2013-2014 National Theatre of Northern Greece
The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui - Bertolt Brecht
Opening: Vassiliko Theatre, 27/10/2013
Written in 1941, Brecht’s text is based thematically on the rise and fall of the Third Reich, by comparing the fascist mentality of Hitler and his circle with the behaviour of the underworld of the trade unions or of the monopolies of the so-called globalization of the market. It is a clear denunciation by the great writer of trickery in any form and also of the unfeeling exploitation of the common man by crime syndicates. Arturo Ui, a serious play and as topical as ever, combines Brechtian dialectic with elements of German cabaret and American musicals, in a production that aims to combine the euphoria of a highly entertaining experience with a hard look at politics. This is the first staging of Brecht’s play by NTNG
