Sergei Obraztsov International Puppet Theatre Festival

Festival 2021 “Anniversary among friends” September 16 – 22

The XI International Festival of Puppet Theatres named after S.V. Obraztsov is dedicated to the 120th anniversary of the Master and the 90th anniversary of our theatre. This is a special festival for us. We called it “Anniversary among Friends” and invited our dear colleagues, like-minded people, puppeteers from different parts of Russia and the world to share this theatrical holiday with us. The program includes a variety of performances — of state and independent groups, traditional and experimental, awarded and not  just yet, but most importantly, each of them is a theatrical miracle that we would like to share with the audience.
In our difficult times, we want to give each other the joy of live creative communication. And we are pleased to invite you to join our theatrical adventure!
