The Little Tragedies, a modern poetic interpretation of Alexander Pushkin’s nineteenth-century Russian masterpiece about free will, fate, and the human obsessions that continue to haunt us two hundred years after the four “little tragedies” were first written.

Encompassing themes of vice and virtue, money and rivalry, love and death, Pushkin’s poetry has long been considered particularly difficult to approach in translation. This production is designed to bring Pushkin’s genius to a non-Russian speaking audience and uses the acclaimed English translation by Nancy Anderson.

Renouned Stanislavsky’s Method master Slava Stepnov of New York’s STEPS Theatre Company offers a version of Pushkin’s lyrical drama, exploring it by means of live music, drama, and dance. This production marks the New Zealand premiere of The Little Tragedies and offers a rare chance to experience the depth and peculiarity of classic Russian poetry.
