Goodbye 2017!

Dear Friends,

2017 has been a blessed and fruitful year for The Russian Arts Theater and Studio. The season opened with our first annual New York Chekhov Festival at The Center at West Park, featuring Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, a Russian-speaking production of Swan Song and  Anton Chekhov and The Golden Age of The Moscow Art Theater, a lecture free and open to the public held at New York University. As spring turned to summer, TRATS continued its season with a sold-out run of Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, Or, The Devil Comes to Moscow, a production featuring an 18-ensemble cast that played to rave reviews at the West End Theater. This December, we completed our year with The Rise and Fall of Macondo: Celebrating Gabriel García Márquez, a winter benefit that featured a first-look presentation based on Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, which was met with enthusiastic reception by our guests.  In our profession, there is nothing more gratifying than being able to create realities within the walls of the theater. However, no creation is complete without the final and most important aspect of theater-making: the audience. From the bottom of our hearts, we wish to thank you for being part of 2017.

With Gratitude,

Aleksey Burago
