“We have a very busy year behind us, we worked a lot and the entire company can be proud of what we have achieved,” Director Attila Vidnyánszky said at the season-closing gala.
The company played a total 391 performances from 101 different productions, took its plays to 28 locations across the country, attended 20 international festivals and held one – its annual Madách International Theater Meeting (MITEM), with the participation of more than two dozen prestigious companies from all around Europe.
But its biggest single performance was a religious play, Csíksomlyói Passió, a folk version of The Passion of Christ, an open-air show at the Csíksomlyó Catholic pilgrimage site in Transylvania last August, which in itself had 30 to 35,000 viewers.
