The Desperate Dreamers
April 14, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm€7 – €15
The performance was staged by the renowned Kaluga Regional Drama Theater, which is the same age as Alexander Pushkin and, in 242 years of its existence, has preserved and enhanced the best traditions of Russian theatre art.
The play was created on the premise of the novel “Outside the Earth” by the outstanding Russian scientist and inventor, the founder of theoretical cosmonautics, K. Tsiolkovsky.
The story of the novel says that between the highest picks of the Himalayas is a beautiful castle is hidden- the dwelling of people. Several scientists, philosophers, researchers and inventors have recently settled in it. Disappointment in people and also the joys of life drove the heroes into solitude and united into a fraternal hermit family.
What do these highly intelligent hermits dream about? of course, how to make people fly into space. Four scientists, fanatically devoted to science, are developing an ambitious 1st space travel plan. They make calculations, design and build a spacecraft, and then, taking with them 2 curious girls, start from the earth.
The spectator can witness a takeoff with heavy overloads and astronauts hovering in zero gravity. Then there’ll be a construction of a greenhouse and consumption of space grown cucumbers and apples, spacewalks and even landing on the moon. and all this – with spectacular special effects, bright costumes and sparkling fun. Desperate dreamers … but their dreams must come true!
