Crime and Punishment

Dostoyevsky depicts the human soul like no other. His famous crime novel tells the story of a brutal murder and the investigation that follows. Is there a situation that allows, even demands, the killing of a human?

This question not only fascinates Raskolnikov, but it is equally important for us in a world wounded by raging wars and terrorism.

Michal Dočekal, artistic director of the Czech National Theatre, and dramaturg Iva Klestilová produced this new stage version of the novel especially for the Vígszínház. The Hungarian text is the work of the brilliant writer János Térey.

With this performance we wish to pay homage to the great Russion director Jurij Petrovics who was born 100 years ago.
