The company is internationally renowned, and became the first international company to win an Olivier Award, doing so in 1989 for Stars In The Morning Sky. They have also claimed numerous Golden Mask Awards, overseen by their esteemed artistic director Lev Dodin, who has been at the helm for 35 years.
Three Sisters is Chekhov’s classic story of the Prozorov family, contending with their disillusioned lives in provincial Russia.
Dodin says of the complex play, “Chekhov speaks with passion and eloquence about the hopelessness of our life, about the tragic discrepancies between our yearnings and reality, about the vital importance of staying true to oneself and preserving your dignity.”
