One of the most titled plastic directors, Merited Worker of Arts of the Russian Federation, Director of the performance "Casanova" Sergey Gritsai returns to the Sadovaya st.’ theater!

“The Game of Love and Chance” is a classic romantic comedy of situation that has received a new interpretation beyond the time frame. Mr. Orgon decides to marry his daughter Silvia to a noble, handsome young man. Silvia, desiring to understand what kind of person her potential fiancé is, decides on a trick: she changes places with her maid Lisette. However, the young man, who also has doubts about the future bride, comes up with a similar plan. Masters become servants, servants become masters...

The deep psychologism of the action, feelings and internal conflicts of the characters will be revealed on the stage of the Theater “Priut Komedianta” not only by Director's decisions, but also by choreographic turns that will give volume to the characters' personalities. The audience will also be pleased with the imaginative reflections of the Director and Costume Designer Andrey Klimov, a true master of his craft, whose works are so amazing that entire exhibitions are dedicated to them.

The performance was created with the support of the St. Petersburg department of the Union of Theatre Workers of the Russian Federation..
