About

GLORIOUS! – true story of a famous American singer Florence Foster Jenkins. Despite her complete incompetence in singing, this amazing woman enjoyed great public success. Critics mercilessly scolded her, but the shows of the worst singer in the world sold very well, and legion of her followers was willing to pay twice the price to get to see her live performance. One of the fans of Florence was famous Enrico Caruso…

Ignoring the laughter and criticism, Florence appeared on stage in a bright sparkly dress with angel wings at her back and sang, sang, sang. “People may say I can’t sing, but no one can say I didn’t sing”, said Jenkins. The audience adored her for her courage, sincerity, eccentricity and incredible inner freedom.

Fearless, bright, unlike anyone else, Jenkins is the ideal type for Roman Viktyuk and he dedicates his artistic work to such people.

Roman Viktyuk says about the play: “…Why do people still remember Jenkins and why she has not disappeared from human memory, though it has been almost 70 years since she died? The reason for that is il fuoco sacro (the Holy Fire) as the Italians like to say, that burned in her all her life”.

Audience will find poignant, honest, colorful and provocative statement about one of the most amazing women in the world.
