Moscow's Chekhov International Festival returns with a forceful new production of The Tempest. Cheek by Jowl's Russian sister company brings to life this disturbing masque of power, control and illusion. Shakespeare juggles magic, laughter, danger and love with all the flair and freedom of his maturity.
Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod's internationally renowned Russian ensemble, whose 'acting is nothing short of sublime' (The Times), were previously seen in Twelfth Night, Three Sisters and Boris Godunov.
Audience: +16 Premiere Year: 2011 Status: archived Language: Russian
This is a fine, fresh, bold look at a play that can sometimes seem over-familiar and sentimental
