Eternal Song returns

Minsk’s Puppet Theatre stages Eternal Song, inspired by Belarusian literary classic Yanka Kupala’s poem of same title

By Alexey Vladimirov

The performance has won a Grand Prix at the International Belaya Vezha Theatre Festival, as well as a prize for best stage direction at the International Puppet Festival in Zagreb. Moreover, it has taken part in numerous festivals in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Russia. However, until recently, Minsk had hardly had the chance to see it.

Initially, Kupala’s classical poem was adapted for small performances, with no suitable platform for its wider performance. Now, the Eternal Song, staged by Alexey Lelyavsky and Irina Yurieva, has been adjusted to the big stage, available to everyone. Dedicated to our wonderful land and its residents, their joys and sorrows, it explores Belarus in its true colours.
