‘The monument of a lion’, Aliona Karas (Rossiyskaya gazeta)

The bitter-sweet and dark grotesque music by Faustas Latenas guides all the play by Anton Chekov staged by Rimas Tuminas. The melody either forms a tender background, or distracts the public becoming the main character in a specific mechanic opera theatre. During the past century the writings by Anton Chekov and the way of their interpretation seem to become something solid, frozen and mechanic. Rimas Tuminas shows us a beautiful irony about it. He even includes the most theatrical and classical elements, for example the actors address directly to the audience from time to time.
