Rocco and His Brothers

Based on the screenplay of Rocco and his brothers

Happiness, making a living and a career are what the five Parondi brothers Vincenzo, Simone, Rocco, Ciro and Luca hope to achieve. Following their father's death, they decide to move with their mother from their village in the South of Italy to booming Milan sometime in the early 1950s. The family’s path is marked out by moving to the city, defying their destiny, fighting it, and the hope of returning to their village.

Euripides

MEDEA

There are universal themes and figures that keep coming back in new guises. In reality, we know little about them, their characters are shrouded in mystery, but through them, we can express ourselves and our age. One such figure is Euripides’ Medea, the unfortunate, betrayed, loving – in Babits's words, "always modern" – woman who commits an inhumane act of jealousy: she takes the lives of her own children. In spite of what she does, Euripides attempts to achieve the impossible by getting his audience to sympathise with this desperate heroine battling against her demons.

Tartuffe, a profoundly religious figure, is gaining influence in the wealthy home of the Orgons, and is about to cheat Orgon out of his fortune and get his daughter's hand in the process. Soon everyone sees through Tartuffe's tricks – except Orgon. The family come up with a plan to catch the fraudster out. A simple comedy plot, implemented ingenuously by none other than the brilliant genius of the history of drama: Molière.

Cat's Play

The comedy of passing away

"We humans can only suffer and be happy in one way, whether we’re at the beginning or at the end of our lives,"

says István Örkény in the Preface to his tragicomedy "The Cats Play". When we hold a photo of our youth, it seems that our life can be captured in a moment of self-abandonment, and though the years go by, our passion and pain remain just as alive inside...

The prompter

What are we going to do without the prompter? What can we do if there is no one to help, there is no one to rely on when we’re in trouble? Who is this prompter who always sits in the dark, with their back toward us, alone, and yet we look to this person to help us out of botched, hopeless situations?

Gabriel García Marquez

Chronicle of a Death Foretold

The title of Gabriel García Marquez’s novella Chronicle of a Death Foretold gives away the end of the story. We haven't actually begun to read the text, but we already know where it is headed; we know that the murder is inevitable. What is really interesting about this story is how we get to the deed. What are the coincidences, the small and seemingly insignificant actions or lack thereof leading to Santiago Nasar’s death?

Director: Nándor Berettyán

Andor Szilágyi

Oleander and Flax Blossom

I wanted to write a classical fairy tale that is instructive in every way. It has a hero we can relate to, an antagonist "loathed by the public", and a number of main and supporting characters showing human qualities ​​that can be acquired and lost. (Andor Szilágyi)

The Kodály Method

A co-production with the Gyula Illyés Beregszasz National Theatre

Tell me what songs you sing and I’ll tell you who you are. The melodies and fragments that vibrate on within us reveal things about us that no psychoanalysis can uncover. They shine a light in the hidden nooks and crannies of the soul otherwise inaccessible to us.

Director: Attila Vidnyánszky Jr.
