Conductor: Lothar Koenigs
Production and Stage: Dmitri Tcherniakov


A dandy who is as wandering as he is incapable of commitment coolly rejects the love of a landowner's daughter - while she grows from this rejection, he breaks from his neglect.

The production of director and set designer Dmitri Tcherniakov, which was released in 2006 at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, has travelled the world and remains one of his most important productions to this day. Tcherniakov created a hermetic classicistic dining room, in which a timeless inside event takes place. The central design element is a long table, which is used as a place for shared festive enjoyment of life, making the inescapable alienation of the characters that much more tangible.
