Shakespeare: Macbeth
Guest performance by Cheek by Jowl
Director: Declan Donnellan
Macbeth is the great tragedy of the imagination. A man and a woman, bound together in ambition, are destroyed in a welter of blood. Cheek by Jowl's ensemble conjures Shakespeare's world of witchcraft, ghosts and apparitions in an hallucinatory experience of sound and shadow.

Molnár: Liliom
Guest performance by Schauspielhaus Graz
Director: Viktor Bodó
Viktor Bodó regularly works in Austria and his latest guest direction was a highly successful production of Liliom in Graz. “The director not only succeeds in creating wonderful scenes, such as Liliom’s explosive ascent to heaven, but also deeply moving ones like Juli’s mourning monologue, Liliom’s return and Aunt Hollunder’s grumbling care. Klaus von Heydenaber’s music is brilliant! The performance is surprising and thought-provoking: I warmly recommend it!” /Dolf Stockhausen, Woche, March 17, 2010/

Molnár: Liliom
Guest performance by Schauspielhaus Graz
Director: Viktor Bodó
Ferenc Molnár’s play Liliom was first performed in Budapest in 1909. The work’s career in German began a few years later on the stage of the Theater in der Josefstadt. The director of the present performance is Viktor Bodó who has already earned international success with his productions in Graz (among others Carroll: Alice in Wonderland and Handke: The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other). “Viktor Bodó didn’t add anything to Liliom, and he didn’t take anything away from it either. He unfolded it like a wonderful tale. I have only seen such an autonomous world on a big stage from the greatest directors. I don’t know what the Bodó, also from Graz, chosen among the ten best German performances for the Theatertreffen is like, but this Liliom is phenomenal.” /Tamás Koltai, Élet és Irodalom, April 23, 2010/

“I’ve called Persona a chamber work. It is chamber music –music in which, with an extremely limited number of voices and figures, one explores the essence of a number of motifs. The background is extrapolated, put into a sort of fog. The rest is a distillation...” – wrote Bergman somewhere about his work, in which he analyses the relationship between two women: Elizabeth, a successful actress who became mute during a performance of Elektra, and Alma, the nurse caring for her.
