OREANDA-NEWS "The Litvinenko's widow agreed and enthusiastically allowed their story to be used in the production - it is clear that this is not a free question", - said Dmitry Kulikov, a political scientist and a member of the Zinoviev Club.

The music for this action was not written by a composer, but by a British investor. Anthony Bolton has such a hobby. "The story has all the components of an opera: it's about power, politics, love, betrayal, murder - that's what many, many operas are about" , - he says.

Marina Litvinenko in her post-premiere interviews with the British media does not exclude further, so to speak, popularization of the story of the poisoning of her husband. "Now it is an opera, and then there can be a film!" - the widow hopes.
