CORIOLANUS by William Shakespeare

25 October| 18:00 – Bulandra Theatre, Toma Caragiu Hall

The essence of a play in Shakespeare’s vision focuses on the two conflicts: the political, internal one (plebeian – patrician) and an external one (Romans – Volsci). When a general wins the battle against the forces that are about to defeat him, he feels that he needs to become politically active and even become the conductor of the governing ‘orchestra’.
