La Cerisaie by Anton Tchekhov
LA CERISAIE (The Cherry Orchard) atthe Comédie Française
By Anton Tchekhov
Staged by Clément Hervieu-Léger
After having staged Molière and Goldoni, Jean-Luc Lagarceand Frank Wedekind, Clément Hervieu-Léger has chosen this drama, which represents an echo to our society’s evolutions, a mirror of the intricacies of our lives : « I believe in the virtues of the classical repertoire, once we consider it as a common property which allows us to enlarge our vision of society and how we sign into History ».
The stage-director has nurtured intimately this version of The Cherry Orchard for such a long time.
It is with a pure company spirit that he has committed himself, with his fellow comedians, to this drama that sublimates the natural and the sensitivity.
