‘Goncharivka Matchmaking’, January 24, Zankovetska Drama Theatre, beginning at 18.00
This January will welcome the arrival of a fresh new stage adaptation to Lviv’s theatrical repertoire. Staged at the city’s historic Zankovetska Drama Theatre, ‘Goncharivka Matchmaking’ is based on a play by regional playwright Kvytka-Osnovyjanenko, the performance contains a series of social observations which remain as acute and entertaining today as they were hundreds of years ago. The story follows two lovers, Uljana and Oleksiy, as they stumble and fumble their way to eventual happiness. Set to music composed by Sergiy Rudey, the result is a charming and heartwarming performance that features songs, humour and some splendid costumes. The performance premiere was dedicated to the 70th birthday of the Zankovetska Theatre’s celebrated art director Fedir Stryhun. For tickets please visit the box office at the theatre (1, L. Ukrainka Street.)
