Live in HD:

Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya

Rimas Tuminas’s reimagining of Anton Chekhov’s tale about broken illusions and dashed hopes is freed from traditional trappings, leaving behind a battlefield for passions and colliding ambitions.

High-Definition Broadcast from Moscow’s Vakhtangov Theater. Presented in partnership with the Michigan Theater.

Anton Chekhov’s tragicomic masterpiece of dashed dreams, thwarted love, and eternal longing begins as Professor Serebryakov and his young wife, Elena, arrive at the family’s remote country estate that has been looked after by Sonya (the Professor’s daughter from his first marriage) and her Uncle Vanya (Voynitsky), the Professor’s brother-in-law.

Vanya has sacrificed his life managing the estate for the Professor, whom he once revered, but is now filled with regret for lost time, a pain made worse by the arousing presence of Elena. An acutely observed study of humanity, Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya remains a classic of Russian theater, a play of tragic and tangled love combining comic scenes of the everyday with a scathing attack on the idle provincial life of the upper classes.

Performed in Russian with English subtitles.
