The Sunstroke is Irina Keruchenko’s second work in the Alexandrinsky Theatre. In her new work, the director follows Bunin’s idea that love is the essence of earthly happiness and the short moment of ultimate concentration of a man’s life force that burns him up. She continues to explore the philosophy of the feeling.
Xenia. The Story of Love - performance by Valery Fokin continues Alexandrinsky Theatre’s Saint-Petersburg cycle of performances based on literary images, facts and legends of the world’s most malicious city.
The earthly story of Saint Xenia has inspired the Theatre to create a performance in which a different period of the history of our city would interlace facing the need for spiritual truth and redemption.
The performance was the winner of the GOLDEN MASK Russian National Theatre Award in the Best Artist’s Work (Semyon Pastukh, Scenic Design) and Best Supporting Actor (Nikolai Marton as the Stranger) categories.
This large-scale project created by the Alexandrinsky Theatre Artistic Director, Valery Fokin, was the opening event at the 8th International Theatre Festival, which was also the year of Mikhail Lermontov’s 200th anniversary.
