Opera in 4 acts
What happens when a full play is cut to the bare essentials? When only the text necessary to move the story and express the characters’ feelings and motives stays? When the plot is told in telegraphic economy?
Pink Vanya is our second installment of Uncle Vanya by Chekhov. The play is turned into a libretto: short, factual, nothing more, nothing less.
