The name of Timofey Kulyabin is known to everybody in Novosibirsk, even to those who rarely or never go to the theater. The success of his stage productions, for example, the Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth nominated for the Gold Mask, and Alexander Pushkin’s novel Onegin that won the Gold Mask is multiplied with the fact of his young age. Timofey Kulyabin’s novelty of aesthetics, expressiveness and the courage of his stage direction finds coupled with his youth make him sensation in square. What he has made is really extraordinary, both of itself and with regard to his age.

Same year his stage version of the opera Tannhäuser in the Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theater stirred up scandal of the all-Russian scale. Metropolitan Tikhon of Novosibirsk discerned an insult of religious feelings in the stage production of the Tannhäuser opera. In Timofey Kulyabin’s version Jesus Christ is presented as the hero of the erotic movie Grotto of Venus shot by the film director Tannhäuser in the course of action.
