Ural Federal University group to perform "Spring Water" "by Turgenev

Ural Federal University's national student theater will produce "Spring Water" by Ivan Turgenev on April 12.

"Spring Water" is one of the most famous creations from the great Russian writer. It explores love and passion as experienced by the hero in his youth.

The novel, which is more than 140 years old, examines the inner world of the human. It represents all the qualities and spirituality of spring.

The play ran for 10 seasons starting in 1992 before taking a 12-year hiatus. It was revived in June.

Turgenev was a well-known Russian novelist, short story writer and playwright. His most famous work, written in 1862, is "Fathers and Sons." He first found success with "A Sportsman's Sketches" in 1852. Turgenev wrote on themes similar to Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, though he brought less of a moral and religious tone to his works than his counterparts.
