By Anton Chekhov
Directed by Lev Dodin
Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg, Russia

“Dodin has created a miracle. Maly Drama’s company bubbles with the life, the thoughts, the art of Chekhov’s universe.”
—Novaya Gazeta (Russia)

Last at BAM with the revelatory sold-out production of Uncle Vanya (2010 Spring Season), Maly Drama Theatre returns with Three Sisters, Chekhov's great, tragicomic story of women contending with disillusioned life in a small Russian town. Lev Dodin directs this luminous, complex play with rich insight into Chekhov's eloquent understanding of resignation, longing, and love.

The legendary Maly Drama Theatre began against all odds in war-ravaged Leningrad in 1944, performing in relative obscurity until the mid-70s, when current artistic director Dodin and other well-known artists joined the company. Maly Drama grew, in breadth and ambition, to become an internationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning theater famous for challenging theatrical boundaries with Dodin's thrillingly imaginative productions and accomplished ensemble of actors.

Design by Alexander Borovsky

Three Sisters performances at BAM are supported by the Ministry for Culture of the Russian Federation
