Drama comedy about people in times of social upheaval. The widowed noblewoman Lyubov Andreyevna Ranyevskaya returns with her daughter to her Russian estate, which is surrounded by a magnificent cherry orchard, after a long stay in France. Overwhelmed by the beauty of the cherry blossom and the childhood memories connected with it, Ranevskaya does not want to admit the high indebtedness of the property and the threatening forced auction. Amélie Niemeyers has conjured up a festival of transformation with an excellent ensemble and lots of music.
Please note that theatre performances are in German language if not described otherwise.
