In the 1930s, the Soviet Union was run uncompromisingly and cruelly by Joseph Stalin. In an atmosphere of persecution, pressure and violence, Mikhail Bulgakov wrote the remarkable novel “The Master and Margarita”. It was published in its entirety 40 years later, and the questions it asks are still relevant today.

Nikolay Polyakov’s staging based on the novel is like a time capsule in which the fates of ordinary people, the Devil and his impressive retinue, Pontius Pilate and Jesus Christ, and two lovers – the Master and Margarita Nikolaevna – are intertwined. The performance masterfully combines the satirical, mystical and philosophical layers of the novel in a surprising and phantasmagorical scenic form.
