Events Description

One of Moscow’s oldest theatre companies returns to Toronto with a show that will sweep you off your feet and into a storm of intrigue, hidden truths, and heaps of snow.

Masquerade is presented by Luminato and Show One Productions.

Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre of Russia, one of Moscow’s oldest theatre companies, returns to Toronto with Masquerade, a production based on the writings of Mikhail Lermontov, one of Russia’s most important 19th century poets.
The tragi-farce uncovers the real moralities of modern society, peering behind the masks that everyone wears. Visionary Lithuanian director Rimas Tuminas, whose critically acclaimed Uncle Vanya sold out at Luminato in 2017, applies his signature style with a large cast and joyous music to tell Lermontov’s story, full of scandalous love affairs, squandered opportunities, exposed lies, truths, and a discovery that words that can kill.

Who is it for?

In Russian with English surtitles.
