VISITING MR. GREEN BY JEFF BARON
Visiting Mr. Green is a warm and simple story with a strong, acute reality that treats the problem of aggression in society without using means of aggression.
The play deals with the lives and destinies of minorities and their struggle tofind their rightful place in a world in which an arrogant majority relegates them to the margins of society. At the same time, the play reveals how minorities themselves mimic the exclusiveness, arrogance and aggression they struggle against.
ANGELIQUE BY JACQUES IBERT
The comic opera Angelique appeared in 1926. By its language, style and expression, it shows plenty of features and ways of Ibert’s music expression. In addition to arias and ensembles, it features acted parts with dramatic fragments. The composer uses language that involves many styles in his try to characterize different nationalities of Angelique’s customers and suitors. This is as a farce, stylish but impudent, academically formulated but also very ironic and sarcastic at times, never exceeding good taste.
The work of Stefan Sablić embraces the dramatic text rather than shies away from it, diving deep to bring out its current meaning. The result is sublime, sharp and clear, a new form of expression suitable for our times.
As an acclaimed director, dramaturge and translator, Stefan Sablić explores contemporary theatrical trends with a persistent search for innovation.
