A genius so assured he could write operas faster than secretaries could copy them, a genius so original even Bach cribbed his melodies, a genius so unconventional that his conflicting roles -- Catholic priest and creative renegade; cultural iconoclast and establishment favorite -- still shock people today, Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741) remains an artist without equal. Now he comes to exuberant life in the new drama The Red Priest of Venice at the Shelton Theater. Today best known for The Four Seasons, Vivaldi was one of the most brilliant figures of the baroque period, a composer whose life was as passionate and stormy as his music. Compelling and humorous, this 90-minute show focuses on a critical period in his life when he began writing his most dazzling masterpiece ... and when he fell under the spell of two equally dazzling ladies.

This was my first exposure to Chekhov and I'm not sure I'm a Chekhov person. I think I should've started with a more traditional production. As noted, this is avante garde and a 'radical adaptation'. I felt a little lost (make sure to read the playbill at intermission to see what happens in the missing acts) and a bit overwhelmed by the multimedia aspect. Enjoyed several of the performers. I will investigate other Three Sisters to compare and contrast now.

See or read the original before adventuring into any "modern" adaptations of this play. The acting was weak and the flow of Acts was frustrating (some were on video and some were acted out live). Video quality was extremely poor.
Acts were oddly...continued
