Georgy Taratorkin - Great Raskolnikov and President of Golden Mask - Passed Away

The People's Artist of Russia died after a long illness on February 4, 2017.

      President of the all-Russian national theatre festival and award "Golden Mask", Georgy Taratorkin was 72 years old.

      After such a triumph Georgy Taratorkin was invited to the  Mossovet Theater, where he worked from 1974 and played several other roles in stage productions after Dostoevsky.

      Altogether he has played in 60 films.

      Georgy Taratorkin was the all-time President of the "Golden Mask" Award and Festival, the most important theatrical events in this country.
