Meet the most truthful person in the world — the very same Baron Munchausen! His incredible puppet adventures take place at the North Pole, St. Petersburg and overseas countries!
The stage designer Sergei Alimov and the director Yekaterina Obraztsova had to come up with many interesting ideas in order to embody the fantastic adventures of the most famous baron on the stage of the puppet theater.The main character is represented not by one, but by several puppets! The largest is one and a half meters tall. His arms and legs are on hinges and move «as if alive». Three other Barons Munchausen are made as rod puppets: one walks through the snowfields, the other one dances at court balls, and the third prances on a horse and rides a wild boar! In the final scene, our puppet baron bravely rides a cannonball and flies to the moon!
