Vasko the Patch And His First Attempts At The Theatre
the Patch - our favourite singer from the "blue"
demonstrations - is now very unexpectedly making his mark
as a song-writer for the children's performance "A Suitcase
Full Of Nonsense" at the Youth Theatre. The Premiere
is today at 5 p.m. Nikolai Poliakov, who is the director,
for the first time in Bulgaria puts on stage a children's
tale from Lyudmila Petrushevska, who is a leading dramatist
in Russia, and she has been living in forced silence for decades.
"Why did the bard from the street write music for the
I can't write music... But I feel deep respect for the theatre.
That's why I made up my mind to make a few songs for this
children's comedy, written by the famous Russian dissident.
I like "The Blue Ballad" the best, because I have
often felt down-and-out in life too."
"Are your children coming with you to the performance?"
"Bobby is still a baby, but Vasilena is four and she
can enjoy it. I'll be glad if all the children come - and
if they come with their moms and dads! And I invite everybody
who loves blues, because that's my music. Long live children,
flowers and blues!"
