This research discusses a set of Brazilian staging of the major dramatic works of the Russian writer Anton Chekhov: The Cherry Orchard, directed by Ivan de Albuquerque (1932 - 2001), 1968; The Three Sisters, directed by José Celso Martinez (Teatro Oficina), 1972; The Cherry Orchard, directed by Jorge Tacla, 1982; The Seagull, directed by Daniela Thomas, 1998; Seagull - Theme for a short story, directed by Enrique Diaz (Cia dos Atores), 2007.Chekhov's plays are staged all over the world, composing a benchmark of innovative scenic proposals. With this study, I want to understand how these classic plays of Western theater were greeted by artists and audience in Brazil. It is, therefore, a search of scene analysis and dramaturgy, contextualized by the history of Brazilian theater.
