The play The Duchess of Malfi, by John Webster, arrives at the Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, with translation and staging by Bruno Bravo, between July 16 and 18, at Sala Estúdio.
The Duchess of Malfi is a tragedy typical of the Jacobin theatrical universe. It tells the story of a Duchess, a widow, who decides to marry, in secret, to Antonio, of a lower class and administrator of her house. Her brothers, upon discovering the fact, begin a revenge, whose disproportionate bloodthirsty and psychological dimension suggests, in Webster’s writing, an exposition on the complex nature of the human being.
Continuing a long tradition of cooperation with the Superior School of Theater and Cinema, D. Maria II receives and presents this show by final year students of the degree in Theater at this school, in the Sala Estúdio. A work that involves students from the various branches of the course: Actors, Scene Design and Production.
Date and time: July 16th to 18th; Fri – Sat, 7:30 pm > Sun, 4:30 pm.
Location: D. Maria II National Theater
