BALLAD ABOUT A SMALL TUGBOAT

Joseph Brodsky
Novgorod theatre for children and youth "Mali"

Description

It is a play-journey with a little “Tugboat” down to the river and time. He tells us an amazing tale about one day of his life. Along with the Tugboat we will go to the harbor and meet big ships; we will see his dreams about far lands; travelling along Neva we will see sites of St.Petersburg/Leningrad which was loved and esteemed by Joseph Brodsky (who created this beautiful ballad). Originally this ballad was published in “Koster” magazine as a child opus. We understand that the story of a little tugboat is about all of us.

“Big Ben, Fuji, Triumphal Arch; all painted by Oleg Zverev are well known by anybody. These are just visions behind the window where sits the eternal  symbol of sadness and loneliness – the Cat. At the front of the screen sits a sailor in the white dress coat telling us sadly and softly his story (Artist Igor Semonov). Andrei Danilov, with shining eyes, either sad, or joy of memories, he seems no less air than anything else. It looks like he painted by the same artist and stripped of crude, heavy body.”
