Family Ballet Thumbelina in Moscow
February 23, 2019 09:06

The famous fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen has been reinterpreted here: you will find new characters and storylines in this innovative ballet for viewers of all ages. The choreographers of the Theater “Ballet Moscow” - Anastasia Kadruleva and Artem Ignatiev – have devised this kind and gentle performance specifically for their little daughter and her peers.
The whole stage is a little girl's dollhouse, in which the Thumbelina story unfolds. She sets off on a journey, encountering a mole, a spider, a swallow, mice, tadpoles and elves on her way. The events happening to Thumbelina reflect the inner world of the girl named Sonya, her childlike experiences and dreams, ideas of good and evil.

The family ballet Thumbelina is set to "The Seasons" music cycle composed by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and processed by the pioneer of Russian electronics Arkady Marto. Instrumental music intertwined with the sounds of nature has turned out even more fabulous.
The stage design for the performance was created by Petersburg artist Sergey Illarionov, the nominee of the National Theatre Award Golden Mask 2016.

His scale playing evokes associations with painting staffs – the images of characters’ little figures against the backdrop of majestic landscapes. The scenery comes to life thanks to the animation created by 7bios specifically for this ballet. The costumes are made in the style of Asian deconstruction and stand out with their shape unusual for a ballet.

The performance is perfect for the introduction of children into the art of ballet - even the smallest viewers will enjoy watching it. For parents and other adults, this ballet show will also be exciting thanks to its elaborate choreography as well as plot twists and turns that will definitely engage the attention of both children and adults.

The duration of the ballet is 1 hour 20 minutes with one intermission.
