Live Broadcast: Stage Russia- King Lear
Saturday, January 26, 1:00 pm
Satirikon Theatre, Moscow: Yury Butusov’s brilliant, award-winning staging of King Lear tells us a story in which the collapse of a family, the collapse of a country, and the collapse of an individual are all connected to each other. In Shakespeare’s classic work, Lear imagined himself to be God’s equal – and so he divided his kingdom between his daughters just to see what would happen. Featuring four-time Golden Mask Award-winning actor Konstantn Raikin as Lear.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles.
2h50m / 1 intermission
