Les trois soeurs
With a seemingly innate understanding of Checkov’s caustic, sometimes cruel humor, the Krasnaja Presnja Theater of Moscow brings us this classic exploration of aristocratic sensibilities during the collapse of Russia’s czarist society in the late 1800’s.
Three Sisters is a stark portrayal of the psychological degeneration experienced by three women attempting to overcome the boredom of provincial life through unattainable and hopelessly absurd aspirations. Director Youri Pogrebnichko breathes new life into this masterpiece of ironic modernism in a bittersweet reminder that we are somehow responsible for our own strange and melancholic fates.
