This Spring, Celebrate Chekhov!
Arriving this March, The Russian Arts Theater and Studio will premiere its first annual New York Chekhov Festival, featuring three weeks of performances, post-show talks and a free lecture at The Jordan Center at New York University. Taking place at the intimate and quaint Balcony Theater at West Park Presbyterian Church, performances will alternate between Three Sisters and a Russian-speaking production of Swan Song (Про Великое Ничто), starring Russia's most iconic actor Ernst Zorin of the Vakhtangov Theater. Join us this spring as we pay homage to the life and works of Russia's most beloved writer Anton Chekhov!
Just back from Japan! Artistic Director Aleksey Burago, along with assistant teacher and actress Di Zhu, led a six-weeks acting workshop based on the fundamental principles of Stanislavsky and Michael Chekhov. Thank you to the organizers, translators, and students for this incredible experience. Actors share a universal nationality and we hope to reunite soon!
