Prince Mishkin is an Idiot: Resurrection

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky
directed by Vladimír Morávek

the legendary production of a brilliant novel - the second part of the tetralogy One Hundred Years of the Cobra

The story of Prince Mishkin as a modern-day Don Quixote who comes to St Petersburg to…save it? The pure and naive aristocrat soon faces the challenge of bringing equality to a society which has long since lost its purity and naivety and has nothing but ridicule for the fragility of such a man. This society, though, is itself dangerously fragmenting and falling apart.

This expressive version of Dostoyevsky’s novel, which borders on insanity, was the second part in the legendary tetralogy One Hundred Years of the Cobra. Even today, in this renewed premiere it still offers a powerful and concentrated experience of the alchemy of human passions.

The play won “Production of the Year 2004” in a survey by Divadelní noviny.
