19:00 Anyuta
Ballet in two acts to music by Valery Gavrilin. Libretto by Alexander Belinsky and Vladimir Vasiliev after the story Anna on the Neck by Anton Chekhov. Choreographer: Vladimir Vasiliev. Designer: Bella Manevich. New version of scenery and costumes: Victor Volsky. Following his wife’s untimely death, Pyotr Leontievich, a school teacher in a provincial town, is left caring for their three children — a grown-up daughter, Anna (Anyuta) and two young sons, Petya and Andryusha. Pining for his dearly loved wife, Pyotr Leontievich takes to drowning his sorrows in vodka. An elderly civil servant, Modest Alexeyevich, woos Anyuta. She accepts his proposal hoping that, by marrying him, she will break free from her miserable, uneventful life, on the brink of starvation, and save her family from poverty. Anyuta ends the relationship with her first love, a poor student and, after the wedding, moves into Modest Alexeyevich’s house. Very soon she realizes that everything she hoped for will never come to pass. Her husband is mean, cold and pragmatic, and has no intention of helping his wife’s family.
