After the dismissal of Dmitry Nazarov from the Chekhov Moscow Art Theater, Konstantin Khabensky had to urgently look for a replacement. The actor was busy in famous repertoire performances.
It became known who Konstantin Khabensky replaced Dmitry Nazarov in the Moscow art play “The Master and Margarita”, based on the novel by Mikhail Bulgakov, in which the actor played the role of Woland. A message about the presentation of a new actor appeared on the official social networks of the theater.
Already on January 29, the actor of the Theater of Satire Anatoly Kot will perform for the first time instead of Nazarov. On January 21, Nazarov was supposed to go on stage at another performance of “Forest”. The production was quickly replaced by the comedy “No. 13D”.

Recall, on January 13, it became known about the dismissal of Dmitry Nazarov from the Moscow Art Theater. The reason for this was the scandalous statements of the actor about Russia’s special operation in Ukraine. The artistic director of the theater Konstantin Khabensky fired the actor and his wife Olga Vasilyeva.
The actor himself commented on his dismissal: “How interesting! I don’t know anything.”
Later, the deputy director of PR of the theater, Vadim Vernik, confirmed the dismissal of Nazarov and his wife. He clarified that the conversation with Nazarov and Khabensky really took place. As a result, a decision was made.
Earlier it became known that the stars of “Kitchen” canceled performances in the cities of Russia. Citizens refuse to attend performances with the participation of the artist.
