The actor to whom Brodsky dedicated his “Theatrical” was 83 years old.
The death of the People’s Artist of the RSFSR was reported by the press service of the theater of the Moscow City Council, in which he served. At the end of December, the media wrote about the urgent hospitalization and the serious condition of the actor, but the theater then said that Jurassic was in the hospital for preventive treatment.
He starred in films such as The Golden Calf, The Meeting Place Cannot Be Changed, Love and Pigeons, Queen Margot and many others.Joseph Brodsky dedicated the Jurassic poem “Theatrical”. The actor found out about this after the death of the poet and was so impressed that he wrote his own Theatrical, which, like Brodsky, ends with the word “Curtain”.
