An unorthodox circus show staged by a Golden Mask-winning director retells "The Nutcracker" with high-tech special effects and rock music. By Anna Malpas for The Moscow Times

Posters around Moscow featuring a red-haired girl and the mysterious word "Krakatuk" have been intriguing passersby for some time. Next week, they'll get a chance to find out what it's all about -- as long as 1,500 seats are delivered in time.

Based on a darkly fantastic story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, "Krakatuk" is a theatrical show that combines high-tech special effects, circus numbers and music by a founder of the rock band Leningrad. Since opening two years ago in St. Petersburg, it has toured in France, Ukraine and the Russian provinces, but it has never played before in Moscow, where it is set to premiere next week.

From the Moscow Times article:

The director worked with a team of artists and musicians including Igor Vdovin, a founding member of Leningrad, and Oleg Gitarkin of the lounge band Nozh Dlya Frau Muller. Their music for the show is a modern interpretation of works by Tchaikovsky. It appeals to children, who aren't "burdened down with complexes," Moguchy said.

Does this imply that you're more likely to appreciate Tchaikovsky's music in its original form if you're burdened down with complexes??
