MINSK, 21 January (BelTA) – The National Theater of Belarusian Drama will live stream one of its most popular productions – Career of Doctor Raus – at 19:00 (local time) on 23 January, BelTA has learned from the theater.

Career of Doctor Raus tells the story of Francysk Skaryna, a person who was born ahead of his time, the theater said. Instead of telling about the achievements of the Belarusian book printing pioneer, the production focuses on the emotions of a person and the obsession with novel ideas that changed the life of the humanity.

The production was directed by Aleksandr Gartsuyev in 2017, timed to the 500th anniversary of the Belarusian book printing. It is based on a play by Viktor Martsinovich and is one of the theater’s most popular productions

The high-quality multi-camera filming will enable every spectator to immerse in the atmosphere of the theater hall and see everything happening on stage from various angles. The live stream will be free in all parts of the world. The link to the stream is available on the theater’s website.

From 15 January to 15 February, the theater is running a project to show productions from its repertoire online.
