Bulgarian National Theatre (2006 Season)

Thu, Oct 19, 2006 @ 7:00 PM, Lobero Theatre

U.S. Premiere! “A collage of epochs, morals and moods.” Now Newspaper Recent recipient of the Best Production of the Year Award, presented by Bulgaria’s Ministry of Culture for her production of Othello, director Lilia Abadjieva is renowned for her brilliant re-interpretations of Shakespeare plays. With a skillful mix of parody and satire, her inspired adaptation of Romeo and Juliet uses unconventional stylistics with delightful results. With the roles played only by men (as in Elizabethan theatres), the characters speaking in contemporary jargon, and passions flailing against a background of popular rock music hits, Abadjieva reveals unexpected meaning in beloved texts.
