Donnellan staged several performances for the Chekhov festival with Russian actors. Among them are “Three Sisters”, “Boris Godunov” and other productions.
In Sochi, this unique performance became part of the international theater festival named after Chekhov, first presented in the city. Irina Romanets, deputy head of Sochi, spoke about the long negotiations that preceded such a significant cultural event. In connection with the Year of Great Britain’s Language and Literature in Russia, the Twelfth Night was shown in Sochi thanks to the support of the British Council.
A feature of the production created by Declan Donnellan was the director’s adherence to the traditions of the Shakespeare Theater, where only men were actors. Participants in the play recall that the performance of female roles was initially not easy for them. The role played by Andrei Kuzichev became especially difficult. The artist was to play a woman pretending to be a man. Participants in the performance note that the minimalism of the scenery helps them to easily exist in this performance.
