Friday, June, 8 2012. 8 p.m. at the Városmajor Open-Air Theater 

Based on a story, written by Ms. Magda Szabó.

NOVEL …TELEVISION SERIES … STAGE PERFORMANCE

The Lifeline of Abigél (Abigail) was brought alive when the novel was published, written by Ms. Magda Szabó.

„Abigél” was soon a popular novel and also quickly ran out of copies on the shelves at Bookstores.

The novel Abigél, was also adapted, popularised and broadcasted in a four-part series on the Hungarian Television in 1978.

To-day, there may not be many individuals of the „elder generation” who have not read or seen the TV-series.

Ms. Agnes Bánfalvy, the producer believes the drama to the young adults of to-day is also informative.

With this first performance, the 2012.  Budapest  Summer Festival opens a series of superb, entertaining outdoor entertainment to the Summer Festival events.

Abigél’s upcoming performances during the summertime at the Városmajor open-air theater will on stage 4 occasions.

Further performances during the Budapest Summer Festival:

June 10, September 1, September, 2.

8 p.m.

After the summer leaves us, the Budapest’s „Urania” Movie’s Theater will regularly bring on stage this piece of awesome drama.

Just briefly a couple of thoughts to the play: Abigél was based on the novel by Ms. Magda Szabo, which is really worth reading. Basically it’s about a general’s daughter, Gina, whose father decides out of the blue to send her to a boarding school in 1942. She has problems with the other girls in her class and discovers that her father is part of the resistance movement, which is why he sent her away, but that’s just a small part of a really good, complex story.
