Tea at the Palace
Thursday, December 26
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until Sunday, December 29, 2019
Rich in magical surprises and mechanical ingenuity, inventive puppetry and exuberant folk music, Tea at the Palace is a sumptuous retelling of two stories told in old Russia about justice, humanity and compassion. In the first, a peasant finds a samovar in his field, but when he uses it to make tea “just like the Tsar” he is charged with treason. In the second, the Tsar is introduced to a wise and intriguing peasant girl, which scandalizes the courtiers who plot to thwart their friendship. Full of riddles, rituals and humour this play is both relevant and enchanting.
For family audiences: enjoyed by all ages, 5 and up.
Shows December 26th through 29th.
