About event

Why should go to the opera-tale "Emerald City"?

1. The performance will be interesting to the whole family.
2. Get to know the music classics.

It was the American writer Lyman Frank Baum who invented the story of a girl who fell into the Magic Country. His work "The Amazing Wizard of Oz" fell in love with the children of the whole world.

There are several versions of the story, why Alexander Volkov created a new version of the story. One by one - he just wanted to practice English. According to another, his children, Vivian and Romuald, really wanted to read an interesting book from his father's study, but did not know the language. In any case, it is important for us that Volkov took up the translation of an amazing fairy tale.

The translation turned into a paraphrase, and then into a cycle of individual works. Dorothy became Ellie, the country of Oz - the Fairyland, the main character is not an orphan, but lived with her mom and dad, and Ellie, from the pen of Volkov, came out more well-read and educated. First, in 1939, and then with considerable processing in 1959, the “Wizard of the Emerald City” is published. The book was so popular that, due to numerous requests from little readers, Volkov writes five more sequels.

The performance “The Emerald City” is not only a journey through the Magic Country, but also an acquaintance of young listeners with a classical opera. Ellie, The Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Totoshka, Lev and the rest will tell the children about the works of famous composers. The production will include music by Giuseppe Verdi, Georges Bizet, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Gioacchino Rossini, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Pietro Mascagni, Gaetano Donizetti, Giovanni Paisiello, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Engelbert Humperdink ...

The duration of the performance is 2 hours (there is an interval).
