Moscow on Thursday: High Culture for All

Tenir le Temps (To Hold Time, Uderzhivaya Vremya), French choreographer Rachid Ouramdane’s new staging of a Moskva Ballet production.

Take the cultural high road with The Duchess of Malfi, a play that was filmed and is being shown in English with Russian subtitles. John Webster's play begins as a love story, with a duchess who marries beneath her class, and ends as a nightmarish tragedy as her two brothers exact their revenge, destroying themselves in the process. Dominic Dromgoole's 2014 staging for Shakespeare's Globe Theater starring Gemma Arterton.

Formula Kino Gorizont. 21/10 Komsomolsky Prospekt. Metro Frunzenskaya. 800-250-8025. At 7:30 p.m.

Or go forward in time for the Moscow Autumn festival of contemporary music. In the program are new chamber compositions by the Russian composers Sidorova, Levadny, Borodayev and others.

Dom Kompozitorov. House of Composers. 8 Bryusov Pereulok. Metro Pushkinskaya. 495-629-1365. At 7 p.m.

If that doesn't suit, you might try Tenir le Temps (To Hold Time, Uderzhivaya Vremya), French choreographer Rachid Ouramdane's new staging of a Moskva Ballet production.

Meyerhold Center. 23 Novoslobodskaya Ulitsa. Metro Mendeleyevskaya. 495-363-1048. At 7 p.m.

Finally, anyone interested in current events should attend How to Write About Russia?, a debate by editors of three foreign and one Russian publication. Organized by Le Courrier de Russie, it ends — happily, we presume — with a buffet including special treats from Siberia.

Le Courrier de Russie. 10 Milyutinsky Pereulok, Bldg. 1. Metro Lubyanka, Chistiye Prudy. 916-924-2280. At. 7 p.m. Free admission.
