«Me together with my brother decided to go and to try ourselves. We have prepared our programs. I was singing aria of Maria Magdalena from „Jesus Christ Superstar“. So we’ve entered. I was taken to the theatre troupe though I wanted to enter the popular troupe. But I do not regret about it because I have discovered myself as the actress»
A year later the troupe broke up because of not very strong management. Alena again is looking for herself and for her own way.
