About event

Why go to the play "Gedda Gabler"?

1. Learn what is common with the magical Hedda and the ancient Greek avenger Medea.
2. To see how the love triangle ends, in which there is no true love.
3. Enjoy the professional production of one of the most successful plays of the founder of the "new drama" G. Ibsen.

This time, the Golden Gate Theater will present a play to the viewer in which a completely atypical love triangle will be played.

A woman who is alien to everything feminine, a man is an ordinary example of a man who knows what he wants from life and easily points his wife to "her place", and the new-old beloved. All this is a tragic story of the new Medea, described by the Norwegian playwright Heinrich Ibsen “Hedda Gabler”.

The only thing that distinguishes Hedda from ancient Greek Medea is the complete absence of passion. She does not love Tesman's husband, because she got married, because “it is necessary”. She does not feel an intimate attachment to the “old love” of Levborg, because the very fact of closeness is disgusting to her, like all earthly things. She is unhappy, driven into the frame of a simple woman whose fate is home and children. Hedda dreams of something high, worthy of the ideal of her father.

It would seem that Hedda’s gray life ended when a guest from the past, the talented scientist Levborg, appeared on the threshold of the house. But he becomes only her unsuccessful attempt to assert itself. She will suffer and make everyone around suffer. Is this supposed to be love? Who are we to judge ...
