Satan turns up in Moscow, with an entourage of a speaking cat and other strange creatures. People start disappearing mysteriously, witches fly through the air, and suddenly we are in biblical times. The surrealistic story of Bulgakov’s novel, The Master and Margarita, comes to life in a unique musical form in Levente Gyöngyösi’s opera-musical: “I have long wanted to write a work that synthesizes diverse stylistic elements from contemporary and popular music. Something that is also accessible, thoroughly worked out and modern – an attempt at making boundaries disappear.” Directed by Vajk Szente, who is at home in musical theatre both as an actor and director, the production has a special form that brings in mind musicals, and features the artists of the Hungarian National Ballet and the Hungarian Acrobat Association.

An opera-musical in two acts, in Hungarian, with English surtitles.

The performance is not recommended for audiences under the age of 16.

This performance of the Liszt Fest is a joint event of the Hungarian State Opera and Müpa Budapest.
