22 April 2021

An autonomous nonprofit organisation “Military-Patriotic Centre “Vympel-SPb” (ANO “VPC” Vympel-SPb”) with the support of the Presidential Grants Fund created an audio performance about the Blockade “Farewell, Leningrad!” which is available free of charge for an unlimited number of people in the mobile application “Listening With Your Heart” (‘Слушая Сердцем’ in Russian).

The performance “Farewell, Leningrad!” is a story about two teenagers, their joys and sorrows, about a first love that could have happened in Leningrad in the most terrible blockade winter of 1941-1942.

The performance is based on real events, the script was written from the diaries of two 16-year-old students. The performance is attended by the playwright of the Alexandrinsky Theatre Tatyana Rakhmanova, the composer-laureate of the Golden Mask award Vladimir Rannev, the director of non-standard performances Kirill Dyukevich and the talented actor Maxim Vitorgan.

In 2021, the organisers plan to create 3 more audio performances about the Blockade, which will be of interest to city guests, including international tourists.
