Act 3 – Finale, A lonely spot overlooking the Volga River, Night.
Review: Andre Barbe's abstract set design is a huge, sharply angled wooden parabola, its barren starkness underlining the oppressive provincialism of the Russian town. In addition to presenting some stunning visuals, Donald Edmund Thomas's remarkable lighting was most evocative in suggesting the characters' interior motivations.
