Why See Masquerade?


The Russian Othello

Following his triumphant staging of Uncle Vaya in 2017, Russian director Rimas Tuminas returns to New York City Center with one of Russian theatre's lesser known gems.

Based on the drama by Lermontov, Masquerade follows the fortunes of Yevgey Arbenin, a man possessed of a rebellious spirit who strains against the suffocating social mores of 1830's St. Petersburg high society. We follow him from one decadent party to another, until the building pressure inside of him spills over into an horrendous act of violence. This production, which is packed with top Russian acting talent, also features music from the great composer Aram Khachaturyan, originally composed for a 1941 Moscow staging.

A new, first-class Broadway version that at times raises its sparkle quotient to incandescence.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
