Playbill and tickets
Andrei Kalinin’s ‘How Blue It Is, The End of Alley…’ is based on the play by prominent painter, writer, theatre and film director Rezo Gabriadze, who is also the Art Director of the performance. This is Andrei Kalinin’s second production at the Alexandrinsky Theatre in Director’s chair: in 2017 he produced ‘The Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat’, which is now performed at the Small Stage.
This performance, based on the novel by I. Turgenev ‘Smoke’, was produced at the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theatre as a winning application of ‘Laboratory 18’ competition for young directors. The performance is in two acts, with the first one directed by Mikhail Milkis and the second — directed by Aleksey Demidchik.

The Revenger's Tragedy is the first performance with Italian actors in Italian produced by Declan Donnellan, an internationally famous British film/stage director. A literary foundation is a Jacobean tragedy of the same name (also attributed to Cyril Tourneur) of Thomas Middleton, a younger contemporary of Shakespeare. Middleton settles his characters in Italy and names them charactonyms: Vindice (Revenger), Spurio (Bastard), Supervacuo (Super soulless), Lussurioso (Libertine), Ambitioso (Ambitious), Castiza (Chaste)…
The action takes place in the Italian court. Vindice broods over killing the Duke for poisoning his fiancee Castiza who rejected the nobleman’s pressure.
