A unique exhibition of puppets dedicated to the 80-th anniversary of the Sergey Obraztsov State Academic Central Puppet Theater and 110-th anniversary of its founder Sergey Obraztsov is now on public display at Vorob’evy Gory station. The exhibition organized jointly by Moscow Metro and the Obraztsov Puppet Theater was opened on September 10, 2011.

The inauguration ceremony of the exhibition was attended by Deputy Head of Moscow Metro for HR Alexander Golovkin, art-director of the Obraztsov Puppet Theatre Boris Goldovsky, children from one of Moscow kindergartens, reporters and passengers.

Alexander Golovkin reminded the guests that it was the second time that Vorob’evy Gory station hosted an unusual exhibition. «The first exhibition was dedicated to Russian porcelain», he said. «The main task of Moscow metro is to provide safe, secure and comfortable passenger transportation. It’s also important for us that the passengers stay in good mood. For this reason, we implement a number of cultural projects – exhibitions and special trains help to make a positive impression on our passengers».

The art director of the Obraztsov Puppet Theatre said: «There is a street in Moscow called after Sergey Obraztsov’s father. He was a big specialist in rail transport and it’s remarkable that Moscow metro and the Obraztsov Puppet Theatre have found a new link».

After watching children’s performances and a puppet show, the guests could see the exhibition. The exhibits included 42 puppets from 9 most famous shows of the theatre, including «The Amazing Concert» featured in the Guinness Book of Records for touring around 90 countries and gathering the audience of over ten million people.
