Story: The Red Poppy, written by Reinhold Glière and libretto by Mikhail Kurilko, became the first Soviet ballet and is considered a true masterpiece of Soviet ballet art. On porcelain, the author depicts the main characters - the beautiful Tao Hoa, her fiancé and the captain of the Soviet ship, the scene of action where the plot develops, and the decorative compositions associated with it.
Traditional Chinese patterns and a floral arrangement “bloomed” on the saucer. In it (as well as on Tao Hoa’s fan and in the bouquet in the captain’s hands) you can see a delicate bud of red poppy.
On the dessert plate, the author placed the scenery - the setting of a large port where the Soviet ship enters and where events subsequently develop. One of the interesting details on the plate is the sailors dancing the “Bullseye”. The artist emphasized the spectacular technique when an original dance appears in classical choreography.
“Red Poppy” was a continuation of a series of three-piece sets created based on the most significant, in the opinion of Lyubov Tsvetkova, Russian ballet performances.
