Synetic Theater Season

Synetic Theater is has revealed its 2023/24 season, boasting an array of five captivating mainstage productions. The line-up features a spine-tingling new version of The Tell-Tale Heart, and marks the triumphant return of the much-adored Romeo & Juliet.

"As we unveil Synetic's 2023/24 season, I am filled with excitement and anticipation for what's to come," remarked Synetic co-founder and Artistic Director Paata Tsikurishvili. "I am particularly eager to return to my director's chair and lead us into a season that perfectly balances the innovative, boundary-pushing work we are known for with beloved, classic Synetic productions."

The season opens with an intriguing adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart, signaling Tsikurishvili's reappearance as a director. This production engrosses the audience with its sinister atmosphere, macabre humor, and spellbinding visuals as an odd old man and his guardian plunge into a vortex of madness and homicide.

Additionally, Synetic's applauded rendition of Romeo & Juliet makes its return. In this inventive "Silent Shakespeare" production, dialogue is stripped away and replaced with a dramatic backdrop of a massive clock's gears. The star-crossed lovers grapple with time and destiny in a fervent, poetic display. This production is lauded for its electrifying atmosphere and Synetic's mastery in combining imaginative design with avant-garde storytelling.

Synetic's delightful holiday spectacle, Snow Maiden, is back after last season's triumphant premiere, regaling audiences with the tale of a solitary boy's yearning for companionship during the frosty winter months. Alongside it, inspired by Aleksandr Pushkin's tale, The Tale of the Fisherman and the Golden Fish spins a poetic, cautionary tale of love and avarice, through mesmerizing pantomime. These enchanting productions will run concurrently during the holiday season, promising a cornucopia of magical narratives and heartfelt adventures for all ages.

Furthermore, Synetic Theater reaffirms its commitment to youth development with an array of award-winning outreach programs, including the Teen Company program, student performances, and a variety of holiday camps. Learn more at
