Dmitry Nazarov and his wife and colleague Olga Nazarova lost their jobs at the Moscow Art Theater last week after a huge scandal involving Russian songs and interviews criticizing the special operation. And now the tour of the actors around the country is a big question: for example, in Nizhny Tagil the play “The Root of Love”, scheduled for February 1, has already been canceled.
Meanwhile, as the KP.RU website found out, before that the artist actively toured the whole country not only with a company, but also with concerts that were paid from the budget. In total, Nazarov found 28 government orders worth 6.8 million rubles, moreover, the actor signed some of them after the performance of his sensational ditties.
So, Nazarov’s last contract is the concert “Twelve months” on December 24, 2022 at the Chelyabinsk Philharmonic, paid for from the regional budget. For this performance, the star of “Kitchen” received a fee of 197 thousand rubles. In addition, at the expense of the host, the invited artist received a flight from Moscow and back in business class, transfer and accommodation in a four-star hotel suite.
A couple of months before that, Nazarov performed at the Moscow Philharmonic: only in the concert program “Treasure Island” (180 thousand rubles), he read a fairy tale about Winnie the Pooh for two days (fee for both appearances in the scenario: 360 thousand ).
The actor also took part in patriotic concerts. For example, all in the same Chelyabinsk region in May 2020 Dmitry Nazarov spoke at four events “On the Eve of the Victorious Spring”, earning 900 thousand rubles from the regional budget. The guest from the capital was accommodated in a hotel with three meals a day in a luxury double room. In addition, the artist was also invited to concerts in Voronezh, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Omsk…
Recall that on January 13, the artistic director of the Moscow Art Theater Konstantin Khabensky signed an order for the dismissal of Dmitry Nazarov and his wife. The actor was with the theater company for nearly 20 years and reportedly did not accept the resignation. At least, in media comments, Nazarov denied firing him.
