The Flying Ship
The show is loosely based on the eponymous animation film.
A widely acclaimed story plot has been rewritten by the authors and new versions of songs were created, along with incredible decorations and costumes. We end up with a remarkable story, where the list of familiar characters is spiced up with toads, mermaids, princes, janitors and the Pie Man.
Baba Yagas (the old witches) sing rock-n-roll and Vodyanoy (a spirit who lives in the water) plays French jazz. This brilliantly hilarious tale for children and adults was directed by Egor Druzhinin, one of the most acclaimed musical directors and choreographers in Russia. Druzhinin is a former child star, who became famous in the USSR after his lead role of Vasechkin in the “Adventures of Petrov and Vasechkin”.
You’ll hear the old songs and the new tunes by Maksim Dunayevsky and Yuri Entin. Be ready for some of your favorite tunes, sparkling humor and a lot of dancing — a dazzling show that celebrates love and dream!
