The surprising fairy tale of Alexey Nikolaevich Tolstoy who glanced in theatre "world behind the looking-glass" causes trembling in soul of many those who loves Theatre, serves it, comes to auditoriums, devotes it all the life.
Probably, for this reason there are a lot of versions, readings, interpretations of this well-known story for this reason life of the fairy tale about Buratino will be eternal as the dream of the person of happiness and of art which will help to turn the dream into reality at least for two hours of theatre time.
In this performance all dream of happiness – and Karabas-Barabas to whom the theatre is necessary as the breath of life – there and only there he can feel like Barabas.
And Father Carlo who does Theatre by the hands – planes theatre furniture, invents mechanisms, thinks out and spiritualizes dolls which will step then on the stage to the audience.
And Turtle Tortill who wasn't enough also three hundred years to reach this happiness.
And Buratino who revived (turned from a wooden doll into the person) only to fill, what it is such happiness – the Play? Role? Theatre? Tour?..
And dolls which dream of the magic theatre without Barabas to play only favourite roles and to sing only beautiful songs. This is the happiness!
The wise Father Carlo is right, probably, speaking: "Happiness with you! Look back! It is that Karabas looks for, you have very long time ago! Roles, scene, viewer, friendship… You also don't need magic buffoonery where everything is perfectly trusted and without your participation. What happiness in it?!". Really, as often in pursuit of the illusive purpose, we, at last open the treasured door … for which there is other door, and behind it one more, then it is necessary to open following … and so indefinitely, as if at us in a stock as at Tortilla, 300 years! In violent searches of the key and door we don't manage to look back round ourselves and to understand that life is so fine, but it is so short … "We are happy! Sometime we can't lift the head for fatigue. But day passes – we are on way again. We are happy! And whether you are happy?", – magic Lamplighters ask us.
