Titus Andronicus

by William Shakespeare
Directed by: Brian Michaels

Roman commander Titus Andronicus returns from the war against the Goths. He follows an ancient tradition and sacrifices the eldest son of surrendered Goth queen Tamora, thus incurring her hatred. As a consequence of the welcome ceremony gone wrong – Titus's daughter Lavinia refusing to marry the newly crowned emperor Saturnine – Tamora becomes the new empress and, together with her secret lover Aaron, embarks on a vendetta against the Andronici. When those find out that they are not victims of destiny, but of madness gone out of control, they plan a retaliation of enormous brutality.

Press excerpts

"Colour, light and sound: three sources of the performance, three gates for entering the labyrinth of drama, three artistic ways to explore the obscurity of the human being and of the world within them, equally exciting and enticing. In Titus Andronicus by William Shakespeare, directed by Brian Michaels and stage design by Ioana Popescu, the premiere at the German Theatre, the colour, the deep red of the bloodshed, holds the main role."
