THE CHERRY ORCHARD
Moscow Art Theatre
First staged in 1904 by Konstantin Stanislavsky in the very theater and on the very stage of this production, director Adolf Shapiro's interpretation asks the question, where would the characters of this play live today years after their cherry orchard has been cut down? The answer, which lies in the material world created by set designer David Borovsky, is, of course, on the stage. Russian star, Renata Litvinova, in her debut theatrical performance, perfectly captures the confusion and futility in trying to understand a changing world that has no room for sentimentality. Classic Russian theater at its best. Filmed before a live audience from the Moscow Art Theatre.
