Former colleagues of Oleg Menshikov, who were fired by him from the Yermolova Theater, talked about the amounts of their former patron's fee, which greatly surprised the devoted fans of the famous artist.
Many celebrities say that a grandiose scandal is brewing at the Yermolova Theater. On the eve, the head of the theater, Oleg Menshikov, fired twenty-two people from the troupe, citing the difficult financial situation caused, among other things, by the pandemic. The artists took offense and disclosed information to the press that had previously been closed. So, Menshikov's fee for one performance became known. It must be admitted that the artistic director did not deprive himself of himself.
Yelena Burkhanova-Kalinina, an actress of the Yermolova Theater, noted that Oleg Evgenievich charges himself 103 thousand rubles for a performance, the same amount he receives monthly for managing the theater, taking into account the bonus for the title of People's Artist.
Burkhanova-Kalinina also admitted that she herself earns only two thousand per performance. But the invited artists with star status earn at the Yermolova Theater from 60 to 80 thousand rubles and more. The actress also said that artistic directors of other theaters charge about 60 thousand rubles for going on stage, and it is not clear to her why Menshikov charges himself a fee that is almost twice as high.
Recall that shortly before the actress's revelations, Oleg Evgenievich's assistant phoned the troupe, and those who remained were invited to a meeting at a five-star hotel, and those who were decided to be fired were notified that the cooperation was over. Twenty-two people is quite a lot, and the offended artists on the day of the troupe's meeting decided to give a press conference to tell about Menshikov and his administrative work that no one knew before.
