The creators of the play "Emerald City" invite young listeners on a journey through the Magic Land of classical opera. The heroes of the production - Ellie, Totoshka, The Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Leo and others - will acquaint the children with the works of famous composers.
The story of a girl who fell into the Magic Country was invented by the American writer Leiman Frank Baum. His fairy tale, so loved by children, is called “The Amazing Wizard of Oz.” Once she was on the shelf of a bookcase in a Moscow apartment. Two boys - Romuald and Vivian - often looked into the office of his father in search of new interesting books. They really wanted to read the story of the wizard from Oz, but they could not - it was written in English.
Then their father, Alexander Volkov, decided to translate this amazing story. But under his pen the girl Dorothy gradually turned into Ellie, and the country of Oz into the Magic Country. Thus, a new fairy tale “The Wizard of the Emerald City” was born.
