Director Andrey Moguchy together with Konstantin Filippov created a modern fairy tale after the motives of stories of the Belgian dramatist Maurice Maeterlinck. The famous Maeterlincks theme of a childrens trip to the Kingdom of the Night in a quest for the Blue Bird found its new modern implementation in this Andrey Moguchys performance. This is an attempt to talk to the children with the help of the theater about the basics of the creation, the life and death, the right and wrong, and the true and virtual fortune. In the performance, the world is seen through the eyes of a child: this is a world of childs dreams, fantasies and hopes. Artist Alexander Shishkin created the stage design and costumes in the esthetics of a childs painting, where all the characters as if had been drawn by a childs hand. The action is taking place on New Year eve in a lovely play dough family, where there are Brother Tiltil and Sister Mitil, a Father, a Grandfather, two green Dogs, a red Cat and, of course, a Mother who is pregnant with a new Baby. But suddenly a bird flown into the window destroyed this holiday idyllic scene. The mother felt unwell and was taken to hospital. A neighbor, Freken Light is staying with the children. To save the Mother and the still unborn Baby, Tiltil and Mitil have to undertake a dangerous trip to the Kingdom of Dead and save the Blue Bird from the Queen of the Night. Practically the entire troupe of the theater including musicians is engaged in this performance.

The performance is meant for elementary and secondary school students at the age from 9 to 12. However, it will be interesting for the adult audience as well: the themes touched in the performance are actual at any age.
