A premiere at the Big Stage of the Music Hall Theatre – a children’s musical performance «The Bremen Town Musicians»!

The old tale of the Brothers Grimm became popular and a dearly loved by the people after the release of the record with the music of Gennady Gladkov with lyrics by Yuri Entin and the creation of a cartoon of the same name. The performance of the Music Hall Theatre is staged by the winner of the St. Petersburg's Highest Theatre Prize «Golden Sofit» Natalia Indeykina. The plot tells about the romantic love story, true friendship and taste of adventures. The young spectators will go off on a journey around the world together with the Troubadour, the Donkey, the Cat, the Dog, and the Cock, meet the robbers and the formidable Ataman’s Wife, save the life of the King, make friends with the beautiful Princess and sing the favorite songs.

Gennady Gladkov’s music is considered to be classic. In the Music Hall Theatre, the songs about «a ray of a golden sun» and «the enticing vaults of royal palace» can be heard in live performance. The modern orchestration gives the fabulous music the originality and new sounding. The well-known melodies will sound in a different manner, but remain recognizable. The lyrics of the songs that are performed in the production are perceived as aphorisms for a long time, and the poems have such features as plasticity and musicality; children memorize them easily.

 The decoration of the musical performance is the soft decorations with several designs of the wings flats and the top masking borders. This time, the famous video director Vadim Dulenko became not only the author of the video installations but a stage designer. The video projections that are a combination of video art and live action will paint a classic story with new colors.

The assistant of the production designer Valeria Ballek creates the expressive objects on the stage: the spectacular Royal Gate, the Royal Carriage that is a funny mix of the throne and the bicycle, and a huge robber’s fire. The original choreography by Sergei Naryshev occupies a special place in the performance. The artist Tatiana Kudryavtseva focuses on the absolute recognizability of the images when creating costumes.

 The family performance «The Bremen Town Musicians» is a musical tale for adults and children, a hymn to youth, which is characterized by such features as courage, lightness, and openness to the world. The staging will be interesting to a wide audience, even to the youngest viewers. The famous story of the «The Bremen Town Musicians» is loved by both children and adults. The familiar melodies, bright costumes and the brilliant acting of the actors allow nobody to stay indifferent.
