Aleksandr Belinsky

At the end of Woland's show in the Variety Theatre Bulgakov describes how there was an illusion of having heard once upon a time, under southern stars, in a cafe-chantant, some barely intelligible, half-blind, but rollicking words to a march. Those words are an adaptation by Bulgakov from the vaudeville Lev Gurych Sinichkin from 1839, written by Dmitri Timofeyevich Lenskii and filmed by Alexandr Belinsky in 1974.

Here you can hear the original - less rollicking - words as they were written by Lensky and filmed by Belinsky.
