The Vakhtangov theatre established a new high level of Chekhov’s interpretation which is beyond the reach for other theatres. Rimas Tuminas inspected the characters of ‘Uncle Vanya’ in a bright sunlight. His judgement was precise and strict. The actors perform their parts in a sharp and grotesque style. It’s a modern tragedy with satiric and burlesque elements. Public enjoy the show and often laughs but the irony is that it might be the most pessimistic interpretation.
