Don Quixote

This puppet musical suite is inspired by the second volume of Don Quixote. Separate scenes are held together by a refrain - a tauromachy scene, which becomes a metaphor for the imminence of doom. Victor Plotnikov, once the artist-designer of the famous «Snow Show» by Slava Polunin, does not narrates the plot, but rather applies to our cultural code, in which are embedded the eternal themes making go round the great novel: war, love, faith, the nature of creativity, flowering youth, already fraught with impending senility, knighthood converting into madness, a flight of fantasy drifting into the sleep of reason. Visual and music language makes it apprehensible even without translation. The performance - nominee of the main Russian theater award «Golden Mask».
