An Unusual Concert Wikipedia
An Unusual Concert (1946) (Russian: Необыкновенный концерт, Neobyknovennyj Kontsert) is one of Sergey Obraztsov's best known puppet shows. It is considered a masterpiece of puppeteering and satirizes bad performers. It appeals both to children and adults.
According to Obraztsov, An Unusual Concert is a theatrical revue or variety show that does not satirize specific genres so much as performers that spoil these genres with their poor performances and poor taste. An Unusual Concert is one of the best-known puppet performances of the 20th century. It premiered in 1946 and has been performed over 10,000 times all around the world.
The show demonstrates rather complicated puppeteering techniques. For example, there is a dancing couple whose tango movements require the skill of seven puppeteers.
