The musical sensation of 2023 is back to astonish Dóm Square viewers through another Summer: One Thousand and One Nights, directed by the Kossuth Award winner Tamás Juronics returns! With a cast guaranteed to steal all hearts: starring Nóra Trokán, Barna Bányai Kelemen, Luca Márkus, Bence Tasnádi, Réka Bori, András Stohl and Máté Mészáros; with the show-stopping sets of Nóra Bujdosó and the wonderful animations of János “Madár” Madarász, only at Szeged Open-air Theatre Festival – for five more evenings!
The marvellous and lush fairy-tale world of the One Thousand and One Nights is almost two thousand years old. Now, István Tasnádi, Péter Geszti and András Monori decided to weave some of the Arabian, Persian, Indian and Chinese elements of the old story cycle together to make a magical musical play. In the framing device of this exciting world musical, the lovelorn King Sahriar meets Sehrzad. The slave girl – trying to save her life – begins to recite an intriguing fable. Her tales bring all the legendary heroes of the Orient to life: Harun, the naive prince, Jasmine, the beautiful princess, Ali, the cunning thief, the evil Jafar, and the blabbering Djinn of course. However, the newest piece by the authors of The Jungle Book and The Paul Street Boys, Made in Hungária, and Portugal respectively, is not like any other adaptation. This exotic love story – that has bewitched 24.000 spectators last Summer - is full of dramatic and funny twists and turns, and features certified earworms sure to enchant young and old alike!Megosztom
