The musical “For Two Hares” from the National Operetta is an unexpected, new, creative reading of the well-known Russian comedy based on the play by M. Staritsky.
Love or money? Poor beauty or arrogant rich man? And what to do with debt? A profitable marriage will fix things, and the silly Pronya begs itself. But just who asked the liar Golokhvostogo so impudently and impudently to look after another - beautiful, kind and in love with another Galya? After all, who wants to catch two birds with one stone ... will certainly make the National Operetta laugh to tears.
To amaze and surprise the audience, the theater took decisive steps: they modernized the text of the play, reinforced the musical score of the play with 15 arrangements, put on a hopak from the ballet “Gayane” by Aram Khachaturian, added the famous “Flight of the Bumblebee” by N. Rimsky-Korsakov, “included” The inner voice of the Naked Tail, awakening with the conscience of the main character and evaluating all his intentions.
After the premiere, the media wrote: “... if for the entertainment of the viewer it is necessary to put on the stage a caricature corps de ballet of Jewish creditors in Saturday clothes - please. Making the servant of Khimki imitate striptease with a mop - no problem! But the main thing is that the idea of a tasteless bourgeois life is made with a refined taste. "
The musical “For Two Hares” is rightfully one of the best works of the National Operetta, proof of this is the constant full house.
