Written by William Shakespeare

Yury Butusov’s brilliant, award-winning staging of King Lear tells us a story in which the collapse of a family, the collapse of a country, and the collapse of an individual are all connected to each other. In Shakespeare’s classic work, Lear imagined himself to be God’s equal – and so he divided his kingdom between his daughters just to see what would happen. Featuring four-time Golden Mask Award-winning actor Konstantin Raikin as Lear.
