The Konotop witch is the voice of modern Ukraine, which is fighting the darkness for its existence. This is a modern story about the strength of the Ukrainian spirit and its indomitability. To the spirit that is filled with the light of truth and sounds loudly today through the ages in a single desire to live, create, win! – says Yevhen Nyschuk, general director and artistic director of the Ivan Franko National Theater.
