Director Statement

“The Magic Song of the Carol of the Bells is a truly magical song. Anyone can sing the Ukrainian folk chants, arranged by Mykola Leontovich, and the effect will be the same - a festive mood, a fairy tale and energy that can make good dreams come true. A celebrity team of performers of our Magic Song show that they are still children inside and this once again shows that any man was created in the world of love and for the love of the world.”
