Based on the short story by Anton Chekhov, THE BLACK MONK tells the tragic tale of philosophy student Andrey Vasil'ich Kovrin. On the verge of a nervous breakdown, Kovrin decides to visit his childhood friend Tanya Pesotsky at the estate of her father. As he and Tanya develop a relationship and eventually marry, a black monk of legend begins appearing to Kovrin in visions. Though these hallucinations at first imbue the young man with joy and energy, they eventually lead to his ruin.

Kama Ginkas’ dramatization of Chekhov’s story for The Moscow Young Generation Theater has become a theatre sensation. The show has won the Grand Prix and the Critics’ Prize for Best Production at the Baltic House international theater festival in St. Petersburg.

Presented in Russian with English subtitles.


 

Eugene Onegin

and
Wednesday, June 28 at 4:00pm at Movies of Lake Worth


Running Time: 210 minutes

Eugene Onegin has often been referred to as an encyclopedia of 19th century Russian life. Rimas Tuminas’ reimagining unfolds in the memory and imagination of Pushkin’s characters. The images are split between past and present, between reality and imagination.The scale of the production constantly shifts from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana’s love letter, framed and hung on the wall, looming next to and above Onegin’s arm-chair.

A production referred to as "exuberant, indelible and arrestingly beautiful" by the New York Times, The Vakhtangov Theatre's Eugene Onegin, starring the incomparable Sergey Makovetskiy in the title role, is a sumptuous work that will leave you with enough beautiful memories and images to last a lifetime.

Presented in Russian with English subtitles.


 

Anna Karenina

Monday, July 10 at 12:30pm at Movies of Delray
and
Wednesday, July 12 at 4:00pm at Movies of Lake Worth

Directed and choreographed by Angelica Cholina, this internationally award winning Vakhtangov Theatre production of ANNA KARENINA is a choreographed interpretation of Leo Tolstoy's classic novel.

Cholina strives to find the equivalent of Tolstoy's words in harmony and movement, with every gesture holding meaning. The music of Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the characters and their depth, together with elegance and mood corresponding to the amplitude of the novel.

A crowd favorite in Moscow which plays to sold-out houses month after month, this meticulously detailed and gorgeous ANNA KARENINA is an example of the new Russian theater scene, fearlessly focusing on the visceral, allowing audience members to form their own interpretations.

Winner of the "Villanueva Award", Best Foreign Performance, International Havana Theatre Festival; Winner "Crystal Turandot", Best Debut Performance, Olga Lerman.

Without dialogue or subtitles.
