Revived Nativity play and lively "Tsimboryky"
This year, in Khust a wonderful tradition - the festival of Nativity plays - was revived. Children from all local schools were invited to participate since, according to the head of the Department of Culture, Youth and Sports of Khust City Council Volodymyr Vlasyk, the city has 11 schools, many kindergartens, high schools, colleges, a university. This year 10 teams and more than 116 participants took part in the festival.The motto was taken from the famous carol, "And the third holiday is the feast of Epiphany," and therefore the event was timed to coincide with the last holiday of the Christmas cycle.
It was decided to hold the festival in the House of Culture, and not near the Christmas tree, so the kids were able to change clothes and perform in comfortable conditions. The children prepared for the holiday very well, dressed in traditional clothing, made nativity scenes. There were even some groups that used in their performances lighting design, illumination. And the school with Hungarian language of learning showed a theatrical production with good professional music.
The revvial of the festival is a good thing, because there are a lot of talented children's groups and artists in the city - both amateurs and professionals. It is worth, for example, to note the amateur children's "exemplary" folk group "Tsimboryky" (manager Natalia Shymsha) of the Department of Culture, Youth and Sports of Khust City Council, which in 2011 won second place at the Twelfth National Festival "Chervona Ruta".
That year, for the first time the festival program included the genre of Ukrainian authentic folklore. Among the best performers from all over Ukraine at the festival, the winners of the Transcarpathian regional qualifying competition "Chervona Ruta" in the genre of Ukrainian authentic folklore - "Tsimboryky" - won the second place. The original authentic music of our region caused a keen delight in the audience. Also everyone was impressed with Transcarpathian folk clothing: the spectators willingly took pictures with the performers.
