Performance video "PELLÉAS AND MÉLISANDE"

The premiere held on 2014. 09. 17

The First Studio of the Vakhtangov theatre.

A Belgian writer, playwright and philosopher, Nobel Prize winner for Literature Maurice Maeterlinck was born in 1862. He started his writing career quite early, but it took some time for the fame to come.

In 1896 he goes to France, where he moves closer to Symbolists. Ideas that the representatives of this art movement confess, has long stirred the young writer. His early plays - "Princess Maleine" (1889), "The Blind " (1890 ) and "Peleas and Melisande" (1892), seem to express the very essence of symbolism, with its philosophical understanding of life as a fight between life and death and the idealistic search for the Sense of a human existence in this World.

The First Studio of Young Actors of the Vakhtangov Theatre deliberately takes the most risky experiments. Its repertoire already includes "The Birds" by Aristophanes, " Six Characters in Search of an Author" by L. Pirandello.

And now a new premiere is on its way - the drama “Pelléas and Mélisande”which was once given by critics the definition of "dramaturgy of silence, insinuation and innuendo". However, the creators of the production composed a stylish, mysterious, and full of modern poetry and music history of ideal lovers.

Despite the grim fairy-tale way of narration, this is a romantic parable of the highest feelings, which are destined to die in the harsh world of people covered by no less strong passions, based on envy, jealousy, greed, selfishness and fear.

Not withstanding the dramatic final, "Pelléas and Mélisande" internally is a light production filled with indomitable energy and vivid imagination of its young actors.

Running time: 1 hours 50 min with one intermission.
The play is recommended for audience older than 16 years (16 +).
