The performance encompasses mystery of life and death, recognition and oblivion, love and despair – all of that is taking place in the mind of the protagonist Ivan Bezdomny who has found himself at a mental institution. In a certain sense this character embodies Bulgakov himself or, to be more exact, a symbolic figure of the Writer who together with his work, or for the sake of his work and his truth, like Christ, has to experience all kinds of spiritual metamorphoses ranging from humiliation, defilement and madness to saintliness…
