P.Abraham “Ball at the Savoy”
To be taken captive by his own deceit while conquering a famous singer- what can be more senseless for the fashion journalist Aristide Stanwood?! As he is the deceit master! However with the beauty Madeleine Tibo his agility disappears somewhere. Or maybe this is love? The frenzied cascade of funny adventures, imaginary betrayals and happy reconciliations …
“Ball at the Savoy” is one of the most dance operettas, where the waltz, tango, foxtrot, rumba and the main thing – the step dance dominate simultaneously. For the bright and spectacular stage colouring, as well as for the steppe to be well-audible to the spectators in the hall, the theater ordered a special coating of unbreakable colored glass with LEDs, one square meter of which can withstand 10 or more dancers at the same time. And for the fantastic parade of costumes a unique collection in the “Zodiac signs” is created at the ball.
The performance became the prizewinner of many Ukraine-wide and international contests and fests many times.
In journalists’ opinion, “Ball at the Savoy” is the high-quality performance for youth full of humour and passions.
The operetta is incredibly interesting, stylish, right, musical, dance and vocal. You are sitting, watching and feeling as if you are at a Broadway musical, but not in Kyiv.”
