March 27, 2019: the Crimean War subject is far from exhausted, despite the 160-year-old tradition of research and study. Besides new research findings and publications, the public interest for historical events of 1853-1856 has been kept by several newsworthy events, such as the international festival "Defense of Taganrog in 1855"
Another contribution to publicizing the history of Crimean War is the new theater play "1855", which will open on stage of Taganrog Chekhov Theater
in September 2019.
"A theater conference will be held in May 2019 within the framework of the 5th edition of "Defense of Taganrog in 1855"
. It will be attended by famous theater critics, historians and theologians. We will generate a certain program of the unique theater festival, which will be dedicated to military, patriotic and historical plays", told Zurab Nanobashvili, director of the performance.
The next 4th edition of "Defense of Taganrog in 1855" will be held May 17-19, 2019.
