In a faraway land in Russia, the magician Vasilisa hid wine in his left sleeve and swans in his right. Then at the ballroom, he swayed his hands in dance and created a stream of wine where pearl white swans floated around in all their grandeur.
In all our hearts reside the magic of Vasilisa and others tucked away in the fantasy of fairy tales, a world that beckons us with the lure of untold possibilities. It is this world that the boy dreams of.
This dream runs through the family as an heirloom wrapped in hope, which allows him to envision and fantasize about a future where he is a magician himself. But the real world calls for material and economic stability and its lack thereof in the family directs his mother to shield him from such fantastic aspirations.
The boy, full of dreams and wander, leaves the barriers of the household one day to start a journey that will take him through life and reality. Here, Nature is his only companion and together they undertake the enterprise of walking through light and dark through fantasies and realities.
NABC 2023 presents “Mayajaal”, a musical in multimedia that will allow the viewers to ride the wave with our protagonist in the same boat and experience the magic of not just dreams and fantasies but also realities.
