Russian Video: Pictures at an Exhibition (Soviet Musical Cartoon)!


Today we are watching a very beautiful Russian musical cartoon: “Pictures at an Exhibition”(Картинки с выставки), 1984. This cartoon is good to watch for little kids, their parents and grandparents. So we’ll watch:

The cartoon based on Mussorgsky two classic themes from “Pictures at an Exhibition” (1874):

1) “Избушка на курьих ножках” (Баба-Яга) [Izbushka na kur’ikh nozhkakh (Baba-Yaga)] (Russian: The Hut on Hen’s Legs (Baba-Yaga));
2) “Балет невылупившихся птенцов” [Balet nevylupivshikhsya ptentsov] (Russian: Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks).

Piano player Sviatoslav Richter.

The cartoon is directed by Inessa Kovalevskaya, we already watched another directed by her cartoon At the Port.

Best wishes,
