Obraztsov Puppet Theater performed in Berlin with The Princess and the Pea, or Five Endless Nights play. The performance, which took place on the stage of Russian House of Science and Culture, was included in the program of Russian Seasons.

The play is based on the tale of Andersen. The Director is Yevgeniy Gimmelfarb from Ukraine. The plot unfolds over five nights in the castle of the king. The actors draw the audience into the action, and the familiar tale turns into a vivid event, memorable for a long time. 

The Princess and the Pea by Obraztsov Theater is popular with viewers in our country and abroad. After the performance is complete, Russian actors invite children to a master class. 

The audience gets acquainted with the basics of working with dolls there. 

Obraztsov Puppet Theater is Russia's largest center of playing dolls. It puts on stage performances that become masterpieces. Directors and actors synthesize genres and techniques, creating spectacular performances for children and adults. The repertoire of the theater includes such famous fairy tales as Foolish Emilyan and the Talking Fish, King Stag, Aladdin and His Magic Lamp, Don Juan, Divine Comedy and others.
