Full description
Do you know who the cossacks are? This nation has played an important role in Russian history - originally from the South-East of the country, they have become a special military class in the Russian army. This said, cossacks had an immense impact on Russian culture as well because they have truly energizing and unique customs for this region.

In the beginning of the show, Cossacks present the usual life of a democratic community, which is used to idealising freedom and resistance to external troubles. However, the show seems to be less formal when the Cossacks start to interact with the audience: you can dance and sing together with the actors themselves! It doesn’t matter whether you know Russian or not - the energy of the dancers and singers is multilingual.

The show’s duration is nearly 2 hours, the time also includes an intermission for an optional buffet. Therefore, the actual show length is around 90 minutes.
Seats are unassigned, so feel free to seat wherever you want.
The buffet (as an extra option) includes two dishes and sparkling wine, with traditional Russian caviar complement.
