One of the highlights of the 10th Theatre Olympics was the Madách Project 2023, a program based on the idea of Attila Vidnyánszky, organised by the University of Theatre and Film Arts in Budapest. Student director George Zamfir wrote to színház.org about his experience of creating the performance.

Attila, one of Verdi’s early opera scores that focus on heroic figures in history, was presented in the Margit Island Theatre on August 12, the second operatic treat, presented at the Eiffel Art Studios on August 22, was Karol Szymanowsky’s King Roger. This opera was one of hundreds of events included in the 2023 Theatre Olympics.
This year's largest theatre festival in Europe closed at the end of June with a festive event at the Margaret Island Open-Air Stage. Here is our video report of the stage performances and the following Midsummer Night's Eve event!

200 young artists arrived in Budapest more than 10 days ago to bring Imre Madách's The Tragedy of Man to life in a unique performance on 23 June, directed by Attila Vidnyánszky. We visited the participants of the 11-language performance at the Eiffel Workshop House.
