The musical "The Deer King" takes us back to the famous fairy tale by Carlo Gozzi and the eponymous film of the 70s with the unforgettable music by Mikael Tariverdiev.
Our version of the musical "The Deer King" is "a new story in the old way", in which music from the film and other compositions of the composer sounds. The time and genre of the theatrical musical brought their ideas into this story. But, as before, as in Italian comedy, actors who play wizards and small clowns-zannies, kings and villains are masks, prototypes of people's characters, quite recognizable. Their sorcerous transformations whimsically mix imaginary and reality. And love - it's in a fairy tale, and in life - just love. Although, as the song from the musical says, "it's a secret for the guys." We will try to disclose this secret for you.
