About the show

Classic Stage Company presents this Turgenev's masterpiece starring Peter Dinklage about a quiet country estate and the seductive tutor who destroys it. More…

Turgenev’s masterpiece chronicles the comic and erotic turmoil that befalls an otherwise quiet country estate when a handsome young tutor arrives to teach Natalya Petrovna’s young son. Soon Natalya is interested in a tutelage of another kind, much to the consternation of her husband and her long suffering friend, Rakitin, who is hopelessly and secretly smitten with her. A beautifully nuanced meditation on the nature of unrequited love.
