Fairy tale in 2 acts
The story opens a seaside palace of the beautiful Tsar - Maiden and her birthday day. That day many uninvited guests came there: the Chinese Imperator, the Greek King Odyssey, the knight arrant of Biribi and other heroes.
This story is the first that had been published in Russia for the puppet Theatre. It was written in 1837 and never staged before.
A prominent Russian writer Vladimir Odoevsky published this story specially for the puppet theatre. He became known as the "Russian Faus".
Odoevsky wrote a story – puzzle for children. He made a muddle of the heroes, periods, costumes absolutely intentionally. Viewers have a chance to be involved into the puppet story about Tsar Maiden and to take part in it and unriddle all the puppet rebuses.
