This story is long past, in those ancient times, when princes, by all means, wanted to stand fast. They were particularly stubborn when they conceived to marry. And our prince turned out to have a bee in his head. Although his kingdom was very small, he must marry a real princess. But it was not so easy to find her! And lastly, when the last hope to find the cherished princess was almost lost, he found true love. The fairy tale will be performed for you with clock-work precision by the wonderful quartet of actors seeking shelter from rain. They accompany acting with musical numbers, correlating the harmony in music with the harmony in human relations on the stage.

Moving and cute fairy tales of the modern Ural writer Anna Bogacheva become a fascinating family performance that consists of two stories. Our performance is about good attitude to each other, about how important it is to be settled in life and feel useful and needed. But not only about this. We will tell the story of how important it is to keep up and transmit traditions from generation to generation, and what can happen when someone breaks the old-established order. You'll learn the most important mouse mystery: why it is necessary to give milk teeth to the mouse. Do you want to learn it? Come and watch "Fairy tales of my grandmother", because grandmothers do not tell uninteresting fairy tales.

If all the children do not know exactly, they suspect at least that when they go to bed, their toys live an independent life and have the most incredible adventures. Furthermore, the toys have very different temper and behavior. This story tells that the hero must not be young and beautiful and that it is wrong to laugh at those who have grown old, because age means experience and wisdom, it deserves respect.

The premiere of the first performance took place on June 30, 1986


In the colors of Boldin Autumn verses of the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin  the story tells how an old man generously sets the Goldfish free what angers a stingy old woman. But in fact this play shows that people do not appreciate what they get for nothing. Greed of the old woman is boundless, but everything has its limits and patience of the wish-fulfilling fish also comes to the end.

And what is more, it is worth thinking about the fact that life sometimes gives us a golden opportunity, but everyone decides by oneself how to use it.

Among the familiar fairy tale characters in the play a CAT– an artful provocateur – has appeared.



The Magic Flute
Based on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera of the same name


Scriptwriters: E. Schikaneder, K. H. Gündel
Stage director: Karl H. Gündel
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart


Playing time: 50 min without interval

Opened on June 04, 2014


The beautiful music of Mozart will help you perceive and experience a story about the fabulous love of prince Tamino and how the bird catcher Papageno appropriated another's feat and how he was punished for it. Together with prince and his unwitting companion Papageno you will experience adventures that accompany the search for prince's beloved Pamina.

You will see that an honest wizard can be slandered, and credulous people can be misled. But, fortunately, everything turns out happily, and brilliant music of Mozart makes this story not only fascinating, but also especially beautiful. The play is performed in a perfect copy of the model of the historical theater of the 19th century. These "home" theaters came into being in Germany, when the censorship forbade to stage performances delving into hot issues. The late 18th and early 19th centuries in Germany were marked by the high development of dramatic and theatrical art. The great German writers Lessing, Goethe and Schiller raised dramatic and theatrical art in Germany to hitherto unprecedented heights, making with their works a significant contribution to the world culture. Many of their works were written specially for Puppet Theater, including the famous tragedy "Faust."

In ancient Thebes the pestilence begins. King Oedipus seeks the advice of Apollo on how to stop the plague. And he finds out that he needs to banish the murderer of the former ruler of Thebes from the city. Stylish decoration, glorious music, a metaphorical line and voice of only one actor sounding for all characters, as if our contemporary is reading a book, blowing off the dust of centuries, and heroes of this book in their doubts, weaknesses and agonies, appear before the audience. Do you need to go all the way to your goal if they suggest pretending that you do not see it, so it will be better? Everyone makes his own choice. And perhaps repentance is the very road to insight, as befits?

“The Panopticon is a design of ideal prison, when a single watchman in the central tower can observe all inmates at once without ever being seen”.

(Michel Foucault, «Discipline & Punish: The Birth of the Prison»)

When we feel that we are being watched, we start to act. We pretend, we make up, maybe we try to conceal our true self. When we are watching someone, we try to reveal the real person behind the actor’s mask. Light and shadow, to see and be seen and the power of watching are the themes for our play.

A unique performance without words created in the technique of black masking. Actors are not visible, hidden by magic of theater light and black velvet. Figures and objects appear on stage, as if under their own power, living their independent life. Thus, the audience is given a rare chance to look into the creative workshop of the greatest genius of the twentieth century - Pablo Picasso, and to see with own eyes world known, but even today not fully unraveled masterpieces emerging from nothingness…
