Director David Fishelson transforms Dostoyevsky's
The Brothers Karamazov and
The Idiot into spellbinding drama that illuminates both titanic novels.
In The Brothers Karamazov, the passionate brothers spring to life, led by their roué of a father who entertains himself by drinking, womanizing, and pitting his three sons against each other. The men have plenty to fight over, including the alluring Grushenka.
In The Idiot, we meet the kindly, childlike Prince Myshkin as he returns to the decadent social whirl of 1860s St. Petersburg. The two most beautiful, sought-after women in the city compete for his affections, in a duel that grows increasingly dangerous.
