Date of the opening: July 06, 2022
It ended up being called Young Barbarians. It is not our intention to recount the lives of Bartók and Kodály, it would be impossible, and it is certainly not our intention to tell a story or write a musical. In fact, our endeavor is aimless, it goes nowhere, we have found no message or things to say, there will be no protagonists and no lesson to learn at the end, we will try to talk as little as possible. We were seeking echoes that could resonate today as much as they did a hundred years ago.

Opening dates:
July 6th 2022 (Cluj, Romania)
July 9th 2022 (Gyula, Hungary)
