THE CHERRY ORCHARD
Anton Chekhov

Nearest shows:

Chekhov’s masterpiece, «The Cherry Orchard», generally considered as his greatest play, is a tragic tale of changing eras and generations.The generation of Lyubov Ranevskaya and her brother, Gayev, sentimental and impractical Russian nobles, is fading. They struggle to adapt to their new social and personal responsibilities and thus are forced to give way to the motion of time and progress represented by a well-off businessman, Yermolai Lopakhin. A beautiful story of nostalgia is carefully preserved in production directed by Igor Ilyinsky.
