Thirteen shows of New Year's Adventures of Buratino play will be performed in the cities of Bavaria by the Munich Theater and Diligence concert association. The premiere has already taken place, the shows will last until January 5. The target audience of the plays are families, people of all ages will find something interesting for themselves, the website of the Association of Russian Theaters of Foreigners reports. 

New Year's Adventures of Buratino is a musical performance with colorful decorations and costumes. As in the tale of Alexei Tolstoy based on Collodi's The Adventures of Pinocchio, people and dolls became the main characters of the story. 

According to the author of the production, George Daudrich, the theater sought to capture the attention of not only children, but also adults, so that they could return to the magical world of childhood and fairy tales. The theater “buys” the attention of young spectators with interactivity - children can give the characters advice and pass on information that they don’t know. Father Frost and Snegurochka also meet the young viewers during the performance. 

Almost all of the remaining shows are sold out. It is assumed that the performance will be seen by at least one and a half thousand people.
