"Back in the USSR" 
a concert-performance of Soviet songs 

Soviet song was a real factory of people's optimism. In its world there has always been a good weather, the rain was falling only when the characters wanted it, and hapiness waited them at every turn. And, of course, all roads were opened to the young people! They simply had no one to interfere, because the villains sang rarely, they usually could be met in the stage talks.

Songs by Isaac Dunaevskiy, Vasily Solovyov-Sedoy, Nikita Bogoslovsky, Matthew Blanter, Boris Mokrousov, Tikhon Khrennikov, Yuri Milutin and Anatoly Lepin are performed in "Helikon-Opera"s production. The line from Paul McCartney's song is an epigraph.
