 The Chekhov International Festival will celebrate the UK-Russia Year of Culture 2014 with a sparkling summer season of British theatre. In May and June 2014 they will present a mixed bill of drama and dance from some of the finest UK companies.

This will include a co-production by National Theatre of Scotland/RSC; Scottish Ballet featuring Matthew Bourne’s Highland Fling amongst other contemporary dance pieces; Sadler’s Wells’ new piece by leading choreographer Russell Maliphant, new work by the award-winning dance-theatre company Gecko.

Shakespeare’s Globe theatre will tour Russia for the very first time, bringing productions from their hit 2013 season to Moscow and several other Russian cities in what will no doubt be a highlight of the Year of Culture programme.
