A modern version of the classic play, which was published in 1945, was restored in style, close to the audience of the digital era. The visiting card of the production was a successful combination of good ballet antiquity and modern stage technologies. Visual computer effects coexist peacefully with traditional costumes and props. Rostislav Zakharov, whose 110th birthday is dedicated to the premiere, called his production "a song about the spring of human life, about youth, about happiness, about a dream." Mikhail Messerer, while working on the reconstruction, followed the mood set by the author of the ballet.
