“Wuthering Heights” were written by the English author Emily Bronte in 1847, when she was only 27 years old. Being one of the most famous works of world literature, it has been adapted for theatre, cinema, opera, musical and ballet.
The characters are the members of two families living in isolated houses in the moorlands of Yorkshire and are marked by the love between Heathcliff and Catherine. Bronte presents the story of their destruction, bringing to the surface the desperate and passionate depths of human existence, in manner that reminds of ancient tragedy.
Yannis Kalavrianos, who collaborates for the first time with the National Theatre of Northern Greece, adapts for theatre and directs the Victorian novel.
He notes that there could be no better description of the novel than the words of the English poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti: “The action is laid in hell – only it seems places and people have English names there”
