“Prepare yourself for an amazing emotional journey and to enjoy the brilliant and involving performance of the super talented cast masterfully directed by Maestro Aleksey Burago...We can’t help ourselves but to fall in love with Konstantin and Nina...The invisible and yet distinctively recognizable touch of Maestro Burago is what undisputedly makes this version of ‘the Seagull’ an experience you surely do not want to miss out!”

“Vividly staged by the esteemed theater director Burago...The cast in this enthusiastic and engaging production makes Chekhov’s drama accessible and relatable...The acting by the cast, while adroit and appealing, demonstrates a gamut of skills...The rich sound effects and musical arrangements add the leisure flare to the otherwise serious and deep conflicts at the heart of the play. They also help with the phonetic variations from the multilingual cast.”
