PETER STEIN, IN DIALOGUE WITH GEORGE BANU
The Theatre of Harold Pinter

„Mr. Stein – Germany’s biggest postwar directing star, leader of Berlin’s Schaubühne during its glory days of the 1970s and a critically beloved wunderkind turned self-exiled reviler of the German theater establishment [...] In 2000 he staged the entirety of Goethe’s epic “Faust,” in a 21-hour production that (despite $265 tickets) played to sold-out houses for a year and a half in Hannover, Berlin and Vienna.“ Jonathan Kalb, New York Times, 1st of July, 2007.

Working for over 50-year as a theatre director, winner of the European Theatre Award in 2008, Peter Stein has earned international recognition for the breadth of his theatrical vision, the rigour of his research, the inventiveness of his stagecraft, and his ability to continually renew his art. Among his recent productions are: “Medea” by Euripides (performed at Syracuse and Epidaurus ), ”Electra“ by Sophocles (Epidaurus and New York),”The Demons“ by Dostoievski (Ateliers Berthier, Paris), the operas ”Falstaff" by Verdi (Lyon Opera House), ”Don Giovanni“ by Mozart (Chicago), “Bluebeard's Castle”by Bartok (Scala din Milano), “Lulu“ by Alban Berg (Viena, Lyon and Milano). „Ever since I saw the premiere in London, nearly 50 years ago, I’ve been wanting to stage “The Homecoming”. Perhaps it is Pinter’s darkest play, dealing with the profound dangers within human relationships, and even more in the precarious relations between sexes.” Peter Stein
