The authoress is dealing with studying several variations of the performances of Chekhov's play 'Seagull' in the Slovak professional theatres. She is emphasizing the meaning of 'first - climbing' done by Milos Pietor in his staging in the theatre of Martin in 1963, and she is stressing that the director returned to this title two more times (in 1963 at 'Nova scena' (New Scene ) with excellent Magda Vasaryova as Nina Zarechna and in 1988 in 'Stúdio Novej sceny' (New Scene Study)) and each of his staging was different by its conception, corresponding to the social situation and situation of the Slovak spectator. Among staging that originated after 1990, the authoress of the study is praising as relatively most interesting the performance done by a dramaturgist of the theatre in Nitra S. Sprusansky who did not prepare the staging in one of the theatre halls of the Theatre of A. Bagar, but in surroundings of a stock of coulisses, as a story of people from the back stage. The second strongly accentuated topic of the staging was the issue of fame and success. The authoress is in this connection pointing at extraordinary well mastered acting of Eva Vecerova featuring Arkadinova.
