Ensemble

Rossini in The Quarry

'The Barber of Seville'
at an unusual venue in Hungary,
praised by ANETT FODOR

 

Having entered the grounds of the Quarry Theatre in Fertőrákos, Hungary, I was astonished. Huge, overpowering grey boulders protrude skywards and made me remember the forced labour workers who toiled and suffered there in the twentieth century; many of them were to lose their lives. Some strange, ambiguous feelings came over me. Was this really a suitable venue for an opera buffa, I wondered?..
