2373 RFF17 - UNCLE VANYA (1970)

Based on Chekhov's much-loved play this is a powerhouse production featuring some of Russia’s best actors of the era.

Retired Professor Serebryakov returns to his deceased wife's estate - with his new wife, Yelena, in tow. Prior to his return, the Professor received a stipend from his brother-in-law, "Uncle Vanya" who lives on a meager salary and now resents the professor. When the Professor arrives with Yelena, she becomes an object of obsession for Uncle Vanya and a cause for upheaval in the measured country life.

This is an exceedingly graceful, beautifully acted production that highlights Chekhov as Russia's saddest, gentlest, funniest and most compassionate playwright.
