W. Shakespeare: King Lear

Of all of Shakespeare’s dramas, King Lear needs to be ushered into the landscape more than any other, and, as Kott observed, even the most daring set design is an arbitrary and inadequate decoration.  King Lear’s introduction into the landscape and choice of time-frame constantly raise the question: When and where?

LOCATION: Fortress Minor, Mali Brijun
LANGUAGE: Croatian
SUBTITLES: English
PRODUCTION: Theatre Ulysses
DURATION: 3,5 hours, one interval

 

The most prolific performance of the Ulysses Theater, Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” which has been remarkably successful since the founding of the theatre in 2001, is part of the repertoire of this season in Ulysses, in Fort Minor on Mali Brijun. The title role of King Lear is played by Rade Serbedzija, to whom this is one of the favourite roles in his career.

The show has achieved exceptional success among audiences and official reviews and has become the Ulysses trademark. Interest for the performance still remains unchanged and for the 19th year in a row, it is part of the season with number of perfomances. So far, the play has been performed 81 times in front of the sold out audiences. The performance already starts when the audience enters the boat sailing from Fazana to Mali Brijun where the performance continues in the unique ambience of Mali Brijuni and at several locations in Fort Minor.
