The city of Vienna is on the road to moral decay. The underworld is thriving, brothels are proliferating, corruption and prostitution are rampant... There are strict laws, but they are neither applied nor enforced. The ruler, powerless, decides to give power to a man of pure morals and noble soul to restore the moral order. Shakespeare's last, not at all light-hearted comedy, with great political games, mad desires, buffoons and lots and lots of love.



The Vígszínház is one of the most historic and popular theatres in Budapest. Its three venues (the Main Stage, the House Stage Studio and Chamber, the Pest Theatre) have a total of more than 1700 seats. The theatre is also known as the cradle of modern Hungarian bourgeois drama, with famous authors such as Jenő Heltai, Sándor Bródy, Dezső Szomory, Menyhért Lengyel, Ernő Szép, Sándor Hunyady, Ferenc Herczeg, and others. In the 21st century, the majority of the world's theatres with large auditoriums have lost a good part of their audience. Despite this trend, the premieres of the Vígszínház are successful, and its performances are well attended. The theatre is located on the Újlipótváros side of Szent István körút in Budapest.
