"The theaters say that they have never seen such ferment in the theater, such a general applause-booing, and at no other time have they heard so many disputes as they saw and heard on my play" - from Chekhov's letter to his brother, November 20, 1887 of the year.
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov's first play was written by the order of the entrepreneur Fedor Korsh. On November 19, 1887, her premiere took place in the same historic building where the Theater of Nations is today.
10 years ago Evgeny Mironov was appointed as the artistic director of this theater. In November he turns 50 years old. Yevgeny Mironov decided to mark his double anniversary with participation in the new production of Ivanov.
The play is staged by Timofei Kulyabin, who earlier released on the stage of the Theater of Nations "Electra" and # sonnetzespira, one of the most subtle and unusual directors of his generation.
This is not the first appeal of Kulyabin to Chekhov - six months ago the "Three Sisters" delivered to them in the Novosibirsk "Red Torch" were recognized as one of the main discoveries of the Vienna Theater Festival, the most prestigious theater show in the world.
"Three Sisters" Kulyabin put without a single word (the actors in his performance communicate in the language of the dumb) and thereby for the first time in many years made the viewer to get into the Chekhov text appearing in the credits. One can argue that a new life awaits Chekhov's "Ivanov" - one of the most mysterious, tragic and unsolved Chekhov's plays. Moreover, around the director gathered a beautiful cast of actors: Yevgeny Mironov, Chulpan Khamatova, Igor Gordin, Elizabeth Boyarsky, Viktor Verzhbitsky and others.
And today many live like the heroes of AP. Chekhov! Suffering from misunderstanding and all sorts of troubles middle manager, a little eccentric, partly romantic, goes to the dacha to Lebedev: there is a celebration, celebrate a birthday, and Ivanov needs to agree on a deferred payment. He owed all the money, this impractical hero.
Ivanov is in love, and even reciprocally, in the daughter of Lebedev, a young beauty. But he is married to a cancer-afflicted woman, he needs to take care of his wife, and we need to get some money for treatment right away ...
It looks simple in everyday life, but every breath is filled with meaning: there is a tremulous mutual understanding of two loving hearts, and ridiculous attempts by a romanticist to settle his finances, and a cordial intimacy seasoned with alienation ... Everything is Chekhov's ambiguous, uneasy, insoluble .. .
