Kyiv, Ivan Franko Theater. Director – Serhiy Smiyan, artist Fedir Nirod, composer - Yuriy Znatokov. The author of the play - Lesya Ukrainka. The basis for the creation of a dramatic poem by Lesya Ukrainka was the story of the heroine of ancient mythology Cassandra. According to the plot, the war lasted almost 10 years, Troy was under siege. Only Princess Cassandra, thanks to her gift of providence, received from the god Apollo, would be able to stop the bloodshed. However, she despised his affection. And Apollo took vengeance fiercely: he did so that no one believed her prophecies, and that she was considered guilty of all troubles. Cassandra speaks only the truth, no matter how bitter it may be, but her brother Helen (actors B. Stavytsky, A. Skibenko) tells the truth only if it is pleasant for people. As a subtle psychologist, he had an impact on the crowd.
