A festival included in the international Russian Seasons cultural project has taken place in Berlin, the Rossotrudnichestvo reports on its website. The organizers chose a quote from Alexander Pushkin's poem "Poet" as its name - "The divine verb will touch sensitive hearing ...". The purpose of the event was the promotion of Russian classical literature among children living in Germany.
About a hundred people took part in the competition. For two days, young talents read poems and prose by the greatest Russian poets and prominent Russian writers. Viewers were lucky to listen to not only classical authors for such events - Pushkin, Lermontov, Tvardovsky, Marshak, Gogol, but also to those not so famous among children - Vysotsky, Varlamova, Dyadin, Sinyavsky and others.
The event was attended by the Department of Public and External Relations of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, the Department of Culture of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, the Surgut Music and Drama Theater and the Rossotrudnichestvo representative office in Germany.
The results of the competition will be announced and all festival participants awarded on September 29, at the season-closing performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
