PERFORMANCES

Vyacheslav Timoshin, Alexander Savchuk
(Surprising story based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale)
THE STEADFAST TIN SOLDIER

          
          

    What do toys when their little owners sleep? You think they lay, thrown, in the box? No, in them human feelings wake up and the life begins: they speak, argue, are on friendly terms, quarrel, reconciled, love, worry Absolutely, as people

    Children, at our performance you will get to such revived world of toys. Its inhabitants: the Rag Doll, the Pig-coin box, Piero, the Mechanical Nightingale, the Ballerina from a cardboard small house, are toys of boy Hans. Any he loves and plays them, any has thrown and has forgotten. The most important "favourite" is the self-assured Troll from a snuffbox. But here Hans has a set of tin soldiers. The Troll did not like at once these new "inhabitants", especially one of them: the SteadfastTin Soldier who was grown fond by the beauty the Ballerina from a cardboard small house. The troll himself dreams to marry it and tries to prevent wedding of the loving couple in every possible way. But their sincere nobleness, hot hearts and love is much stronger than cunning and insidiousness of the Troll. Only the love is capable of a great, fine miracle!
