ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

This Bluebeard performance is without a white screen, so it is essential to find an interesting site, or a site which can be made interesting, which also gives a major size of a wall surface behind the orchestra. The site can be a traditional concert site (as theatre, operahouse or concert hall) but it also can be something unusual (ex: a factory building, underground tube, forest).

The premier performance happened to be in the major hall of the utmost Hungarian stalagmite cave at Aggtelek.
