The artificial snow used on the set was hazardous to health, says the choreographer.

Choreographer Alla Sigalova became one of the heroines of Maxim Galkin's program "Tonight", which appeared on the air on December 28, reports Express Gazeta.

The issue was dedicated to the program "Old songs about the main things", which since 1996 has been invariably present on the New Year air of Channel One. Recalling the details of the filming, in which she participated with director Janik Fayziev, Sigalova said that working under the direction of producer Konstantin Ernst was life-threatening: “It was a great test, because this snow, which looks so beautiful, is a terrible poison. That is, Konstantin Lvovich just hounded us all! Especially me and Janik, who practically did not leave the pavilion... And he seeped everywhere: into the pores, into the nose, into the nasopharynx... Then we could not breathe".

The general director of Channel One, who also came to Galkin, in response to the accusations, objected that the best snow was used on the set, which was purchased abroad and cost fabulous money. “They couldn't breathe, but they look great for 25 years”, - Ernst joked.
