(MTI) – The Madach International Theatre Meeting (MITEM), a part of the ongoing Budapest Spring festival, began on Wednesday.
Organised for the first time, the festival will feature 20 productions from Hungary and 12 other countries, the organisers said.
The guest of honour this year is Russia from where three theatre directors, Anatoly Vasilev, Viktor Rizhakov and Valery Fokin, arrived in Budapest. Other guests include Lithuanian director Rimas Tuminas, French director Claude Regy and Norwegian playwright Jon Fosse.
MITEM is hosted by the National Theatre where two exhibitions have opened featuring Hungarian 19th-century writer Imre Madach and Hungarian-Russian theatre relations, said Attila Vidnyanszky, the theatre’s director.
During the festival’s 13 days theatre-goers can see productions from Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Baghdad, Novi Sad, Vilnius, Bucharest and Oslo.
