Аbout the performance

Duration of the performance is 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission. Age restriction 16+

The Storm directed by Anrey Moguchy reveals the unusual histrionics of Ostrovsky’s play. It is a fairy tale mystery, a description of Katerina’s life and other inhabitants of the Volga city Kalinov, who live on the stage decorated like Palekh lacquer box between the evil and the good. This is metaphysics of the dark Russian Tsardom, a terrifying tale that comes alive in the outer darkness and blatant blackness of scenography by Vera Martynov.

Multiple layers of Russian myth. Traditions of the great and the vicious revealed by Ostrovsky, which are still relevant.
This is a Russian interpretation of the classical conflict between the duty and emotion, unleashed passion and unquenchable faith.
