VII International Theatre Festival Stanislavsky Season Opens on October 17, 2011

The 7th International Theatre Festival Stanislavsky Season takes place in Moscow between October 17 and November 15, 2011.

      Organised by the international Konstantin Stanislavsky Fund, with the support from the Russian Ministry of Culture and the Department of Culture of the City of Moscow, this annual event attracts stage directors from all corners of the world. In the next 3 years, however, the festival promises to be different, as it is now positioned among other events marking the upcoming 150th anniversary of the birth of Konstantin Stanislavsky - on January 17, 1863.

      This year's plays include Per Gynt by Henril Ibsen. This is the newest addition to one of the best-loved Moscow theatres, Lenkom, under the leadership of an acclaimed director Mark Zakharov. Ibsen's play was adapted for the stage by Zakharov and Oleg Glushkov and will open the festival on October 17th. Eimuntas Nekrošius's Hamlet welcomes the spectators on October 29 and 30.

      Tim Crouch brings a monoplay I, Malvolio, that follows in the footsteps of his previous musings on the fate of characters from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.

      Other plays also include "Enemies. The Story of Love" by the Jewish Nobel Prize laureate, Isaac Bashevis Singer (performed at Sovremennik Theatre (headed by Galina Volchek); and "Waves" after the novel by Virginia Woolfe.

      Apart from Russia, theatrical companies have come this year from Belgium, Austria, Great Britain, Germany, and Italy.
