The Blue Bird

A trilogy

Stanislavsky ElectroTheatre

Blue Bird. Journey

In Part One Tyltyl and Mityl set out on their quest. Vladimir Korenev and Aleftina Konstantinova recall their childhood during the war, their parents, the making of the legendary film Amphibian Man, and their colleagues at the old Stanislavsky Theatre.

Blue Bird. Night

In Part Two Tyltyl and Mytyl find themselves in the Palace of Night. Vladimir Korenev and Aleftina Konstantinova reminisce about their marriage, Korenev’s fans, The Seagull at the Moscow Art Theatre, and the coup of 1991.

Blue Bird. Bliss

Tyltyl turns up in the Garden of Delights, but of all the Delights he most appreciates the warmth of the Home Hearth, where Mytyl awaits him. Korenev remembers touring to Ivanovo, where he nearly fell victim to a harem of seamstresses.
