Youth Reviews on “Fairy-Tales by the Fire”

Here are several extracts from the children’s reviews on the show Fairy-Tales by the Fire.

Agata Logvin, 13 years old (OUK Theatre Student)

(…) “I think overall, the main idea in both fairy-tales presented in “Fairy-Tales by the Fire” was the element of finding happiness and being different. These themes were addressed effectively by reading between the lines and understanding the main ideas as symbolism. (…)

The actors played their roles very well. Each role which was distributed to someone was different and had its own magic in it. The same actress, who played the affectionate and beautiful Pereli, Anastasia Iskhakova, played the curious and interesting Little Gnome. You should see how she made each role she played believable, by changing her personality and ways of acting, so that it corresponds to her character. (…)

All the elements on stage were perfect. There was not much decorations, but it still set the atmosphere of a magical forest by having a couple of interesting and cool set pieces and lighting changes from scene to scene. The Costume Designer, Anna Shestakova, did a fantastic job. Each character had an individual outfit and a nice touch of make-up. (…)

I would recommend this play to wise and music-enjoying audiences. (…)

I, personally, enjoyed this play very much and I loved everything about it. I suggest that everyone should see this play and be ready for more magical and great creations!”
Alexei Tipenko, 13 years old (OUK Theatre Student)

“Do you want to go to a magical fairy-tale play with great actors, astonishing music, and beautiful costumes? Well, “Fairy-Tales by the Fire” will be a great spectacle to see for you and your kids! (…)

The music played a huge role in this performance because it helped to show the emotions of the play. I think that the music in this play was very effective because there were no recorded songs. Everything was real. Dmitri Ogai and Anna Bakseeva were both the composers and the musicians of the play and brought life to the stage.(…)

If you want to see a professional yet magical play, than this will be your entertainment!”
Nina Logvin, 9 years old (OUK Theatre Student)

“Catch this emerald!”(…) The main idea of both of the stories is to believe in magic”
