a master? When will I learn to make such miracles? – Listen, it’s a tricky business, becoming master! When you have a job you love,
that is just half the battle. when you fall in love with the work,
then you become a master. Nothing a boy couldn’t easily
wait a long time for. How long hasn’t Nikita Carpenter
been sitting in your place ?! And look what a master he has become! – So much that Nikita has a house
that looks like a ginger bread one ! – I wish I had me an eagle like Nikita!
I would fly to Ozersk. So I could visit Natalia the beautiful lace artist. Oh, it’s is not given to man to be a bird! – Some men can though.
Men around the Czar. Yet, the czar himself always walks the earth! – Find a craftsman, that can outdo an eagle in the sky. – I could be such a craftsman! – Don’t be jealous!
You’re a master at what you do. Your songs are sung by the whole village.
Sing the one about Natalia. ” Where the red sun peeks down from the sky
into the wide expansion of the lakes,the wide lakes, Weaves the magic lace-maker Natalia
her enchanting patterns. Swift and light her hand, cheerful and
sharp-sighted her eyes, no wonder people say: “Natalia, our treasure Natalia!
In the world is no better lace then Ozersk!” Upon her maiden’s soul she made a vow,
she would be the sweetheart of just one, just one The one, who in a comparison of skills, could surpass her. So go and find him! Yes, where to find
such a good match for the fine lass? But still, in time it will come this wonderful wedding!” Hush up this singing, you!
It won’t let his lordship sleep! – I do not want to sleep.
I want to listen. Sing! But I say – shut up! – Sing! – Well! “Upon her maiden’s soul she made a vow,
she would be the sweetheart of just one, just one The one, who in a comparison of skills, could surpass her.” – Mammy – What´s the matter, handsome?! To Natalia of Ozersk, I want to get married! What? You’re too young! Still a small babe.
It takes another 3 years, before you hit 20. – Uh-uh! – Oh! You kill me – unhappy poor man!
Haven’t you heard? Natalya will give herself only to who will
surpass her in skill. Whose wonder will surprise her. Get me this wonder I need to get her! Get it !!! – Hey! Guards! Guard !! Guards!!!
Bring the best masters here! Hurry! – Who here is the best master?
Who is the best? – I order you to create a wonder before springtime! We will gather them so we can marry our fiancee. – Those who please the boyard with their wonder
he will choose to thank. Who doesn’t will go to jail. – Understand, finishing before spring will be a tricky business!
Who should we please? Who is the bride, then? The Ozersk girl, Natalia. – Oh! – Oh! Is it really spring already!
Oh, on with this demanding job! Half a year has gone, and I haven’t even
half finished! Hurry up, Makar! Hurry up! – No! It’s inferior. Inferior! – The tail should be longer. -At home we will alter it once again! – Bring out your wonder! The deadline has come! – Bring it!! – Ha-ha-ha! Well yes it is a live duck! Look, handsome!
It is a gold plated living duck! – Uh-uh! – What? A living duck?! Take a closer look at her! – It’s suited! – Bring out your wonder!
Bring it! – Look! Another bird! – A big one! It’s not suited! What a miraculous bird! That is a wonder, such a wonder – Good! Very suitable! – Well, Ivan! Do not miss your fortune! – Your lordship will not become Natalya’s husband! – Ah! A conspiracy! In jail with the carpenter!
In irons with him! If Ivan does not return the bird –
we will execute Nikitka tomorrow evening!! “Towards the ground bows the oakwood,
in the forests fall silent the voices, yes, the voices Towards the sun the bird majestically soars through the skies. Flap the wing, my eagle fly to the sacred region
of all the miracles dear to me. There by the lakes rustle the woods,
there in the world lives Natalia, the maiden fair.” – Fair maiden, are you the one
honored by the name of Natalia – People call me Natalia. Please give me some water. – Drink! The Ozersk water is good. – Oh, Natalia! It’s like I’m in a dream,
to see you in reality ! You came here in the clothes of a bridegroom.
Do you know of my vow? I give myself only to the one whose
skillful hands are golden fingers next to mine. Look at my work! Show me yours! – About your work, I have heard a lot! – Heard heard,
it won’t harm to watch as well. – Marvelous! As if frost touched a tree! – Well, scared? Want to retreat? – Now I feel shy!
Why, of course… It would not be fine to boast in front of you.
But listen to my three-stringed! Goodness know!
I did not think there was such craftsmanship. You won me, dear Ivan. – Ah, Crane birds! It’s a dark forest
you fly to, over the large lakes. Catch up with my friend Ivan!
Tell him Nikita will be executed tomorrow! – Nikita! – Makar! – Listen, what shall we do? – Ivan must be told! But where to find him? One finds that
toward the skies my duck won’t fly. He’s in Ozersk! – So? In Ozersk he is, with Natalia, the beautiful lace-maker. – Oh, you don’t say! Jumped to the skill comparison! A ride to exhaustion on a horseback
and you’ll be saved. Only they difficult tracks that lead there.
Listen, you’re sure you’re not mistaken!? Well, you, maiden, before a wedding
on’s supposed to cry! But I am cheerful!
Looking forward to a merry life to come! Oh well, then you, horsy! On the whole
you were quite reliable! Poor you!! – Hey, Ivan! Today in the evening,
Nikita will be executed! – I’m sorry, people of Ozersk!
I ask forgiveness from you too, Natalia! Nikita is like my own father to me. – I’ll be behind you! Look over there! Not you!? To Natalia! Toward Natalia I’ll fly! To Ozersk! You’ll smash it! – Look! Look! It flies from itself!
It’s like a fairytale! No dark cloud or fog will delay the flight of an eagle, e flight of an eagle. Through the air, over seas and oceans
are pathways without number. THE END
