Date of the opening: március 02, 2008

The story is about a life-long journey, about finding and losing our innermost selves, about the fight between the virtual and the real ego, about love and fidelity, treachery and falilure and, last but not least, about the impossibility of the possibility of redemption. Be yourself! – that is the new axiom of modernity, but how can we find our real self which is submerged under innumerable masks? Such a self doesn't exists at all, argues the post-modern, and there is no sense in looking for it. Through Peer Gynt's character, everything that seems to be important for us today, forcefully and authentically is revealed.

Opening date: March 21, 2008.
Running time: 3 hours and 40 minutes with two intermissions.
