Tragifars in two acts based on J. Goldman's play "The Lion in the Winter"
One of the best plays of the twentieth century, in which the struggle for power, love and hatred simultaneously, betrayal and loyalty and other human passions, truly Shakespearean incandescence, are embodied in the relationship between King Henry II and his royal wife Elinor, their sons, the French king and other interested Persons.
The action, as in the ancient tragedy, unfolds during the day in the castle of Chinon, where for Christmas, for decision on the heir to the throne, the disgraced queen, who has been languishing for 10 long years in prison "by the grace" of the king, is returned from imprisonment.
This fascinating story, tragically painted, with an incredibly intricate, actually detective storyline, brilliant dialogues, soul-withering feelings - turns into a tragifarce according to the idea of director Burdonsky and his remarkable ensemble of actors.

Great performance. Ludmila Chursina is beautiful, but her diction spoils the whole impression of the performance. I'm afraid that if I sat on the fifth row, I would not understand anything. Very good Sergey Kolesnikov!
The original production, somewhat different interpretation of the plot from the Lenkom "Aquitaine lioness." Strong are all the actors, except Chursina L .. Her diction is no, no power, spoiled the whole play. Very good Sergei Kolesnikov, already the second performance with his participation, sileen.
A wonderful performance. We went with my mother, this is the third performance in this theater, which we went to. The first was - "Playing on the keys of the soul." In the play "Eleanor and her Men" eats where to laugh, there is where to think about the eternal and the nature of man. I like that. Everyone played great!
