Roberto Zucco is a beautiful, intelligent young man. But also a cruel killer who decided to punish the world without values and without hope. In his play, Bernard Maria Koltés was inspired by the true story of a murderer, whose capture was watched by the whole of France in the late 1980s. The result is a drama about the desire to escape from the world of the walls, bringing a ruthless analysis of fear, but also a romantic ballad about the rebellion of the liberated man and the need to take off for the sun despite hell.
The director of this performance is a young famous Hungarian artist, Attila Vidnyánszky, who recently staged Romeo and Juliet at the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj.
