In the Cankar Hall, the first months of the new year are dedicated to one of the greatest novel writers of all times - Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy. The focus is on the co-production staging of War and Peace, and exhibitions, lectures, and other happenings with the purpose of throwing light upon the different facets of the Russian literary giant.

The work of Tolstoy will be discussed by domestic and foreign connoisseurs at a number of lectures. They will also try to establish what Tolstoy can tell to today's readers. Two exhibitions have been prepared, and Tolstoy's work will be introduced to children through a musical narrative event.
