About the event

To buy tickets

Christmas puppet theater with spiritual poems, carols and games.

The Nativity scene is the cave where the baby Christ was born. A special puppet box was also called a nativity scene, in which puppet action was played out. This is one of the earliest folk puppet shows that have come down to us thanks to ethnographic records of the 18th-19th centuries.

This performance is shown to everyone: both adults and children. The action is accompanied by the singing of Old Believer spiritual verses and traditional poetic text.

The second integral part of the Nativity scene was a cheerful performance, in which satirical notes about everyday life in the village also slipped through. This is how the short performances "The Greedy Hostess" and "The Gingerbread Story" were born.
