“Aviator” Dmytro Todoriuk received a prestigious theatrical prize

One of the frontmen of AVIATOR became the director of the best children’s play of the year.

Dmytro Todoriuk is known not only as one of the musical “pilots”, singer and songwriter. He is also seriously enthralled by the theater, both as an actor and as a director. The seriousness of this case is spoken by the results: the opera-fairy-tale “King Thrushbeard”, directed by Dmytro, is recognized as the best staging for children under the version of the Kyiv Pectoral Award, the award ceremony of which took place yesterday, March 25.


– Setting of children’s plays is a huge responsibility,  Todoriuk commented.  I am proud of what work our entire team managed to accomplish and find this diamond! We tried to make it in the rhythm in which modern children are used to perceive information. I dedicate this victory to the troupe of the theater (Kyiv Municipal Theater of Opera and Ballet, where the production takes place – note) for their hard work and devotion to their work!

It is worth noting that this is not the first award of Dmytro as a theatrical director: in 2010 he won “Pectoral” for the best musical performance of the year by the production of the comic opera “Breast of Tiresias”.

The world premiere of the Ukrainian-language opera-fairy tale “King Thrushbeard” by composer Yuriy Shevchenko took place last autumn.

The Kyiv Pectoral Prize in the field of theatrical art was founded in 1992 by the Union of Theater Workers of Ukraine with the support of the Main Department of Culture of the Kyiv City State Administration. The covenant figurine is executed in the form of a royal Scythian decoration of the IV. B.C.
