Residents of the region will be able to watch the performance for free; invitation tickets can be picked up at the box office of the Palace of Culture.
How reported on the website of the Ethnocultural Center of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the performance consists of several fairy-tale short stories about the legends of deep antiquity, about the life of the polar tundra and its people.
From the story “Harna Yala,” viewers will learn how the Beautiful Crow overcame the seven layers of the Polar Night and gave people hope for a new sunny day. “Sack of Syudbya” (“Sack is a Giant”) will introduce guests to Nenets views on the desire for wealth. The rituals “Sambdava” (“Healing the sick by a shaman”) and “Tyuntava” (“Wedding”) tell stories that have always accompanied human life in the tundra.
— Tickets are free, but there are not many of them, since the hall is small, only for 31 people. “Tundra Legends” is the first performance in this new creative season,” explained Elena Vergunova, director of the Ethnocultural Center of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
As we wrote earlier, residents of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug can become participants in the Ilebts Nenets People’s Theater.
