This play was created by Gennady Trostyanetsky Mikhail Chekhov Riga Russian Theater named and its actors. The text was born out of the staging director’s love for the Russian literature and the inspired co-creation of the entire ensemble’s at the rehearsals – in order to both pay tribute to the classics and to please the audience with a modern, spectacular, ironic and relevant production about the conflict of principles and circumstances.

What should one choose: love or money? Resistance or submission? Sincerity or calculation? Is it possible not to choose – perhaps, everything would unfold on its own? Is it possible to change a choice – and to betray a choice? And what does Italian opera have to do with anything, after all?

Those, who have read the play "A Profitable Position" by Alexander Ostrovsky, will probably recognize the plot, and those, who know the play "The Case" by Alexander Sukhovo–Kobylin, will meet "old friends"; however, there will still be many surprises and unexpected turns in the story.
