The Government Inspector
Best Implemented Theatre Set Design
About the project
As times change and generations come and go, human vices and passions remain the same.
Gogol's The Government Inspector is surely laughter through tears — a sharp, well-aimed ridicule and a timeless classic. Anton Svit, a young director from St. Petersburg, staged the play in the modern style, which gave it a new topicality. A comedy of errors depicting a certain historical period turns into an exaggerated and eccentric game with realities of life in Russia. The stage design continues it through an almost grotesque antithesis of a huge and luxurious crystal chandelier and the infinite vastness that literally occupies the entire stage.
