Nadezhda Georgievna, have you really conceived your theater as a child?

Yes, it all started with the thought of little Nadyukha, who was playing in the theater under the stove, and then she grew up to Nadezhda Babkina and a real theater in the center of Moscow. I had been collecting all the certificates and documents for so long that when construction began, I was surprised myself - did it really happen? When the builders dug a pit and showed me the place where the stage will be, I decided that it was time to spiritualize the concrete now. I went out with an ensemble and sang.

You were in Sochi in the morning, and now in the theater, you are selecting photos to decorate the lobby. Always such a busy schedule?

I had a few days in a row shooting new issues of the “Fashion sentence”, I came home at half past one in the morning, at two. As long as you wash off the makeup, take a shower, already half past two on the clock.Four programs were filmed, and in the morning I flew to Peter to congratulate the food industry workers. She returned to Moscow at night, with the last flight, and already at six in the morning the driver drove me to Vladimir for the 70th anniversary of the region, to my girlfriend, Governor Svetlana Yuryevna Orlova. I went not to work, without any concert applications, but to support her with my presence. I could not say to Svetlana Yurievna, you know, Light, I want to sleep! I got it, had breakfast, turned the beauty, dripped drops in my red eyes and we went to a festive procession through the central streets of Vladimir. And that night I flew to Sochi for the Formula 1 race. Today I returned, and immediately to the theater. I am very worried, soon the discovery, I have to decorate everything, arrange it so that people are interested in it. My day always starts early. Since the evening I have been writing a plan for myself - the path of movement and all the points that I have to realize. For example, today, after our conversation, I need to hit three more points, and I’ll be in time.

Relax with this rhythm?

This year my vacation is five days at sea. Together with Zhenya, we flew to the children - Danilo, Tatiana and grandson Georgy to Bulgaria.They had a rest for a week, and we were prepared a luxurious room. The first two days I just slept! The sea breeze and rains only inspired sleep. Even the food passed, so the body exhausted. At home, I can not afford this. When people ask me in Moscow - what do you dream? I answer - nothing! I lay down on my pillow for 10 minutes and I am in nirvana. Two sunny days I spent at sea with George. The water was cold. He ran with blue lips and shouted - Nadia, I still have to swim, and Nadia herself is already all stupid. We leave both ice ashore, George says - gray me. I quickly throw a warm towel over him, snuggle up, and he repeats everything - gray me, hug me.
