Faust to be presented at the 7th St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum

Our internationally acclaimed co-production of Faust, a dramatic poem by Goethe, directed by Tomaž Pandur, presented by the SNT Drama Ljubljana and the Ljubljana Festival, will be performed on Friday, 16 November at 19.00, on the main stage of the famous Alexandrinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. The guest performance in Russia is a follow-up of many successful presentations of Faust in European, Asian and South American cities where it has been seen by a total of over 30,000 viewers. Faust will be presented on the opening night of the 7th St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum, considered to be the most important and prestigious cultural event in the Russian Federation. The Forum, rightfully recognized as a global event, attracting thousands of experts in the field of culture, foreign delegations and representatives of authorities and artists from all over the world annually, will also be attended by the Slovenian Minister of Culture, Mr. Dejan Prešiček.

The guest appearance of the SNT Drama Ljubljana in Russia, its first in the Alexandrinsky Theatre, is a result of excellent cooperation and exchange between Slovenian culture in the Russian Federation and the Russian culture in Slovenia, which was facilitated and supported by the Slovenian and Russian Ministries of Culture and the Slovenian Embassy in Russia and the Russian State Rusconcert cultural agency. The guest performance of Faust is a new step of this cooperation, representing further strengthening of traditionally good cultural collaboration between Slovenia and the Russian Federation.
