Every generation of actors at the Masterskaya Theatre has its own great novel. The Idiot, And Quiet Flows the Don… and now The Master and Margarita. Kozlov’s current batch of students, currently in their fourth and final year at the Russian State Institute of Performing Arts, are for the first time taking the stage in order to, over the course of two evenings, present one of the greatest Russian novels of the 20th century.

The Master and Margarita is a story about love and fear ruling the world. About those who put minds and souls into a whirlwind. About artists and poets. About a ruler who betrays one such person, and about a woman who renounces everything to save another one.
