What we are offering here is theatre. But in this dramatic musical theatre production supplemented by dance, there is much more emphasis on the music than in a standard theatrical performance.

We have selected excerpts from a wide variety of genres from the vast palette of Mozart’s oeuvre. Symphonies, divertimentos, masses, serenades, concertos for various instruments, organ fantasies and, of course, several opera excerpts. The pieces of music are played to add certain colours under the text and are intended to support the various dramatic situations, with some of them emerging into the foreground in their own right or even providing the basis for Yvette Bozsik’s choreography in certain scenes – since dance and movement will also be important elements of the production.

The artists of the Yvette Bozsik Company, which, like the orchestra, is also turning 30 this year, play the butlers and maids who rush around the protagonists and know all the secrets those gentlemen and ladies are keeping. Nóra Árva, a regular creative partner of the Budafok Dohnanyi Orchestra, is using her usual taste and sense of proportion to create the sets and costumes that make up the distinctively modern rococo milieu in which the characters exist. Playing under the baton of Guido Mancusi, the BDO will provide the entire live musical foundation.

The key factor that promises to make the production a success, however, is the casting of some of the most outstanding artists from the Hungarian theatre world to portray the exciting and complex characters dreamed up by Choderlos de Laclos. The directing by Gábor Bakos-Kiss builds up this extremely diverse material in a way in which this familiar story has never been staged before.
