Maestro Artist Management presents the US Premiere of the award-winning play “The Elder Son” by the famed Russian playwright, Alexander Vampilov, known for his sharp comedy and profound lyricism. The performance features a star- studded cast of renowned Russian theatre and film actors: Victor Sukhorukov, Agrippina Steklova, Evgeni stychkin, Eygeniya Kregzhde and Yevgeny Pronin.
The bittersweet plot is almost borrowed from an “opera-buffa,” but seen through a profoundly Russian prism. A case of forged identity causes a series of misunderstandings and leads, strangely enough, to love, as a fateful incident forever changes the lives of the characters. The story artfully weaves love and loneliness, mutual understanding and vulnerability, a need for every person to be heard and the significance of things left unsaid.
