Theatre of Nations, ''Pushkin's Fairy Tales''

Moscow

The curtain of the show was made of black FMB - Macbeth 400, realized with Flat making (configuration 1AP+F), size 13,6 x 8 m.The curtain was decorated with the application of QGL - Glitter that reconstructed the effect of the fabric MPD - Pelle di Diavolo directly on the velvet.This technique was used for the title ''Сказки Пушкина'' and for the sun.The rays of the sun and the sea were realized instead through the application on the velvet of sequins.The marionette, the small boat and the clouds are mobile realizations, they are independent from the curtain and they have been coated with the fabric MPD - Pelle di Diavolo of several colors.The small boat flowed slowly along the sea thanks to a manual track mechanism that was integrated in the curtain.The clouds went slowly across the stage suspended with thin black cables.
