    This audacious, witty play is in the best way entered in repertoire of youth theatre. The main problem of the play is a choice the young man of his place in a life, struggle for freedom, for a triumph of eternal universal humanistic ideals.

Ah, these Middle Ages, –
The Destiny of the people is hard!
All of us today under a heel
At Inquisition "sacred"…

    The Middle Ages. Flanders. In family of coalminer Klaas was born a son Till by nickname Eulenspiegel that mean «I’m your mirror». He also has grown the great joker and the prankish, and «wandered all over the world, glorifying all kind and beautiful and on stupidity splitting his sides with laughter»

Joke, joke, my boy,
Also remember one -
The more laughter in the world,
The less fear in it.

    The history about Till Eulenspiegel where in one character are united both the witty young man, and the national hero, both the philosopher, and Romeo, always drew the attention of theatre and cinema. Wonderfully the events are described by Charles de Coster in the novel, the struggle for freedom in Flanders of XVI th century, they are interesting to the spectator these days.
    The Producer Boris Granatov with his creative team has put a bold youth performance where the past and the present, theatrical convention and grotesque wonderfully have intertwined, original “Gorin” humour, original scenery and costumes, naughty songs and modern musical stage design in style "Rock", bright dynamical dances and plasticity.
