Carrot for the Emperor
It happens that a bunch of carrots can be more important than ten cannons, and the ability to grind a funny face is more valuable than a military victory.
1819 year. Fifteenth anniversary of the coronation of the Emperor Napoleon. Napoleon, along with the two remaining devoted generals in exile on the island of St. Helena. But he does not suspect that he owes the commoner Josefine Pontiu, who named her four sons in honor of the Emperor Napoleon: Napoleon-Francois, Napoleon-Joseph, Napoleon-Bernard and Napoleon-Louis. And then Josephine Pontiu gets to St. Helena to present the Emperor his account ...
What can Napoleon connect with the commoner Josephine Pontiu? In 1819, on the island of St. Helena, the violent Corsican became his closest man ...
The Emperor is bored on a deserted island. Little by little, his memoirs dictate to two generals loyal to him, reading - that's all the lessons. The visit to the island of Josephine brightened his dull life.
But how could she wear the Emperor's dress uniform to the scarecrow? Is it really the most valuable crop of carrots?
This performance is a simple and romantic story about the last days of the emperor's life. An energetic commoner milking goats, feeding chickens, but most importantly - pleases the emperor with his kindness and sincere generosity.
A scene is tricky when she teaches the emperor to build faces. And communication with a nice woman, who only looks like a battle-woman, becomes more valuable to him than any military victories.
The ship takes Josephine home. Will she return to Napoleon?
“ Recently I went to the Anton Chekhov Theater on the bright comedy "Carrot for the Emperor." Director Leonid Trushkin managed to create an interesting production with vivid unique characters. In the comedy of Jiri Gubach, a story is told about the life of Napoleon (Gennady Khazanov) imprisoned on the island, about how the once brave emperor lost all his greatness and was forced to "live" his last days in the company of two generals. But then she appears - a burning Corsican (Inga Oboldina) with a bright character ... and ... all the fun begins ... life on the island will definitely not be the same !!! The scenery is minimalistic, all the attention of the audience is focused on a brilliant acting. Inga Oboldina turned into a bright strong-willed woman who masterly knows how to make faces. Gennady Khazanov is a desperate emperor who has lost the meaning of life and has found him again. The Anton Chekhov Theater is able to make an incredible spectacular ending. I will not reveal the cards, but you will see a very effective and beautiful end. The performance turned out to be funny, touching and motivating. After the performance, a lot of thoughts appeared that you should not put off your life, sit in a cage (dungeon, apartment), and it's time to act. The next shows will be held on November 3 and 7.
“ Watched last season. Khazanov surprised with drama and performing talent - that's who honestly works! The play is touching, the direction is clear - how I love it when you do not have time to get bored. I came to my senses in the very finals, when everyone was already clapping. I felt disconsolate. And in the middle the whole hall laughed a lot. Maybe it was planned - still, a comedy. ))
“ The performance is simply stunning! Laughed and cried. Khazanov is simply incredible! So deep, so different, so thin. To be honest - it was quite unexpected to see him like this. And I just adore Oboldin. She is a brilliant actress. And the story itself, on the one hand, is piercing and touching, and on the other, homerically ridiculous. I took the whole family. And with joy I will go again with my friends.
