About Cherry Orchard Festival
We strive to nurture an environment where impactful, artful experiences contribute directly to the quality of life for everyone, and are embraced as essential for the development and growth of the community.
HOW CHERRY ORCHARD FESTIVAL APPROACHES EACH FESTIVAL SEASON:
We discuss and create art.
We imagine the Festival as a safe place for the open exchange of creativity and dialogue, ideas and participation.
WHAT WE DO:
We want to create a full spectrum of exclusive international programming in the finest and most prestigious venues in New York, bringing new audiences to enjoy, find a sense of wonder and pleasure, be inspired and learn through experiencing the performing arts.
WE CHOSE THE NAME CHERRY ORCHARD BECAUSE:
The name of Anton Chekhov's most famous play conjures up images of spring, and to us means the awakening of cultural sensibilities at the crossroads of the classical and the modern stage.
Since its inception, the Cherry Orchard Festival welcomed over 84,000 people of all ages to productions that had previously been out of their reach.
We spend the fall and winter planning for our upcoming late Spring/Summer Festival season. Each year, we look forward to a new and exciting season!
