The Art Theatre had now become irreversibly Chekhov’s theatre. The second Chekhov show was Uncle Vanya, on 26 October 1899. This production was anticipated like a holiday. Partly perhaps because it did not have the same stormy success as Seagull, a success which passed quickly – and so it was actually Uncle Vanya which became the best-loved of all Chekhov plays at the Art Theatre. For the Art Theatre company, the staging requirements of the play were in general the same as for Chekhov’s debut for the Art Theatre, while the resolution of the practical problems were essentially the same as with Seagull, only more subtle and perfect.
