• Stage Russia HD: “The Seagull”
by Anton Chekhov
Saturday, Sept. 16, 2 p.m.
Ethel M. Barber Theater
Yury Butusov's frenetic production for Satirikon Theatre abounds with an incredible freedom and openness, delving deep into the throes of artistic creation and the anguish of the artist who struggles to find a language of his own. This is not only a performance about the theater, it is an analogy of the theater that devours its children like monsters.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles, the running time is three hours and 50 minutes (with one 15-minute intermission).
