The Dragon

 

| Open Player in New Window

This performance is a dramatic parable on Vladimir Putin and Putin’s Russia.

Organized and produced by UO students, the play, which is based on Yevgenii Shvarts’s cult drama “The Dragon” will be performed in both Russian and English.

In the play, the character Put-in, a three-headed, oil-drinking dragon, is venerated by the city he inhabits because he protects it from other dragons. Each year, a girl is sent to his palace, and afterward no one hears from her again. The annual event is marked by a celebration involving the girl, her family, and the general populace.

However, one day a knight-errant named Lancelot arrives in the city. A descendant of King Arthur’s knight and a distant relative of St. George, Lancelot falls in love with the “celebrated” girl, a teenage gymnast, and challenges the dragon.
