Event Description
The Russian Theater of Houston

Production by the Russian Theater of Houston - for the first time in Austin.
The concert style musical evening based on the poetry and prose by the famous Russian writer IVAN BUNIN
The composition “A dream again, enchanting and sweet one……” (Снова сон, пленительный и сладкий) was performed first in Houston, Texas in 2017.  It includes the finest examples of Bunin’s poetry and two of his most famous short stories: “In Paris” and “Dark Alleys” converted into stage mini-plays.  The background of the composition is the music by L. Beethoven, F. Chopin, I. Schwartz, songs and romances using the lyrics by Bunin himself and also by A. Pushkin and B. Okudghava.

After Intermission, you will be invited to a Musical Reception to listen more songs and enjoy hot tea and pasties in Russian style.  Our Houston guests will perform a few songs from the program dedicated to St. Petersburg: “Oh, my elusive city ....” (О, город мой неуловимый….).  That includes lyrics by I. Annenskiy, B. Akhmadullina, A. Gorodnitsky and others.
