Lawyers relay videos of rehearsals and feedback while Kirill Serebrennikov awaits trial
It has been a productive year so far for the Russian director Kirill Serebrennikov. His Gogol Centre continues to be one of Moscow’s best theatres, his cinematic homage to the 1980s Leningrad rock music scene impressed audiences at Cannes and he is preparing a new production of Così fan tutte to premiere at the Zurich Opera House next month.
It’s all the more impressive because Serebrennikov has spent the entire year under house arrest. As rehearsals for Così fan tutte got under way in Zurich in recent weeks, the production’s director was sitting more than 1,000 miles away, confined to his Moscow apartment.
