Cherry Town, Moscow
Block by block, a new way of life is assembled
Old Moscow is left behind when a new high-rise housing development springs up, promising a motely crew of friends and acquaintances suffering from the city’s housing shortage a bright, new future. But all is not as it seems.
Torn between their desire for the latest appliances and their love of old Moscow, relationships are tested, and corruption is uncovered. Based on real life events of the post-Stalin era, this surprisingly light-hearted musical comedy, performed by the award winning WNO Youth Opera, brings you lively choruses, snappy songs and ensembles and a succession of easy-going waltzes and polkas infused with jazz influences, in a highly entertaining piece that will leave you questioning reality forever.
Performances dedicated to the memory of David and Philippa Seligman
