Opereta

2005-2006 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Opereta - Vitold Gobrovic
Launch: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 25/11/2005

A political play in essence, with the whole history of the 20th century 'running through' it, featuring the decline, decay and deterioration of the ruling class and all forms of rebellion. The writer, with a catalytic humor and several? Absurd? Dialogues, exercises strong criticism in all directions, without basically adopting a firm position. The whole structure is presented through the naivety and merriment of an operetta, that includes songs, sketches, and dancing, which underline the various situations. The play, written in 1966, was a prophecy for May '68 and the hippie movement, through the total nakedness of youth, who renounce civilization and its decline in this way. Such are the messages promoted by this performance, by presenting the modern outcome of those hopes.
