Classic Russian tale comes to Washington

July 31, 2013 by  

On show next month, ‘The Falcon and The Masque of Beauty and the Beast’ is a production that forms part of the Studio East’s Young Performers Series and highlights one of Russia’s most loved children’s stories. Poster printing, postcard printing, banner printing, and flyer printing may have been used to advertise this popular story to people in this community and the area surrounding the town.

In this story, Anna is destined to marry a man named Tevdore, who is a farm worker living next door. At the engagement party, however, a storyteller arrives who offers Anna little peaks into another world that is more enchanting.

In this world, Anna owns a golden falcon’s feather that possesses magic powers to turn the Fenist into a handsome price. Finally, the real Anna must make a decision the security that Tevdore offers and the adventure that is offered by the Fenist, who offers moonlight in a gentle misty veil. Narrated by a trio of masked gargoyles and lasting for approximately one hour, this is a stylized version of a classic story suitable for people aged seven and over.

Tickets for this production are $14 per adult and $12 for youth under 12 and seniors. The performance will take place on Friday, August 9, and Saturday, August 10 at 7:30 pm at Studio East located in Kirkland, Washington, just down the road from Woodinville.
