OJSC Nordea Bank has become an official sponsor of Novosibirsk City Drama Theatre under the direction of Sergey Afanasyev, the Penza Regional Drama Theatre named after A.V. Lunacharsky and the New Experimental Theatre (Volgograd). The Bank is well-acquainted with these regions, as its branches operate there. The Bank will allocate funds for development of the theatres and for various creative projects. In particular, this year premier presentations and benefit nights financially backed by the Bank will be held in all the theatres listed above. The Penza Regional Drama Theatre will go on a tour to Hungary presenting two stage plays. The New Experimental Theatre is going to make several performances for the disadvantaged and socially unprotected citizens, including orphans, pensioners, disabled people, and children of large families.
“OJSC Nordea Bank is glad to take part in such a socially significant event as the support of the regional theatres. We think that it is necessary to encourage the theatrical art development in Russian regions, since theatres outside Moscow and St Petersburg pretty often face lack of funds. We hope that performances backed by the Bank will bring joy and happiness to many citizens of the Novosibirsk, Volgograd and Penza regions,” said Igor Bulantsev, the Chairman of the Management Board of OJSC Nordea Bank.
