THE INSPECTOR GENERAL

Valery Fokin, who is rightly considered one of the best contemporary authorities on Nikolay Gogol’s works, turns to The Inspector General for the third time. This Alexandrinsky Theatre project, however, is special. This is the stage where Gogol’s comedy first premiered on April 19, 1836, with Nikolay Gogol himself taking an active part in the staging of his play.

05.10

THE DOUBLE

The Double performance by Valery Fokin is the first stage version of the Saint-Petersburg novel by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky in the history of the theatre. The novel is the most enigmatic and mysterious work by the writer.

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW

...The performance is about creativity, it is about creating the relationships we want. We may call the Sun the Moon, yet it will still be the Sun. In other words, the what is more important than the how. The play teaches us that the true dreams of our heart may come true. That’s it. After all, like any other work of art, theatre is a dream…

THE RAVEN

This is not Nikolai Roshchin’s first attempt to stage a play by Gozzi. Back in 2011 he staged The Raven at the A.R.T.O. theatre, turning down the festive design characteristic of commedia dell’arte purposefully. In 2001 Nikolai Roshchin put on the play The Stag King (Russian Academic Youth Theatre, Moscow, 2001) which was recognized as one of the best Gozzi’s performances on the Russian stage. This rendering brought the director the Smoktunovsky Award and the Moscow Critics’ Association Award.
