Safety is one of the basic human needs and it was in Russia’s theatrical institutions that people began to truly pay attention to this fact. Hanging up evacuation plans, designating exits from the hall with luminous signs, warning about the rules of conduct in case of emergency; the organizers of The Theatre Olympics 2019 in Saint Petersburg even made spectators safety a priority, which was clearly evident from the information in their festival program. The repertoire here is colourful and includes many famous names and representatives of different schools, beliefs and styles. All of them, however, had been selected in such a way as not to disturb the public, but rather to provide them with pleasure.
