From The Satirikon Theatre, Moscow:

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 4 time Golden Mask Award-winning actor Konstantn Raikin as Lear
