“The doors of the theater are always open”: Khabensky does not hold a grudge against Anatoly Bely, who left the Moscow Art Theater25.07.2022
Considering that Chulpan Khamatova, Andrei Makarevich and many other artists who left Russia over the past few months have faced a flurry of criticism, it was not surprising when it fell upon Bely as well.
On the Web, he was immediately dubbed a “traitor”, and director Tigran Keosayan said that this situation does not cause him anything but “Homeric laughter.”
Anatoly Bely does not care about the negative that flies in his address. He admits: before leaving, he was afraid of meeting with only one person – his immediate boss and artistic director of the Moscow Art Theater, Konstantin Khabensky.
