Opera Mafioso

Vasil Stanilov, Director: Gaga Goshadze


Comedy in 1 Act

What can happen when Mafiosi go to the theatre to carry out their plans and the director of the theatre can do nothing but obey? The company is forced to stage an opera commissioned by Mafiosi. At the same time, intrigues are woven and seemingly desperate circumstances prevail. Grotesque criminal world in front of exaggeratedly comic artists and a premiere that holds surprises for both sides.
