The birthday of Alexander Pushkin was celebrated by compatriots living in Malaysia. They prepared a play based on one of the most famous works of the great poet - The Tale of Tsar Saltan. Due to restrictions against the spread of coronavirus infection, the play was screened on Zoom.
The play was put on stage by the International Association of Russian-speaking Compatriots in Malaysia and the Rossotrudnichestvo representative office in Kuala Lumpur. Pupils of the school operating at the embassy of the Russian Federation took to the stage.
Young actors approached this unusual production very responsibly and creatively, perfectly learned their lines, and created unusual online costumes using computer programs.
Among the spectators were compatriots not only from Malaysia, but also from Morocco, Palestine and Jordan. An unusual performance became a real holiday of the Russian Language Day for children and adults.
