“In his creations Turgenev makes me think of the Gothic Temple, the walls of which, laying deeply down into the grounds, constantly strive for the heights up above, enchanting the people’s glares with its colorful radiant windows, distinguishingly elegant stair-wells and lacy cravings and, bravely elevating into the clear sky, into the sky of sublime aspirations, the nobility of thoughts and feelings, into the sky of the moral perfections”

Since 1998, the International Festival of Russian Theatres of CIS and the Baltic States “Meetings in Russia” – annual theatrical forum, serving the idea of uniting Russian-speaking theatres – has been organized in the city of St-Petersburg.
“Meetings in Russia” cross all the barriers and bless with the joy of the creative artistic conversation, discover brand-new names and proof that our theatrical family was never broken down but still prospers and strives for the same, alike interests and lives by alike concerns”. (A. Kalyagin) The purpose of the festival is to gather and unite artistic individuals, thus letting them learn from the experiences of each and every one of their fellow colleagues from many different countries.
And theatres, taking part at the festival, demonstrate viewers, colleagues and critics their professional skills and creative state of ensembles.
The Youth Theatre of Uzbekistan has participated in this festival for a whole 16 time.
