Opening of St. Cyril’s Church in Kyiv in Kurenivka area after the restoration works held in the late 19th century caused an upheaval among Kyivans. A well-known woman in Kyiv was looking at the parishioners from the iconostasis – Emiliia Prakhova. That was her husband, the art expert Adrian Prakhov, who invited the painter Mykhailo Vrubel from the Petersburg Academy of Arts to decorate St. Cyril’s Church. But he did not know what was going to happen. Find out about the story of the painter M. Vrubel and the woman who was both an angel and a demon for him – in the documentary series “The Game of Fate” by VIATEL Studio narrated by Natalka Sopit.
