The Organising Committee of the Golden Soffit, St. Petersburg's topmost theatre award, has announced the nominations for the 2019/2020 season.
In appreciation of his scenery, designed for Iñaki Urlezaga's The Queen of Spades production at the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre, the experts have selected Ezio Frigerio for the the Best Artist in Music Theatre nomination. Whereas Andrey Sorokin, soloist at the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre, has been nominated for one of the Expert Panel's Special Prizes, for his excellent portrayal of Hermann in The Queen of Spades. Another nominee for a Special Prize is costume designer Tatiana Noginova. The experts have deemed her many years of successful work in music theatre worthy of recognition. We believe that her recent cooperation with our Theatre during the restoration of Leonid Yacobson's Choreographic Miniatures, has done its part to build up her dazzling portfolio. Our congratulations to the nominees!
We sincerely hope that all of them receive the prestigious titles they have been nominated for!
