Caligula (online)
By: Albert Camus
Directed by: Ivan Uryvskyi
Ivan Franko National Drama Theater 

“Caligula” by Albert Camus was directed by Ivan Uryvsky and premiered at the Ivan Franko National Drama Theatre. The Roman emperor Caligula, who ruled during the era of Julius-Claudius, is a symbol of unpunished despotism and immorality. The play highlights the need to eliminate dictatorship and tyranny throughout the world. Petro Bogomazov created a magnificent set for the play, which encourages thoughtful reflection on morality and power. According to the play, Caligula is an all-powerful dictator who decides when events should occur and thrives on the lives and deaths of others.

A show about the power of madness and the madness of power. A necessary and painful reconsideration of a present threatened by the spectre of self-destruction.
