Dedicated to the memory of the outstanding playwright Vadim Levanov. For me, two great personalities — the Russian playwright Vadim Levanov and the French king Charlemagne-merged in one portrait, in one soul. War was Karl’s life, Creativity was Vadim’s salvation. Two destinies separated by ten centuries. In the year 800, on Christmas day, the Pope crowned Charles as king of the Franks! In 2011, at the age of 44, a modest and incredibly talented playwright and Director Vadim Levanov, the author of more than forty plays, as well as screenplays and prose works, left this world at the age of Christmas.he gave the Russian theater many famous names and gathered around him the brightest playwrights and Directors.
