About the event

The characters from Chekhov's play come to life in the Melikhov estate landscapes. The play is performed not in a closed theater room, but in the open air of the estate in which Anton Pavlovich Chekhov lived and worked on the play.

Melikhovo undoubtedly became the “prototype” of the Voinitsky estate: Ivan Petrovich and Sonya are engaged in the same farming as the inhabitants of Melikhovo during the time of Chekhov. These characters are deep to their core! This depth is carefully conveyed by the actors of the Melikhovo Theater. There is so much wisdom and humility in the final scene of the play... To feel the wisdom and silence of this scene, you need life experience. In order to go through pain, tears, betrayal, disappointment, hopelessness, find the strength to overcome the longing for a better life, sit down at the table, dip your pen in ink and start counting buckwheat and vegetable oil: “On February 2, 20 pounds of vegetable oil...”

And the medical missionary activity of Anton Pavlovich in the Serpukhov Zemstvo Council and in Melikhovo, of course, served as the basis for creating the image of Doctor Astrov.

Each of the characters in the play lives their own story, which, according to the plan of director Kirill Loskutov, is combined into a common drama of life. Every character, every actor is a soloist in the play. In the play, the director continued Chekhov’s author’s position, i.e. he leaves it to the audience to judge and justify his characters.

And most importantly, the play is relevant to this day! How often do people ruin love and sometimes sacrifice it to some petty interests. This performance is not about the fate of the intelligentsia at the turn of the century, it is about people outside the time frame, about human feelings and lost lives. Their life has not gone well, they are ridiculous, but “you have to live,” and they live. To understand the essence of human relationships, you should come to this performance!
