CHERRY ORCHARD FESTIVAL PRESENTS
THEATRE OF NATIONS
June 14 – 17, 2018
NEW YORK CITY CENTER
“Astoundingly perceptive in all that concerns his character’s
emotional essence and rationale.” —Teatr Magazine on Evgeny Mironov
Following their critically acclaimed run of Shukshin’s Stories (2016), Russia’s Theatre of Nations returns to New York with Anton Chekhov’s Ivanov, a dramatic play about an “antihero” melancholy upper class man, struggling to regain his former glory. Performed in Russian with English supertitles, this daring take on Ivanov retains Chekhov’s keen observation, comedic eye for social detail, and instinct for the drama of human contradiction.
The prolific theater and opera director Timofey Kulyabin, best known for his controversial take on Wagner’s Tannhäuser at Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre in 2014, directs an award-winning cast, led by Evgeny Mironov, Chulpan Khamatova, Elizaveta Boyarskaya, and Victor Verzhbitsky. Premiered in Moscow on December 23, 2016, the production was nominated for the prestigious Golden Mask National Theatre Award (equivalent of the TONY Awards) in multiple categories.
