Performance online: Dostoevsky’s ”The Idiot” at Theatre of Nation, Moscow

Embrace this amazing opportunity to experience greatest classic literature on stage with mastery of clowning traditions.

Even though there are over 20 characters in this ‘most personal of all Dostoevsky’s major works’, only four actors are engaged in the performance – alongside with breathtaking Ingeborga Dapkūnaitė, who plays the part of Prince Myshkin. Maxim Didenko staged The Idiot in the aesthetics of “cirque noir”: “among all the other, there are two things in our world that got lost: the culture of clownery and the perception of Dostoevsky as a living human full of irony”.

Premieres on Wednesday, January the 27th at Theatre of Nations, Moscow. Performance will be streamed ONLINE at 19.00 (Central European Time).  Dostoyevsky’s “The Idiot” performed in Russian with English subtitles.
