Einstein And Margarita

A play about a great love and the atomic bomb.
Starring Ksenia Rappoport and Alexei Serebryakov

Directed by Alexander Marin
Written by Alexander Gelman
Set design: Alexey Serebryakov
Costumes: Svetlana Tegin
Choreography: Maria Serebryakova
In 1935, Princeton University commissioned a sculpture of Albert Einstein. The sculptor, Russian emigré Sergey Konenkov, arrived to Princeton with his wife Margarita, who began a wild affair with the world-famous physicist, lasting until August 1945. After the U.S. has just dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Einstein blames himself for his part in the creation of nuclear weapons, when Margarita informs him that in a week, after many years in America, she and her husband are returning to the Soviet Union for good.

Based on the recently discovered letters written by Albert Einstein to Margarita Konenkova, this play by playwright Alexander Gelman details the last days of the secret lovers' time together. The audience is invited into Einstein's Princeton's residence, an intimate setting where terrible words will be spoken and a terrible secret will be revealed.
Celebrated actors Ksenia Rappoport and Alexei Serebryakov have previously worked on several films, but this is the first time they share a theater stage together.
