Another example of how even the lesser known operas of Donizetti are being staged in an ever widening circle of theatres, in this instance in the Perm Tchaikovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre, Perm being a city well to the east of Moscow. 

The operas were performed on separate nights. The Broken Cup was an adaptation of Rita by Yury Dimitrin.As can be seen from some of the photographs, for the productions, the theatre foyer was used as the main stage with the chamber orchestra on the balcony and other action taking place in the adjoining corridors and balustrades.
