Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the most inflammatory enactment of King Lear! A show of provocative modernity, conferred by a fascinating visual inventiveness, an electrifying music, elements creating the aesthetics of one of the most innovative theatre directors of the moment, Georgian David Doiashvili.
A show about a collapsing kingdom, about children betraying their parents, about plots behind the scenes and palace coups. „Get yourself some glass eyes, and pretend to see things you can't, like a crooked politician!”, exclaims a character with sadness. An enactment in which Shakespeare’s text acquires extremely contemporary connotations, depicting a world in which truth is punished and madmen are leading the blind.
With an excellent cast manifesting itself volcanically, tragically and playfully altogether, King Lear of NTB is a show capable of stirring a multitude of sensations, where you shall certainly not get bored at any moment.
