The Day of Family, Love and Fidelity, which is celebrated in Russia on July 8, is best spent with the family, of course!
The Big Tours Online project has collected ten performances of Moscow and regional theaters that will appeal to both children and adults.
The stage productions on this list are dedicated to love, fidelity and goodness, as well as imbued with an atmosphere of understanding and mutual assistance. After all, this is the main thing that the family gives to each of us. Records of stage productions are in the public domain. The audience will also see the premiere: the first online tour of the Obraztsov Puppet Theater Museum, which houses theater puppets from around the world from the ancient era to the present.
