Love and Intrigue
June 10, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
Legendary director Lev Dodin (The Cherry Orchard, 2016 Winter/Spring; Three Sisters, 2012 Winter/Spring) and Russia’s acclaimed Maly Drama Theatre bring a classic work by German poet, playwright, and philosopher Friedrich Schiller to vital new life. A Romeo and Juliet for the bourgeois age, Love and Intrigue— first performed in 1787—tells the story of Ferdinand, the son of a high-ranking courtier who upends his father’s carefully laid plans and jeopardizes his fortuitous forthcoming marriage to one Lady Milford by falling in love with Louise Miller, the daughter of a middle-class musician. Courtly intrigue and class warfare ensue in this crisply paced, emotionally riveting, and ultimately timeless exploration of personal and political machinations. Danila Kozlovsky, Ksenia Rappoport, and Elizaveta Boyarskaya from 2016’s Cherry Orchard production appear as Ferdinand, Lady Milford, and Louise Miller
