Olga Shaydullina & Stanislav Vdovin joined their creative forces again to make a soundtrack for the classic silent Shen Nu (Goddess) by Yonggang Wu (1934). Limitation of improvisation with timing & story came to fruition: the record sounds more focused than the previous album, Magic Carpet, and not so formally as the duo's debut—et_cetera. However, after further editing one can't treat this album as a full soundtrack—rather, it's a long trailer for the film, or, better yet, an independent work. The title Magic Theatre, taken from Hesse, just emphasizes that we prefer the latter, even if you omit the fact that the performance took place in a Moscow theater.
