School's classics project presents a play in English 'Chechov's vaudevilles' - 'The Bear' and 'The Marriage Proposal'. Directed by Ekaterina Granitova - we asked 'Why in English'?

Moscow has a town within a town - a couple of thousand foreigners who live and work here permanently, in embassies and companies. The number of tourists visiting Moscow is also growing. They can watch Russian Ballet and listen to Russian opera without a need to understand Russian, but the Russian theatre is inaccessible to them because of this language barrier. We would like to let the expats and tourists discover Chekhov in the city where he lived and worked. We decided to perform the two most famous vaudevilles by Chekhov 'the Bear' and 'the Marriage Proposal'. It turns out that both plays are still very relevant for international audiences. Issues of feminism, loneliness, passion, debt, hobbies, broken communication- are explored and all are universal themes, understood the world over . The cast of talented actors includes graduates of RATI-GITIS - Makar Zaporozhsky (TV series Molodezhka), Yana Guryanova (TV series INTERNY), Ksenya Orlova and Ivan Vasilevsky. The musical accompaniment of the play is enhanced by beautiful performances of Russian romances and arias by opera singer Igor Danilov. The scenographic director of the play is Elena Yarochkina, an artist of the theatre of Opera of Moscow conservatory. Chekhov sounds very different in English. A different language gives a new flavor to this very well known material. The play will appeal not only to foreigners, but everybody who can understand English, including students and school pupils. This is a contemporary play that proves that we are lucky to be born and live in the same country as Chechov.

Театральный проект «Школьная классика» представляет спектакль «Водевили Чехова» на английском языке!

25 декабря | 14:00 | Центральный Дом Литераторов (Большая Никитская, 53)

Стоимость билета: 1500 руб.

Контактный телефон: 8(915)4961082


Театральный проект «Школьная классика» представляет спектакль «Водевили Чехова» - два водевиля «Медведь» и «Предложение» на английском языке. Спектакль поставила режиссёр Екатерина Гранитова. Вопрос режиссёру: почему на английском?
В Москве живёт город в городе – несколько сотен тысяч иностранных граждан, постоянно работающих в посольствах и компаниях. Растёт число туристов. Все эти люди могут посмотреть русский балет и послушать русскую оперу, но русская драма закрыта для них языковым барьером. Мы хотим открыть Чехова экспатам и туристам в городе, где Чехов жил и творил. Мы взяли два самых известных водевиля Чехова – «Медведь» и «Предложение». Оказалось, что обе пьесы очень актуальны для международной аудитории. Феминизм, одиночество, страсть, долги, хобби, нарушенные коммуникации – всё это универсальные темы, понятные во всём мире. Играют талантливые актёры, выпускники РАТИ-ГИТИС: Макар Запорожский (сериал 'МОЛОДЁЖКА'), Яна Гурьянова (сериал 'ИНТЕРНЫ' ), Ксения Орлова и Иван Василевский. Отличное произношение, энтузиазм, радость от прикосновения к великому классику. Музыкальная составляющая спектакля усилена русскими романсами и ариями в исполнении оперного певца Игоря Данилова. Художественное решение спектакля принадлежит художнику оперного театра Московской консерватории Елене Ярочкиной.

Проект может показаться странным, но хочу сказать, что Чехов очень интересно звучит на английском. Другой язык даёт новую окраску хорошо известному материалу. Думаю, что спектакль будет настоящим открытием и понравится не только иностранцам, но и всем, кто понимает английский язык, в том числе студентам и школьникам, давая им стимул для его дальнейшего изучения. Это весьма современный спектакль, доказывающий, что мы – счастливцы, нам повезло родиться в стране Чехова, который в нашем веке стал понятным и близким огромному количеству людей на нашей планете, от Японии до Европы, США и Канады, ведь его произведения переведены уже на десятки иностранных языков.
