Yesterday's opening of Marie Antoinette at the Charlotte Theatre in Seoul/Korea was a big success. Here are two stills from the show: The mob at Marie Antoinette's chamber at Versailles, and the meeting of the Jacobins who decide to let Margrid spy on Marie Antoinette to find proof for high treason.
I am very pleased that the show has found its definite form at last. Based on the historic events of the French revolution it tells a complex and dramatic story. The actresses and half of the audience were in tears when the curtain came down. Nevertheless they jumped up to gave the cast and creative team a long and loud standing ovation.
