The Caucasian Chalk Circle (Kaukaasia kriidiring)

The Caucasian Chalk Circle (Kaukaasia kriidiring)

Drama with mountains and songs by Bertolt Brecht

Once upon a time…a merciless civil war lays waste to the country and its families. Those who could flee fled, leaving everything behind. Servant girl Gruša saved her life by putting the governor’s son in danger. When the war ends, she has to fight for her child…

In this beautiful work by the great playwright and controversial persona, Bertolt Brecht asks: whom does the child belong to, and whom does the state belong to?
It is a tale of love and the intelligence, a parable and a fable.

Premiere on 23 February 2019 at the Grand Building
