Clinton St. Theater and Stage Russia present BORIS



Don't be like these guys! 

Get some hair of the dog that bit you, and add some culture at the same time at the 2021/22 season of HIGHBROW HANGOVER.

Stage Russia is an intercultural project that films performances presented by the finest theater companies in Russia and distributes them in HD, translated and subtitled, into cinemas, arts centers and universities across the globe. 

With the help of its distribution arm, The Art Seen, they've recently added independent and original feature films into our mix, allowing us to present works of art that would otherwise be unavailable to a worldwide audience.

The core of their goals is to share the beauty and universality of Russian and Eastern European culture.

Brunch can be brought in from any number of delightful restaurants in our neighborhood.

About the director:

DMITRY KRYMOV graduated from the Moscow Art School Studio in 1976, after which he started work at the Malaya Bronnaya Theatre.

Since then, his productions have won seven Golden Mask awards and his Dmitry Krymov Laboratory has performed in Brazil, the US, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Finland, Estonia among many other countries.

Directed by Dmitry Krymov

Produced by Leonid Roberman

Based on the play "Boris Godunov" by Alexander Pushkin

A metaphor about the fate of Russia, its rulers and eternal values, Dmitry Krymov’s “Boris”, subverts its ideas behind the cover of Pushkin’s text to show a direct line of the current governance of Russia with its imperial past, as well as all the myths on which Russian identity now rests. A flying raven, a poet, a folk choir, saints and sinners, living and dead - all come to life in the twilight of the Provision Warehouses of the Moscow Museum in this new interpretation of a classic work by one of the world’s most renowned stage directors. Featuring Mikhail Filippov, Viktoriya Isakova, Maria Smolnikova and 2021 Golden Mask Award-winner, Timofey Trubuntsev.
