French romantic composer Hector Berlioz goes to see his childhood love Estelle Duboeuf and proposes to elope with the decent grandmother, taking her away from her family. They recall the passion of their youth, buried deep later on, conforming to conventions. But it’s never too late to “stop time”. True love lives on agelessly in everyone, it just takes courage to experience it.

Director: Zoltán Rátóti

THEY KNOW WHAT LOVE IS

Sándor Petőfi

- Beside the poem's charm and humour, this production is also about the Berehove company, i.e. that theatre is a means of cultural survival. We do not rearrange Petőfi's poem, but we start from the premise that the members of this company are sitting here with their suitcases because of the war and cannot be at home. Petőfi, who appears on stage, quotes from the Transcarpathian passages of his Travel Letters and we think of home... This is a playful and free performance, our contribution to the Petőfi memorial year celebrating the 200th anniversary of the poet's birth.

Director: Attila Vidnyánszky

A mystery play about the life of Count János Esterházy

Count, politician, father and martyr – János Esterházy is one of the few 20th century statesmen who set an example for us, despite his tragic life. The National Theatre presents the trajectory of the 'Star of the Uplands' (present-day Southern Slovakia) to mark the Memorial Year commemorating the 120th anniversary of the birth of 'God's Servant János Esterházy'.

Director: Ödön Rubold

József Katona

- We couldn't perform or revive the 2017 version due to the pandemic, so I decided to create a new performance bringing new ideas, this time with young people. When I started working on the production in 2002, I had the feeling that the world was changing. And by now, the world has changed - radically and irrevocably. And we Hungarians must come once again face-to-face with the issues that have been challenging us for a thousand years: division, discord and hatred, passed down through the generations. What's going on in the world today? What is happening to us? Whose interest does that serve? How does the next generation, how do young people relate to their ancestors' self-perpetuating conflicts?
