VERS LA FLAMME
Martha Clarke, Director
Christopher O'Riley, pianist
Music by Alexander Scriabin
Stories by Anton Chekhov

"Love, longing, folly, angst -- the world of Chekhov takes flight in the tableaux and movement embodied by six performers. Martha Clarke (The Garden of Earthly Delights) has created a wordless evocation of Chekhov's tales, magically illuminated through the strong, modern light of Scriabin's piano repertoire."
This was part of the Lincoln Center Great Performers series.
