Stage Russia: Uncle Vanya
Stage Russia HD (Vakhtangov Theatre): Rimas Tuminas' reimagining of Anton Chekhov's tale about broken illusions and dashed hopes is freed from its traditional trappings, leaving behind a battlefield for passions and colliding ambitions, We are given an empty space from which life has departed, a theatre space with grey slips, a plaster of Paris lion – a symbol of Petersburg, perhaps the ancestor who built the house came from there, a workbench made out of rough boards, an old sofa, several chairs of different colors. This "Uncle Vanya" is about what Chekhov’s characters think and what they admit to only at moments of emotional turmoil. They are at times tongue-tied or overly brutal, but their revelations break out of them fervently, desperately just as a man breaks out of a stuffy room into the open air. A Golden Mask Winner for Best Drama, featuring the inimitable Sergey Makovetskiy as Voynitsky. 180 minutes (with one 15 minute intermission included) Russian with English subtitles

Stage Russia: Macbeth Kino
Stage Russia HD (Lensoviet Theatre): Yuri Butusov’s pastiche of conflicting styles only touches on the storyline of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, reflecting, instead, both confusion from confronting the myth and the desire to unveil it. It follows a non-linear technique, compiling fragments, jumbling up the characters, having them swap roles, understanding that only by blending together these singular moments can the desired completeness be achieved. The scenes are like flaming auroras, fragments of dreams and visions. The surrealistic action in the style of David Lynch plunges the audience into a state of subtle sensuousness. Macbeth.Kino is a beautiful nightmare that sends shivers down your spine and makes you feel like staying in it for good. 280 minutes (with one 15 minute intermission included) Russian with English subtitles
