RONNY and BIRK, MUSICAL DRAMA in TWO ACTS, BASED on ASTRID LINDGREN (in Russian) (Libretto By Semen Lungin, poetry by Alexander Gorodnitsky) for drama actors and piano

It is a deeply metaphorical story, on the one hand, funny and sad on the other. Unlike an almost Shakespearean plot, this is not a tragedy, but a bright and kind fairy tale. It tells about love and friendship; it is full unexpected adventures and has funny characters. The children of the two warring gangs, Ronny and Birk, unlike Montague and Capulets, do not die, but, on the contrary, constantly save each other.
