Exclusive North American Engagement
Chekhov International Theatre Festival
Formed in Moscow by award-winning British director Declan Donnellan
of Cheek by Jowl under the auspices of the Chekhov International Theatre Festival, this company of Russian actors performs critically acclaimed versions of two classics of theater (See also Three Sisters
). Twelfth Night
Shakespeare's classic comedy is given a Russian interpretation. Turning on a case of mistaken identity, the play weaves its way through mistaken gender, mistaken love, mistaken death, and few more common mistakes that are bred of a highly charged romantic atmosphere. Ben Brantley of the New York Times
calls it "blissful...a mist of theatrical enchantment!" Performed in Russian with English surtitles.
Performance Timing: 2 hours, 40 minutes, including one intermission.
