Circus performance ” Our friend Baba Yaga»
In the Moscow circus on Vernadsky Avenue during the school holidays, an unusual performance took place. Children filled not only the auditorium, which is quite usual during school holidays, but this time they were also provided with a playpen, where they showed their performance “Our friend Baba Yaga”.
I, who grew up in a circus, remembered our now distant childhood, when we, imitating adults, also turned into acrobats, magicians, musicians and clowns. These were difficult war years, and we had to make costumes out of some rags, or even just from paper. And we showed our Amateur concerts somewhere in an abandoned corner of the yard.
And here the Directorate provided the children with the best circus in the country! Children of artists prepared a performance in two departments. Their audience was peers and friends invited from the circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard, as well as from the Musical children’s theater.
In the run-up to this performance, the young artists enthusiastically learned their roles and took special care with their seemingly familiar rehearsals. Therefore, the audience saw a real circus performance, where Baba Yaga (Zhenya milaev) and a novice artist Nikita (Arslan Aliyev) were also trainers of “exotic” animals. Snow maiden and Kitten (Katya and Yegor Bondarev) demonstrated an equestrian number, Blizzard (Angela Terrible) perfectly performed a plastic sketch, and Red riding Hood (Lina Kalischuk) — a scene on a monocycle. Father frost (Mitya Novozhilov) managed to show himself a capable reader of feuilletons.
Little Vitya milaev, the new Year’s performer, welcomed both the audience and performers of the extraordinary performance, which ended with a large round dance, where eighty children participated!
I would like this initiative of the new Moscow circus to become a tradition, so that one day every year our happy children would fill the auditorium and the arena.
