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 2019/20 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.




Referred to by the New York Times as “…exuberant and arrestingly beautiful”, and by the London Telegraph theatre critic as “…one of the most extraordinary nights at the theatre I have ever known”, Rimas Tuminas’ miraculous Eugene Onegin is, at long last available to a world-wide audience. 

The play unfolds in the memory and imagination of Pushkin’s characters. The images are split between past and present, between reality and imagination.The scale of the production constantly shifts from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana’s love letter, framed and hung on the wall, looming next to and above Onegin’s arm-chair. 

Filmed before a live audience from Moscow's venerable Vakhtangov Theatre.
