In the theater “Romen” said goodbye to Nikolai Slichenko to the gypsy music

Friends and colleagues remember the main Roma of the country

On July 4, the Romen Theater said goodbye to the People’s Artist of the USSR Nikolai Slichenko, who died on July 2 at the age of 87. The main gypsy of the country was buried at the Troekurovsky cemetery.

Since 1977, Slichenko headed the world’s only professional gypsy theater, where he came, or rather, arrived at the age of 16 from a gypsy collective farm. His fellow countrymen, recognizing great talent in the guy, sold a sack of wheat and sent him to Moscow. And he did not disappoint them.

In the theater, he started from the basics and bottoms, became a famous artist, collected entire stadiums. After the performances, a crowd of fans lifted Nikolai Slichenko along with the car and carried him in their arms. With a phenomenal temperament, powerful male charisma, he devoted all his strength to the theater and vocal career. Filmed a little, but already one “Wedding in Malinovka” was enough for a big country to fall in love with him. On anniversaries, Nikolai Alekseevich was brought with armfuls of flowers, and then they were taken out in dozens of trucks. Congratulations ended late at night. In pandemic times, such a crowded goodbye is out of the question. Colleagues, fans and closest people came. Peers of the same age most often no longer go to funeral events – it is too dangerous. Portraits of Nikolai Slichenko were displayed in the foyer and on the stage. Gypsy music was playing. What’s next for Romen is hard to say.

Nikolai Slichenko is survived by two sons – his own and an adopted one, a daughter and a wife, who bear the same name – Tamilla.

The artistic director of the Satire Theater, Alexander Shirvindt, was friends with Nikolai Slichenko for many years. Here’s what he told MK:

– Aksakals are leaving, leaving …. I remember 1957, the service entrance to the Lenkom theater, not from the facade, but from the gateway. At the entrance to the right – a room where Markov’s brother and sister Rimma and Lenya lived. The room was tiny, some 3.5 meters, but this did not prevent our youth company from getting together. There sat Kesha Smoktunovsky (at one time he was in one-time roles in “Lenkom”), Seva Larionov, the legendary “fifteen-year-old captain”. Every evening Kolya Slichenko came to this room with a guitar – a white-toothed handsome man, bright, powerful. He was very sociable and not at all a gypsy party. Kolya was a creative gypsy, then he led the theater. Kind, broad, charming – and these qualities cannot be bought or received by pull. And here we are, young, free, liberated, but in moderation, in a pool we bought cheap sausages, squash caviar, cheap drinks. And in this room the Markovs sang, walked and were absolutely happy. Since that time, Nikolai Slichenko and I never parted in life, although every year we met less and less, but when we saw each other, we remembered our youth and dreamed.

Long-term head of the theater, journalist Alla Smekhova has worked in “Romen” for 18 years.

– For the first time I saw Nikolai Alekseevich while still a student and was in a stupor after his performance at the Actor’s House. He had such a powerful energy with which he burst onto the stage. He grew up in a simple family, but his mother sat at the piano and could play any melody. Nikolai Alekseevich rarely gave interviews, but I managed to talk with him and his wife Tamilla Sudzhaevna, after which we developed a warm relationship. When I was left without work after the liquidation of the State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company, Nikolai Alekseevich called and offered me a job. He always had a willingness to help those who needed something. If someone was in poverty, he would bring suits and shoes. He was a very tactful, gentle and tolerant person, never offending anyone. But at the same time, he kept such a complex team tightly. Nikolai Slichenko is a real nugget. He and his wife were very domestic people, rarely went out, but they loved to visit the Actor’s House. They lived together for 60 years, supported each other. Nikolai Alekseevich took great care of his wife and constantly consulted with her. He was extraordinarily handsome, charm itself. A brown cashmere overcoat and a hat of the same kind suited him very well. This was my favorite outfit. When people came to the theater from television, I told him to come out only in this coat in front of the cameras. There are few gypsies, but what a distinctive culture they have, and Nikolai Slichenko kept it all his life, but at the same time he could not stand talking about kibitki.

“The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco sees herself as a feminist

“If that’s not feminism.” In the US series by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady from 2007 to 2019 she played the role of Penny, a young woman who makes her way as a restaurant operator and actually wants to become an actress. She lives across from a shared apartment between two scientists, Leonard and Sheldon, and marries Leonard over the course of the series.

The role as Penny helped Cuoco to worldwide fame. Difficulties to be compared to it again and again seem to have not encountered her. “On the contrary.

Cinema – Indiana Jones hat brings in $ 300,000 at auction


The iconic headgear worn by Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was sold for double its estimate.

Indiana Jones’ famous hat is worth a small fortune.


The fedora the 78-year-old actor wore in the 1984 film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom sold far beyond his estimate at a Prop Store auction in Los Angeles on Tuesday . The iconic hat from the second film in the blockbuster action movie series grossed double the estimated $ 150,000, according to the auction house. But this hefty sum remains below the selling price of the fedora from the first film in the saga, Raiders of the Lost Ark, which sold for more than $ 500,000 in 2015.

The two headgear looks very similar, according to the auction house. “Costume designer Anthony Powell and assistant costume designer Joanna Johnston worked closely with Herbert Johnson to update it by incorporating a more tapered crown than in the previous film.” As to its condition, The Prop Store said it was “excellent … showing slight wear with some signs of age”.

As for Harrison Ford, who is currently shooting the fifth Indiana Jones, he is recovering from a shoulder injury that put filming on hold for three months.
