The Lucky Soldier, THOC 018

And they asked themselves: Where do people go when they leave?

Remaining firm on its tradition of presenting on stage masterpieces of literature, Cyprus Theatre Organisation presents to children and young audience the Russian folk tale The Lucky Soldier.

The new production of Skini 018 is drawn from the great literature of Russian writers, who, with an ultimate respect on children’s psyche and perception, gave an excellent literary material for creation and cultivation. All of the things that talk about the truths of life, happiness, failure, knowledge, love, coexistence, wealth and poverty, beginning and end of life, synthesized the materials of the unique story of the Lucky Soldier, which speaks allegorically about the circle of human life.

Is there a better way to prepare your child for the big questions of life than poetry, literature and theatre? Xenia Kalogeropoulou, this great woman of Greek theatre who has been marking the Children’s Theatre in Greece for decades, knows very well the answer. With her collaborator, a distinguished director Thomas Moschopoulos, they transformed the fairy tale of the Lucky Soldier to a deep and imaginative play for children and adults. During the performance, the poetry of the play is highlighted through the special look of the director and primary school teacher, Georgia Mavragani, which uses the primary elements of drama games and reveals them to children. Companions to this adventure are six talented actors, who tell artfully the charming and full of meanings story.
