The Juliusz Osterwa Theatre
Krzysztof Babicki @en
Love in Crimea by Slawomir Mrozek is a story about powerful Russia which changes under the influence of historical events and human feelings which in spite of passing time maintain their grandness and truthfulness. Epochs change, protagonists change, but Love and Nature remain unchanged.
People shape history, destroy themselves and try to destroy love, but this force – unthreatened by anything – persists. Mrozek flavored this beautiful historical fresco with his distinctive humour and irony. There resound the echoes of Chekhov’s characters, accompanied by the lightness of dialogues and particular Slavonic longing.
