Omsk State Puppet Theatre "Harlequin"

The Omsk Puppet Theatre was founded in April 1936. In 1937 it started to perform on tours. Though the newly opened theatre had only 6 actors, soon the children of Omsk saw the theatre's first performance, "Kashtanka". Further development of the theatre was due to the young director Boris Salamchev whose persistent experimentation and findings made "Harlequin" known both in Russia and abroad and brought it the reputation of an experimentalist theatre. Since the 1990s "Harlequin" in Omsk is one of the leading puppet theatres in Russia. The peculiarity of its performances is their multilayer character: a seemingly simple plot reveals a deep philosophic sense.
