Maly Theatre presents «Wedding!Wedding!Wedding»,a production that combines Anton Chekhov’s famous vaudevilles «The Bear» and «The Proposal». Designated as «sketches», this hilarious interpretation of two of Chekhov’s short plays explores the process of getting married. First comes a story telling us about how an anticipated happiness was nearly ruined by a money argument («The Proposal»). Then all of a sudden monetary claim turns into a proposal («The Bear»). Overall, this production is a great satirical examination of human nature, the upper middle class and courtship.

Lyrics: Poems by Heinrich Heine (translation by Alexander Blok) and Nikolay Zubov set to music
