From the Red Torch Theatre, Novosibirsk

Timofey Kulyabin’s Golden Mask Award winning “Onegin” removes all expectations of Pushkin’s novel in verse and places you not in some historical epoch, but in today’s world, immersed in the inner thoughts, hopes, despairs, passions and disappointments that drift in, through and around the 4 central figures, Onegin, Tatiana, Olga and Lensky. There are no grand balls, no fans, no lorgnettes, no “Encyclopedia of Russian life”. Just a quiet love story that perfectly conveys the attitude of the great poet and how very much his masterwork still resonates with our 21st century reality.

Vakhtangov Theatre, Moscow

Rimas Tuminas adaptation of two novels by fellow Lithuanian, Grigory Kanovich, is a dreamy, ruminative, comedic road trip, centering around the parlous fortunes of Eastern European Jews at the start of the 20th century. A period piece that carries a modern conscious, Smile Upon Us, Lord is a Becket-like Waiting for Jehovah that has garneredrave reviews during its recent runs in both London and New York, and promises to be just as memorable on the big screen. Featuring three towering figures from the Russian stage, Viktor Sukhorukov, Aleksei Guskov and Vladimir Simonov.

Presented in Russian with English subtitles.
190 minutes (includes one 15 minute intermission)

From The Satirikon Theatre, Moscow

Yury Butusov’s brilliant, award-winning staging of King Lear tells us a story in which the collapse of a family, the collapse of a country, and the collapse of an individual are all connected to each other. In Shakespeare’s classic work, Lear imagined himself to be God’s equal – and so he divided his kingdom between his daughters just to see what would happen. Featuring 4 time Golden Mask Award-winning actor Konstantn Raikin as King Lear.
