Director: Vlastimil Peška
Stage production: Irena Marečková
Incidental music: David Rotter
Premiering in September 2015
In this production you will find all the key figures of Russian folklore fairytales. Of course, Baba Jaga with her hut on chicken’s feet, Mášenka – Ivánek’s bride, Kostěj the Immortal, Vasilis the rat, robbers, but in particular the smart and cheerful Petruška, the hero of the folklore fairytales and fairground performances (slightly reminiscent of our Kašpárek…). The fairytale begins at the wedding of Ivánek and Mášenka, when Baba Jaga flies in and takes Ivánek away with her. Mášenka sets out to rescue him and on the way is accompanied by Petruška. There then follows a series of exciting and entertaining stories – with robbers, Baba Jaga, who Ivánek must serve, and Kostěj the Immortal, who in turn enchants Mášenka and takes her to his castle, because he wants to marry her. – And how does this fairytale comedy, full of fantasy end? Happily of course, like in any good fairytale.
