GOGOLREVIZOR

GOGOLREVIZOR

MITEM

Director: Viktor Ryzhakov

MITEM

1 hours 50 minutes, without breaks.

As if we were in a club of a small Russian town today where the grotesque Gogolian characters multiply and speak our contemporary language. The virtuoso performance of the young cast provides the audience with a new understanding of this classic piece. The production is the creation, based on Gogol's play, of months of rehearsals by these creative minds. This intensive, irresistibly funny and at the same time shocking performance proves that Gogol's play – first performed in Saint Petersburg in 1836 and put on stage almost continuously ever since all over the world – always has something to say. Russia's most famous theatrical academy, the Moscow Art Theatre-Studio, adapted Gogol's play on stage with its students in Victor Ryzhakov's reinterpretation. Gogol.revizor comes to Budapest MITEM after several successful festival productions.
