Gerhart Hauptmann

I reckon that our new production should resonate with the audience. Unfortunately, there's a lot of "theatrics" in the bad sense of the word in today's life - in media, in relationships, at work... Fake feelings, fake emotions, fake situations, fake people...This hypocrisy is savored with pleasure, repeated and reflected as if in a distorting mirror. True feelings and life are there, where hearts are torn, when true love comes and, unfortunately, sometimes it leads to tragedy. Hauptmann’s play is a tragic love story of an old man and a young girl, about the destructive force of self-interest and greed that cloud judgement. The lust for money conquers love. Our performance is a romantic tragedy about the life of two pure and decent people. (director of the production, People’s Artist of Russia, Vladimir Beylis).
