Ugra residents spent Saturday culturally: the Festival Night within the 17th Festival "Spirit of Fire" was held today in CTC "Ugra-Classic".
This unique art project is held for the second time and has become a "hallmark" of the film forum. This year it was visited by more than 2 thousand people. From evening to late at night, all 7 stages worked in "Ugra-Classic": from the foyer "Svet Onyxa" to Grand and Organ halls. There were surprises on every stage: meeting with a movie star, a performance, a master class, a performance of a famous musician or a whole orchestra!
The Festival Night began in the foyer "Svet Onyxa". Here guests were met by charming host Evgeny Sinebok. He entertained the guests with interesting competitions on the cinema theme, in which each winner received a prize from the partners of the event.
The opening of the "Night" was attended by the honorary guest of the Festival, the famous German actress Nastassja Kinski. She greeted the participants of the evening. "Today I spoke with wonderful, special children. This meeting filled me with love and gratitude... Do good deeds for the sake of world peace!"
The actress admired the winter and the nature of the Siberian region and noted that being in such a beautiful place is a special experience for her.
The concert program was continued by a musician, actor, poet, author and performing musician Vasily Urievsky. The musician welcomed all the participants, called on the audience to leave their seats and come closer to the stage to immerse themselves in the friendly, informal atmosphere of the author song concert. Vasily noted that most of the songs are likely to be unknown to the public, as he himself writes all the words and music and little where rotated, but his lyrics are simple and fun, that will allow listeners to quickly "get into" the mood and rhythm. So it happened, the spontaneous concert was quite successful, the audience sang along with Vasily, laughed at his jokes, danced and supported the artist in every possible way: applause and enthusiastic exclamations.
The highlight of the Festival Night was a concert program dedicated to the music of world cinema, performed by the Ugra Brass band under the direction of maestro Sergey Sviridov.
World cinema is known to all not only for actors, directors and operators, as well as for its unusually beautiful, epic music. Sometimes stories and scenarios become forgotten, but the tunes from favourite movie remain with the viewer.
The magic of film music was transmitted even stronger thanks to the original solution – video projection on a huge screen, as well as lighting effects that turned the concert into a real show.
Familiar and favourite melodies of the listeners sensitized the hall to warm wave and caused a stormy reaction of the audience. After all, this is a real musical gift, performed fresh, temperamental, bright, unforgettable…
Guests of the Night were able "to move cinewrinkles" in the Vienna Cafe. There was a real intellectual battle "Kinofarsh" ("Cinemince").
Everybody knows about "Kinofarsh" in Khanty-Mansiysk. It is a place where the most avid filmgoers meet. They answer questions and perform tasks on the theme of movies and TV series.
The organizers of "Kinofarsh" prepared for the Festival Night. They came up with the most interesting and tricky questions on the Soviet cinema, dedicating them to fans of the films "Operation Y", "The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!", "Office Romance", "Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears" and others.
Music baton was handed over to the CTC "Ugra-Classic" groups. Beautiful girls of the ensemble "Mlada" performed familiar songs that sounded in beloved of all movies. Chamber orchestra "Siberia Brass" made the audience to move fiery to the sounds of brass instruments, proving once again that "the brass players" can play modern hits in their original sound.
The grand Night ended with a disco by tradition.
