“At myself I am laughing today:
Overwhelmed with my wish to be happy…”
Alexander Vertinsky is an outstanding artist with an amazing destiny. He became an orphan when he was five. Even then, he was enjoying the music on the streets of Kiev, where he was born. The first performance of Vertinsky could be called “I’ll sing for food”: when he moved to Moscow, he has been noticed by the hostess of the Miniature Theater, where he has made his debut and has got a hearty meal for that.
Vertinsky failed at getting educated because of banal burring – his examiner, Konstantin Stanislavski, clearly hasn’t been impressed by Vertinsky’s diction.
Before World War I, Vertinsky lived a bohemian life. When it came to women, he was modest, despite the popularity. But he’s got addicted to cocaine. To deal with it Vertinsky went to the front, where he has been a military medic.
The role of Pierrot can be called significant for Vertinsky. Later he replaced that mask by a concert suit. When the big love came into his life – а girl named Lydia, 34 years younger – Vertinsky has gone abroad with his family, and more than 20 years he has been traveling around the world. Everywhere he had a huge success; in Europe, he made friends with Chaliapin and even with Charlie Chaplin.
However, after returning to his homeland with Stalin’s permission, he literally couldn’t find any peace. Of course, he was incredibly popular; he gave 25 concerts a month, starred in movies. But a strict censorship deprived the artist of the most of his repertoire, because Vertinsky’s songs were outspoken and socially oriented; they were called “intimate confessions”. The song “What I have to say” was especially popular. Vertinsky did not just sing – the characters in his songs gripped people’s hearts, he reflected the mood of the songs by his voice, facial expressions and gestures, all in one.
The “Vertinsky” room is wonderful with its elegant design, posters on the walls and a comfortable sofa. Come and enjoy a theatrical atmosphere here. After all, whether Vertinsky sang or played in the movies – he never stopped being Pierrot with his touching attempt to reveal his soul on stage.
Room will be perfect for families or groups of friends.
