Gogol: Diary of a Madman

Directed by: Mr. Csaba Horváth

Place: Garden Restaurant – Városmajor Theater

Address: 2nd District – 2/B Szamos Street

Date and Time: 1st of February 1 (Wednesday) 7 p.m.


Unexpected interest and attention had been growing at the new playground at the scene of Városmajor. Lately, the Garden Restaurant  had opened  its floor to share series of  theater plays.

During the evening hours (7 p.m.) Wednesday, February the 1st, Mr. Zsolt Körtvélyessy, actor will present the play of the Diary of a Madman. One of best-known work of Nyikolaj Vasziljevics Gogol, (19 March 1809 – 21 February 1852), Ukrainian-born Russian writer. Gogol was truly a classic in the Russian literature. He was fond of writing about the satirised corrupt bureaucracy of the Russian Empire. He formed the scathing realism, ethical criticism.

Be aware, within  the play,  the actor will drift the audience on an emotionally roller coaster.

Mr. Zsolt Körtvélyessy, once talked about why he felt he would like to play this role. His thoughts were …  now-a-days he feels, sees it is even more actual than before. In our present days we are less interested in the crazy ones at the ”clinical care”. We are more interested on the side of the vulnerability, the relationship between the power and the human being. The scale of humiliation will surely make the audience impossible to focus on something else as Mr. Zsolt Körtvélyessy will be engaging their attention.

Whether your Hungarian is good enough, or not to understand the play, here is a link where you can update a bit of what the play is about. When you know the background then just watching the actor it will take you away.

  2. Hello https://rollinginbudapest.com/2012/01/25/a-night-at-the-varosmajor-theater-presenting-gogols-diary-of-a-madman/ webmaster. I came to your “A NIGHT AT THE VÁROSMAJOR THEATER PRESENTING GOGOL’S “DIARY OF A MADMAN” Rolling in Budapest” page via Google but it was hard to find as you were not on the first page of search results. I see you could have more visitors because there are not many comments on your site yet. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your website: http://www.linklegends.com. They managed to get close to 1000 visitors/day using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic from search engines than you have now. I used their services and got significantly more visitors to my website. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care. Mandi
