Heroes of Our Time

This year as part of the Golden Mask Festival, ARARAT presented its new Limited Edition -ARARAT «Akhtamar» Art Collection, which was created in cooperation with the «Artist» Foundation, and was just in time for World Theatre Day.

The most solemn moment of the ceremony was the presentation of «The outstanding contribution to the development of theatrical art» award. The President of the Festival, Georgiy Taratorkin and soloist of the Bolshoi Theatre Maria Alexandrova, handed the awards to People’s Artist of Russia, Olga Sedletskaya; the artistic director of the Mossoviet Theatre, director Pavel Khomskiy; doctor of Art History, professor Valentina Naidakova; artistic director of the Saint-Petersburg Music and Drama Theatre «Buff» Isaac Shtokbant; actress for the Saint-Petersburg Theatre of Musical Comedy and Peopleґs Artist of Russia, Zoya Vinogradova; film and theatre artist, and People’s Artist of the USSR, Armen Dzhigarkhanyan; and German theatre director Peter Stein. Two other award winners who were unable to attend the ceremony: ballerina and Peopleґs Artist of the USSR, Maya Plisetskaya; and Peopleґs Artist of the USSR, actor and director Valeriy Yakovlev.

During his solemn speech, Georgiy Taratorkin noted the award’s partners, including the Legendary Armenian Brandy ARARAT, which has been supporting the festival for several years. The ceremony of handing out this prestigious award to each winner also included giving them memorable gifts from ARARAT.

After the official part of the festival’s closing ceremony had ended, spectacular installations and an elegant ARARAT cocktail awaited guests in the atrium of the theatre. An exquisite drink made with the Legendary Armenian Brandy with a subtle citrus finish perfectly complemented the atmosphere of the event’s theatrical triumph.
