Director Gothár ha managed to show the tragedy of a woman in a comic frame, who wants to rake up the desire of his unfaithful husband, and despite her wish she kills him, making thus Fate fulfill, as it regularly happens in Greek tragedies. We see a director’s theatre, which brings the essece of the play to the foreground, following an aesthetics of contrasts: movement vs. fixed moments and tempo rubato, stylization vs. psychological analysis. The performance has a strong rhythm, which we do not experience in many other performances, (it becomes weaker only towards the end, during Heracles’ long speech. The visual side of the performance is as simple as ingenious.
