A dream has wings and does not need a timetable
After its world premiere in Moscow in 1901, Three Sisters became one of the most performed tragicomedies of this great Russian classic.
The shiny past of educated daughters of an officer and the grey bleakness of the present connects the fates of Olga, Masha and Irina. Life in a small gubernatorial town is saturated with banality and the situation of these intelligent sisters gets more difficult every day. Their basic life feeling could be summarized in a single word - hope. The world of dreams and desires becomes an alternative form of being for them. Their inability to break the vicious circle of unfulfilled idealistic fantasies and the dismal reality is a source of bitter humour and grotesque compassion.
Premiere on 11 February 2017 at the Grand Theatre.
