After withdrawal of the Ministry of Culture from the list of heads of "Mask" many started talking that financing will be cut down soon. Creation of an alternative national theatrical award of the Photo is not excluded: Alexander Avilov/AGN Moscow Split between the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and "Golden Mask" remains to one of the most discussed subjects in theatrical community. Many urge to keep calm: nothing serious occurred yet, there are no reasons for hasty judgments. The opinion was expressed by the artistic director of the Moscow Pushkin Drama Theatre Evgeny Pisarev: Evgeny Pisarev the artistic director of the Moscow Pushkin Drama Theatre "Is a lot of noise, but there are no serious consequences. If it concerns money, there will be a scandal. Then it is clear that it is already sanctions, repressive corrective actions for now everything is normal, good. Perfectly, there will be one more award, still some part of figures of theater will be presented with awards. I do not see the conflict, it seems to me that all kept the own opinion". The speech of the chairman of the Union of theatrical figures Alexander Kalyagin at a meeting on distribution of the budget in 1,5 billion rubles for the future year of theater became the trigger.

What can it oppose? It will be withdrawal from "Mask" and creation of own national award. No matter, as it will be called: "The gold helmet" or "Gold spotlights", but on it are necessary years". It is not the first scandal with "Golden Mask" and the Ministry of Culture. The last conflict broke out three years ago when it was decided to appoint sorters then the competition left directors Kirill Serebrennikov and Konstantin Bogomolov. The award is loved and authoritative, but nevertheless the artistic director of "School of the modern play" Iosif Raykhelgauz treats it from tension shares: Iosif Raykhelkhauz the artistic director of "School of the modern play" "Most often all the same awards give both to people talented, and to interesting performances, but they are very prejudiced.
