It is also undoubtedly a daring enterprise on a world scale – only a very few producers have tried to open the reality described by Marquez that some have defined as "magical realism" with the means available in a theatre.
The novel that was published in 1967 making its author immediately world-famous tells us the seven-generation long story of the Buendia family. In parallel we get to follow the history of a town created by Marquez, Macondo, through wars, drought, the emergence of railways and cinema till the town's decadence. The author’s wonderful storytelling talent conveys supernatural events, myths, exoticism and prejudice in the same sense as daily routines and this gives this story a special charm.
Presented with one interval.
