Masquerade

Luminato 2019

One of Moscow’s oldest theatre companies returns with a show that will sweep you off your feet and into a storm of intrigue, hidden truths, and heaps of snow.

Based on the writings of Mikhail Lermontov, one of Russia’s most important 19th century poets, the tragi-farce Masquerade uncovers the real moralities of modern society behind the masks that everyone wears. Discover scandalous love affairs and squandered opportunities; exposed lies, truths, and the words that can kill. Literally.
