This is the first work of Stefan Braunschweig in Russia: in France, he already put The Seagull, Three Sisters, and The Cherry Orchard. Within the framework of the XIX open art festival "Cherry Forest", the director showed a performance to which, according to him, he went for almost 30 years.

When the director spoke to us about how important what Astrov was talking about, I thought: are we doing a performance about the forest? Here is such love, such characters … But while we were rehearsing every day, fires began in Siberia, in the Amazon, in South Africa. And only then did they understand what the topic was in the play and how far Astrov was right. Stefan loaded us so that time was barely enough for himself. He cleared us of emotions, made us understand every word of the play and send all our feelings into a narrow corridor. It was necessary to fulfill the director’s task – to follow the text without improvisations,
– said Julia Peresild.
Elizabeth Boyarskaya admitted that Stefan is very careful about the text.
It turned out to be modern today, but at the same time a canonical reading. The tragedy of my heroine, Elena Andreevna, is that she did not live a full life: she did not take place either as a woman, or as a pianist, or as a mother. She doesn’t hang around with boredom, as other heroes think, she has a severe depression, she is corroded by longing,
– the actress told about her character.
