The theater on Serpukhovka presented the premiere of this season - the tale "The Secret of the Magic Potion." This is a real fairy tale for the whole family: here you will meet insidious villains, brave “knights”, beautiful girls ... The action of the fairy tale takes place in the Balkans. During the performance, we get acquainted with the traditions of this mysterious land: we get to a real gypsy fair, watch how the bride shows, get acquainted with Balkan instruments and musical motifs. Artem Abramov wrote the script, inspired by Balkan tales. The music for the play was written by Maxim Gutkin, and the words of the songs were written by Andrey Usachev. We hear Serbian chants, traditional instruments (cymbals, tenorgorn, helicon, tobal). I really like the fact that the program says about each of these tools, so the children will learn something new for themselves. The tandem of Victoria Sevryukova and Olga Reznichenko created magnificent costumes. Of course, the costume of the evil alchemist was most impressed: a long shiny coat, neat shoes, and, of course, legs (after all, this role is played by an adult artist). And his formal suit with this huge white wig is just something! “Dishonesty” generally has very strong images, worked out to the smallest detail: huge skeletons, strange and funny goose, goat and bull, funny mice ... luxurious gypsy dresses that evolve at the slightest turn looked elegant. Teresa Durova created a real fairy tale! There is magic here - many tricks and tricks, love that suddenly broke out between the carpenter Petko and a charming young girl, insidious villains dreaming of eternal life and youth .... The theater troupe never ceases to amaze me. It seems that these artists can do anything! They fencing brilliantly, throwing knives, dancing, singing ... In this performance, undoubtedly, Zlorad (Arseny Krakovsky) draws all his attention. A sufficiently tall artist plays a dwarf. As soon as I imagine all his movements within two hours, I want to shout: “Bravo!” Zlorad runs around the stage, jumps onto the table ... there is a complete feeling that we are faced with an ominous sorcerer of a small sprout. Evgeni Mishechkin plays the role of a wandering carpenter Petko. He got a very funny image of a simple and gullible hard worker, who in the end shows all the strength of his character, due to the overwhelming feelings. Many thanks to the Teatrium on Serpukhovka for the incredible opportunity to learn new things, to study the cultures of different countries. I really like this series of performances. We have already met with the Karelian-Finnish epic, the culture of the Balkans ... What awaits us next?
The new performance “Princess and Pierre” was presented at the Theater. It is designed for schoolchildren (my third-grader really liked it). We were carried away by the performance much earlier than we got to the Theater ... Only after reading the annotation, we started discussion. How did the boy and girl end up in the same toilet? What will they do there for two whole days? How can they escape from confined space? The performance was staged in 2019 by Tatyana Mikhaylyuk based on the play “Princess and Pierre” by Milena Baish (translated by Ekaterina Voronova). The whole performance takes place in a school toilet, in which two schoolchildren: an excellent student and a two-member student, are locked up on Friday night. The scenery comes to life with the help of multimedia effects created by Ashot Mefodin. Children's fantasies appear on the walls: here Pierre reincarnated as a powerful robot, here the students went for a walk in the forest. From fantasy and games, they help children to get to know each other better, to understand how they feel ... The costumes of the artists are very stylish. I even wanted all Skoda nicknames to go that way: an ideal large cell, light colors. The performance is suitable for family visits: children will laugh at the topic of situations and emotions that are already encountered in their lives, adults will remember childhood, their school years. There are only two artists on stage: Polina Shashuro (Katarina) and Arthur Matusov (Pierre). They completely reincarnated as their characters, became children ... it seems that the actors themselves are no more than 15 years old. We really liked the performance (my son is 8.5 years old). We have been discussing it for the third day. The child will constantly come up with stories about how his classmates get rid of their unsuccessful tests, how classmates communicate with pigeons. And at home we communicate exclusively in the "Sigurian" language, now we have our secrets and secrets.)
Recently we watched the play “The Prince and the Pauper” at the Teatrium in Serpukhovka. I liked the idea of the performance itself: “in this world, everyone is met by clothes,” and only the closest people can see you behind the parade uniform or rags. This performance is perfect for family viewing. Pay attention to the age limit: 6+, play from children over five years old. We went with the eldest son (8 years). And we both liked the play very much. The scenery easily turns the street gate into the palace chambers. Everything happens incredibly fast! I really liked the musical design of the play. Many thanks to Maxim Gutkin for the music and Andrei Usachev for the incredible poems. The performances used the music of the XVII-XVI centuries of England, Germany, France, Italy, Scotland. This time the musicians settled on the stage and we were able to see absolutely unique instruments, such as the wheel lyre, krumhorn, plastic, bazooka, darbuka .... It’s very good that all the names are written in the program. Thanks to the Teatrium we have already met with no musical culture. The vocalists were very impressed: Emil Ryvkin - so artistic, lively; and Boris Ryvkin - I have already heard his voice in this theater, never cease to admire his manner of performance! The costumes are very spectacular: the inhabitants of the streets are very different from the courtiers. The role of the prince was played by Arseny Krakowski, the role of the beggar (Toma Kenti) - Mark Leschinsky. The "prince" always remained a tudor, and the beggar always remained himself. We really like these artists, we see them quite often on the stage of the theater. Timofey most liked the chefs: Nikolai Zverev, Raphael Najaf-Zade and Gennady Krakow. All the humor was concentrated here) And how they ran after the chicken! Very effective was John Kenti (Peter Korolev) - a real gangster !!! Many thanks to Teresa Durova for such an excellent production! She is instructive, bright, interesting !!!
Congratulations to Teatrium on Serpukhovka with the premiere !!! We set off the mysterious Kalevala, to the very north. Earlier we were not familiar with the Karelian-Finnish epos, now we are studying slowly. I really liked that the program included information about what Sampo is, where Kalevala is, who lives in the gloomy Pohёl ... a new assault hits the residents of Kalevala ... The scenery is great! They change very quickly - a bright, life-filled and colorful village is replaced by something dark and cold. Superb built light !!!! Clear blue, red rays help our heroes in the fight against evil spirits. Lighting designer Sergei Skornetsky managed to create a real magical fairytale world. The northern lights are very beautifully displayed. I also liked the musical background of the play. The music is stylized to the traditional motives of the peoples of the north. We hear here traditional folk instruments: kantele, youkhikko, harp, pipe .... And what are the costumes here !!!! I would like to thank Victoria Sevryukova for the great work done. They are flawless! It is interesting to consider the ethnic costumes of the villagers, and the magnificent dress of the Sorceress Loukhi. The boys, of course, liked the images of werewolves, loony servants, most of all. I want to thank the cast. Such strong and courageous Kuznets Ilmarinen (Rufat Akchurin) and Lumberjack Lemminkäinen (Evgeny Mishechkin), and you believe that they can cope with any scourge, even with the most severe. Gentle and touching Aniki (Daria Lukyancheko). Ulnna (Anastasia Krylova) - fragile and resolute at the same time. The scene in which she plays kantele autumn stirs. The gorgeous witch Louhi (Yulia Yunusheva) - she really plays the role of a villain! On the New Year holidays, during the intermission, and before the performance for children, there will be an interactive performance called “The Tale of the Dwarfs”. Here there will be Santa Claus, the Snow Maiden, and two charming mischievous gnomes! So the kids won't get bored!) Thank you very much to Teatrium and Teresa Durova for a wonderful fairy tale!
We went with two four-year-olds. The performance really liked both adults and children. Very kind and beautiful. Reminds clowning. Very beautiful effects - soap bubbles, lights, decorations, etc.
The musical “The Flying Ship” is one of my favorite children's productions in Moscow!) Our company: two adults and children (5 and 7 years old) left the play in a very cheerful, just magical mood! Teresa Durova managed to create a play that will be interesting and relevant for viewers of any age!) The performance turned out to be bright and dynamic. Of course, new songs were written into the performance, written by Maxim Dunaevsky together with Yuri Entin (they also wrote the music for the cartoon, so the new songs perfectly fit into already familiar motifs), because the duration of the performance is very different from the cartoon (1 hour 50 minutes against 16 minutes) Victoria Sevryukova creates great costumes! Fun is impeccable in its golden, iridescent sundress and golden boots. I really liked the clothes of the dancers, especially the fair ones, and in a frog costume, I could easily go to the carnival) Waterman, of course, had the most spectacular outfit. In combination with the magical gait of Andrei Yermokhin, he helped create incredible effects! Anastasia Krylova is very suitable image of fun. For our family, she is an ideal princess (remember her and Sleeping Beauty). Konstantin Leshchenko was very convincing in the role of Ivan - romantic, holding his own word, ready to do anything for the sake of love. Humorous touch attached frogs and bears. My friend and I laughed to tears!) They are so funny! I liked the decision with the orchestra very much: sometimes the musicians go up to the stage and we can see who plays for us, how the instruments sound. We also appreciated contemporary music inserts: here both ABBA and rap! I think that we will keep the tradition of visiting this performance annually for many years! Every day we sing the songs of the Water One, Babok Yozhek, and we go for a walk to the music with which the performance begins and ends: “And I go and walk ...” Teatrium, Thanks for the fairy tale !!!
We went with the boys to the play "Japanese fairy tale. Samurai Sword ”to Teatrium on Serpuhovka under the direction of Teresa Durova Theresa Durova herself became the director of the performance. The spectacle of incredible beauty! The curtain opens and we are transported to fabulous Japan, to a small village. Here they are able to create a real fairy tale in the Teatrium! The scenery is very bright, all details are thought out. If we find ourselves in a village, then trees that look like bonsai will certainly grow, water flows, people dry rice. In the dungeon, we are waiting for the rocks and a lot of smoke, as if we find ourselves at the mysterious evil cave. For the incredible costumes I want to thank Victoria Sevryukova. She managed to experience the magical Japanese aesthetics, to create unique outfits. Here we will meet and luxurious kimono, a traditional wedding dress, classic samurai clothes. The outfit of Water is most striking, it is mythical and the Magic rises above ordinary mortals, her blue dress shines. Of course, I would like to mention the costume of the main villain Mizu Dorobo: a six-headed monster with four arms. I liked that we didn’t just watch the performance, we’ve got to know all the basics of Japanese culture: we see both traditional wedding, samurai, and dance with fans ... Even assignments from the sorcerer Yosiko receive appropriate) Japanese drums made a special touch. During the performance of the TAIKO in-SPIRATION drummers by the group of their parts, the children died. I liked it very much that children were introduced into the performance. Two charming little girls in kimono gave the statement at the same time lightness and authenticity. Teatrium, thank you very much for your performances!) Definitely, this is not our last meeting!)
Our restless family is again at the Theater. We are watching the children's musical "The Flying Ship" in the favorite Teatrium in Serpukhovka under the direction of Tereza Durova. Probably everyone knows a great cartoon, and we love him too. Therefore, a little worried about whether the theater production will be weaker in perception. I will say right away: our children (5 and 8 years old) laughed and danced during the performance, during the intermission, and then in the subway. And we ourselves were not only accompanying at all. We, adults, it was interesting, funny at jokes, nice to sing along to songs and feel the magnificent energy from the stage. The director of this musical is Teresa Durova, and I would like to note that the proportions of lyrical and funny, playful, naughty and calm, modern and traditional Russian have been successfully observed. I liked very much that the Music is performed live by the orchestra. And at the time of the change of scenery, the musicians rise from the orchestra pit and you can see how they play. We saw that the children sitting in front of us were delighted - they first saw how the orchestra was playing. By the way, there were both classical instruments and folk instruments in it - for example, a balalaika. Even our young theatergoers appreciated this. You remember that the cartoon is only 18 minutes, and the performance is almost a two-hour piece. The favorite characters have additional songs and details to the image. And the composer –Maksim Dunaevsky and the Songwriter - Yuri Entin became the authors of all the music for the musical, they gladly completed the roles of the beloved heroes to a full stage production. Incredibly bright, colorful musical, I would like to mention the costumes from Victoria Sevryukova separately - they are both beautiful and unexpectedly both traditional and modern. And this is not only about glamorous frogs in putts, all were very appropriate to their image, bright, spectacular, combined in themselves Russian traditions and modernity. The performance did not let me get bored for a minute. Scenes followed one another, a lot of movement, jokes and spectacular moments. Just supernachakhodka - the scene of the appearance of instruments (they are played by the Actors) from the magic casket. The secret will not open - see the play. separate applause for Waterman - philosophical overtones, a funny walk and playing the saxophone - bravo. Princess Fun-above all praise. Wonderful voice, beautiful appearance of this fairy princess, lively character, and enthusiasm. The biggest changes have undergone from the cartoon image of Ivan, and for the better. This is no longer stupid Vanya, who was lucky, but an energetic, clever, brave, quick-witted man who keeps his word, even if he gave it without thinking. No wonder the frogs so gently call him KWN. I really liked the scenes where Russian guys do rap. As you might guess, at home after the performance a concert of their home rappers was waiting for us. The new characters turned out to be incredibly funny and unexpected: a gorgeous bear and wonder-frogs. And, as always noted, and never stop talking about it in the Teatrium magnificent organization. Comfortable spacious lobby, where the intermission was very interesting animation about the Theater of Shadows, and after the performance - the Actors came out to take pictures with the audience. On the sides of the stage are screens where not only the details are visible, but also tell about the actors involved in the play, and also show advertisements for other children's performances. I especially want to note that in the lobby you can buy Flowers of different price categories. And at the end of the performance, young theatergoers went up to the stage and PERSONALLY gave bouquets to favorite actors. At the same time, security (there is an orchestra pit and steps) was very carefully and professionally monitored by administrators. We are regular visitors and fans of this theater, we also recommend you. With such a performance, you can safely begin to inculcate in the child a love for theatrical art.
We went with my son for 3.5 years. This was his first visit to the theater. My son was very afraid, but with the start of the play I was so carried away that I laughed, I repeated something). Small, cozy room. The performance is 50 minutes, two artists, but they keep children's attention throughout the entire performance. I liked it very much. The son always remembers and wants to go to this theater)
The play is more a legend than a fairy tale. But the more interesting! Great setting, beautiful costumes and scenery. And all this against the backdrop of wonderful music! The play was liked by all members of the family. And he, certainly, not for small,
