A ballet
Based on Anton Chekhov’s play Three Sisters


Oh, am I glad! There are three of them, sisters. I remember, three girls. I don’t remember the faces anymore, but your father, the Colonel Prozorov, had three little girls, that I remember very well, I saw you with my own eyes. How time flies! / Vershinin

You don’t get married out of love but to do your duty. At least that’s what I think, I for one would get married without love. No matter who the suitor was, I’d accept, as long as he was a decent person. I’d even marry an old man….. / Olga

I love, I love….. I love that man….. You saw him just now…. / Masha

When I awoke today, got up and washed, I was suddenly gripped by the moment of clarity about everything in the world and I know how to live. / Irina

A Chekhov character is a person with both the good and bad.
Life offers opportunities to choose between action and omission. Between feeling and numbness.
Between fullness and emptiness.

Which path will each character choose in this timeless work?
That is what interests us!

Premieres 1 February 2020 in the Small Building of the Vanemuine

Does the Moscow of dreams, where the soul longs to go, exist at all?
