is important for me as a play about redemption. In fact, it is the sacred level of the drama that interests me. The three sisters are actually three projections of the same woman: the child, the woman and the mother who have to stay together in order to survive. The Father’s ghost floats around them; they cannot escape from him and they don’t want to. The Son also appears as the sisters, at the beginning of the play, experience the arrival of Vershinin in an almost messianic way. In him they see the saviour, the embodiment of Moscow. Finally, the Holy Spirit is also present, identifiable in the consolation arising from the ‘solemnity of weeping,’ the suffering which the characters have to embrace, each in their different ways. I am also attracted by the musicality of Three Sisters
, which connects it to the absurd plays which I like so much. This musicality, like any other symphonically structured work, demands a high precision and an accuracy of tone, colour, atmosphere, shading and an intense spiritual identification.” Gábor Tompa
