Main director:

Elena Treshchinskaya

In the theater “One man and 200 dolls” only one artist. The puppeteer Elena Treschinskaya does not hide behind the screen, singing for her dolls monologues, songs, arias and dances.

The repertoire of the theater has six children’s and two adult performances. The performances for children are designed for the public at the age of 5 years. Young spectators are pleased with the unusual interpretations of famous fairy tales: the story of Cinderella moved to the Italian quarter of Venice, and several stories of the Brothers Grimm merged into one. The play “The Wedding of the King Sun” combines the French manners of the 18th century and traditionally the Russian carnival with Petrushka. “Fairy tales in English” on the subjects of British TV-men Donald Bisset and Spike Milligan will introduce the children to the music of post-war London. And the performance “Dolls from a suitcase” is a bright concert show with opera and funny tricks.

Monospectacles of the theater are diverse in genres: there are romantic, dramatic and philosophical stories. The founder of the theater, Elena Treschinskaya, also does not forget about the adults: for them there are the plays “A doctor involuntarily or French parsley” based on the play by Moliere and “Letters of Fools to the Lord God.”
