The Chekhov Festival began on May 14 with a theatrical version of Joseph Haydn's Creation oratorio by the famous Spanish troupe La Fura dels Baus, which always astounds the audience with fantastical extravaganzas.

The playbill also includes: The Cherry Orchard, directed by Alessandro Serra, Italy; the Life show by the Aditi Mangaldas Dance Company (India); Distopia, a drama by Patricia Guerrero (Spain), about strong and yet vulnerable women; Tango After Dark by German Cornejo’s Dance Company (Argentina); Folia (France), a dramatized dialog between Baroque music and hip-hop dance; Boule De Suif, a show based on the novel by Guy de Maupassant and staged by the State Theater “Amazgain” named after Sos Sargsyan (Armenia); Samuel Beckett's Endgame tragicomedy, performed by the Shota Rustaveli State Drama Theatre (Georgia); The World Rests On Love, a concert by the Alim Qasimov Ensemble (Azerbaijan); the Israeli rendition of The Three Sisters; Les Hauts Plateaux, a flying performance by Les Mains Les Pieds et La Tête Aussi (France); and Jo Kanamori's Traces Garden (Japan).

This year's Festival will have an all-new format: it will last for an entire year instead of the traditional two months.
