Henrietta Weekes reads Anton Chekhov’s “The Lady with the Little Dog.” While vacationing in Yalta, the cynical, philandering Dmitri Gurov meets and seduces Anna Sergeevna, a young woman, who, like Gurov, is unhappily married. Their love affair, intended to be a brief encounter, proves to be anything but, and takes the two of them by surprise. Chekhov’s simple yet powerful depiction of forbidden yet ineluctable love is ranked among his best fiction.

Music: “Andante cantabile,” from String Quartet No 1 in D, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

Directed by Fredric Dannen.
