2. The opportunity to meet again with your favorite characters, friends from school years
3. Comic and dramatic situations in which heroes fall into are taken from life itself.
The performance “Kaydashev Family” on the work of the same name by the classic of Ukrainian literature Ivan Nechui-Levitsky for many years occupies a significant place in the repertoire of Ukrainian theaters as a real pearl of Ukrainian dramatic heritage.
The comic and dramatic situations in which the heroes of the play fall into are taken from life itself. It is impossible not to laugh while watching the endless quarrels of Kaidasa. But along with laughter there are distinctly tragic accents, when petty domestic disputes turn into a meaningless war between native people. In this performance, saturated with vivid folk characters, vivid dialogues, folk customs and rites, laughter is heard through tears and vice versa.
You can, of course, view Kaidashe’s relationship as the life of an individual family, or you can look wider, and then you will see a vivid picture of some aspects of modern life. The main goal of our performance is to remind our viewers that swearing, quarrels, fights lead to spiritual impoverishment, disunity and destruction of a person, family, the whole country.
The dynamic stage action, full of vivid sketches of national life, songs and dances performed by a talented ensemble of artists, ballet and orchestra of the Chernigov Theater, delights the audience and the desire to meet again with the favorite characters of this impressive comedy performance.
