The genre of the play "VIY" is a musical, and the specifics of this large-scale production can be called the specifics of the blockbuster using the "cinema" terminology. Indeed, VIY is a kind of theatrical blockbuster with large-scale costumed scenes, dances, songs, very complex and spectacular tricks and special effects. Three nights in a sinister abandoned church, at the tomb of a witch, the main character of the performance, Home Brut, will have to defend, and each next night will be worse than the previous one...
But, as in Gogol’s novel, scary mystical scenes are interspersed with recklessly cheerful and cheerful sketches of Ukrainian life of a Cossack. And the unexpected ending of the performance will surprise even those who know Gogol’s story by heart... “VIY” is a spectacle with a capital letter that you should see!

The duration of the performance is 2 hours 30 minutes.
