Nikita Grinshpun, famous for his successful Moscow productions, managed to inflame the actors with ludic theatre. Almost every actor plays two, three or even more roles, and all actors play folk, strange and incomprehensible, singing a song in chorus both in grief and in joy. The performance happily avoided vaudeville style though the audience laughs throughout the play. Through a series of comedian characters, the chorus living in its own almost irrational dimension, a different tone crops up – that of absurd amazement at the way a burbot is caught, at odd mishaps that befell the chorus girl, at the confession of the tragedy actor, funny and spine-chilling at the same time.
