2004 year (18–20th of June)

VІ International theatre festival «Melpomene of Tavria»

The Minister of culture of Ukraine Yurii Bohutskyi greets the festival and emphasizes that the festival has become important and integral part of independent Ukraine cultural life. Taurida steppes are the corner of heaven, which hosts the dream and the theatre’s residence covered with sunny aura.

The festival participants enjoyed local delicacies such as cherries, fish, crawfish, fish soup, kebab and even watermelons.

During six years of festival existence our guests theatres experienced not only storm of applauses but also spent time on the banks of our River Dnipro, breathed sea air of the Southern Ukraine, walked through the parks of Askania-Nova, enjoyed lilies of Kherson lakes, rode the horses. And all this was possible in spite of busy schedule of festival performances.
