The opening of the performance “Illusions of the Old City” took place on the 2nd of July, at 14.00 in the place of Petrozavodsk historical building around Neglinskaya quay and Fedosova street at the house of the forest warden of Mr. Kuchevsky (Neglinskaya quay, 23).
For some hours the place turned into historical theater. Visitors plunged into atmosphere of an Old Russian provincial city, saw recognized symbolical scenes from the life of Petrozavodsk of 1911. City dances, a photographer's studio where it was possible to be photographed in an ancient dress, citizens in clothes of old time created the illusory world of the past. Our students also visited this performance and for sure it impressed them much! :)
