This debut production by young director Alexander Nikitin is based on a mix of texts by Fyodor Dostoevsky and Alexander Pushkin. Fragments of Dostoevsky's novels The Idiot and Demons, as well as Pushkin's dramatic poem Mozart and Salieri, are collected under the heading of a concert - as if a musician were to choose a few sonatas for performance. The genre of "dramatic concert" explains the implicit connection in Dostoevsky.fm of all three works and allows you to listen to them as if they were a kind of music. Three parts, three heroes, three texts accompanied by a radio broadcast and the voice of an announcer presenting each subsequent "number" - this is the structure of the composition created by young artists and composers. The internal connection of the fragments is not explicit, but lies implicitly in the essence of the performance.
