Master and Margarita
This summer, acclaimed Russian director Aleksey Burago and The Russian Arts Theater and Studio proudly presents Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita, adapted for the stage by Jean-Claude Van Itallie. Written in secrecy during the darkest period of Stalin’s reign, this cult masterpiece is part love story, part phantasmagoria, and part biting satire. On a hot spring day, the Devil pays a visit to Moscow. His retinue includes a naked witch, a fanged assassin, a vodka swigging black cat, and a slew of other dazzling characters who soon wreak havoc among the cultural elite. But the Devil’s mission quickly becomes entangled with the fate of the Master — a tortured writer who has turned his back on his former life and taken refuge inside a lunatic asylum — and his lover, Margarita, who decides to sell her soul to save him.
Directed by Aleksey Burago
Adapted for the stage by Jean-Claude Van Itallie from a translation by Sergei Kobiakoff
