The 2022 Crystal Turandot Theater Award was awarded in Moscow. The 31st award ceremony was held at the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Center. This year we decided to abandon the usual practice of awarding the achievements of the last theatrical season in several categories. In 2022, they left one nomination – the main one – “For honor, dignity and service to the viewer.”

The person in charge and founder of the award, director Boris Belenky, says that this is an atypical year, and that is why the ceremony is special: “And the most important thing here is not the skill of directors, set designers, etc. The most important thing is to reward people for their honor and dignity. Because today honor and dignity is what illuminates the public, the people…”

The prize of the Executive Committee of the CIS “For honor, dignity and service to the viewer” was awarded to the theater and film actor, People’s Artist of the Republic of Belarus, Vladimir Gostyukhin. 76-year-old Vladimir Vasilyevich is in excellent shape – he works. Gostyukhin was touched and even worried in front of his colleagues: “It is easier to go on stage, on the set, than now here. I’m shaking! I’m going to get another prize. It feels like they’re trying to…”

By tradition, all in black and in a trouser suit, Irina Apeksimova was a little worried: “When colleagues recognize you, this is the most important thing. It is very moving. This is great!” As always, the elegant Nonna Grishaeva was modest: “I always feel awkward, it is much easier for me to give than to receive.”

To congratulate Nonna Grishaeva, her colleagues from the Vakhtangov Theater, People’s Artist of Russia Maria Aronova and her son, actor Vladislav Gandrabura, took the stage. Aronova affirmed that since the year 90 she had not had a better stage partner.

Distinguished artist Olga Kabo touchingly congratulated and presented the award to People’s Artist of Russia Valery Barinov: “Being a real man, only he can reliably carry such a fragile and incredibly beautiful princess like Turandot in his hands.”
