About the event

The world-famous work - Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard" - is being carried on stage from Astana to Melikhovo by the Russian Drama Theater named after. M. Gorky.

Landowner Lyubov Ranevskaya, who squandered her entire fortune in Paris, returns to her family estate, the main advantage of which is the cherry orchard. The estate was ruined and put up for auction for debts. The family's former servant, now a millionaire merchant Ermolai Lopakhin, in love with Ranevskaya, offers to sell the garden in parts to summer residents in order to preserve the estate. But for Ranevskaya, losing a house and a garden is like losing the memories of the happy times of childhood and youth spent here. In the time allotted before the auction, she, her daughters, brother and friends make unrealistic plans to save the estate, misses and is nostalgic for the past.

The property has been sold. And it is bought by the one whose father was not allowed further than the threshold - Lopakhin. And the first order of the new owner was to cut down the entire cherry orchard.

The play reveals the problems of the decline of noble culture, the consequences of the abolition of serfdom, and the invasion of the progressive thinking of “new people.” But the historical conflict develops into the existential problem of the pettiness of man and the ridiculousness of life. Therefore, the director preserves Chekhov’s genre definition of “The Cherry Orchard” as a comedy: the characters are funny in their small useless actions and empty conversations. Meanwhile, the only person most closely connected with the estate, the old footman Firs, remains in a locked house, forgotten by everyone, completely alone.
