Premiere "Gamblers XXI", ARTel of ARTists of Sergei Yursky
This performance was the first producing project in post-Soviet Russia. It was shown 60 times on stage of Chekhov Moscow Art Theatre during one and a half year. It was the last theatre work of Evgeny Evstigneyev, who played in “Gamblers XXI” nine times. Then the actor died, and his role was taken over by Sergey Yursky, who was also the director and author of the script. The setting of Gogol’s play was transferred to our days’ Primorskaya Hotel in Sochi.
