Spanish fly

Franz Arnold / Ernst Bach

Franz Arnold / Ernst Bach

Spanish fly

A less known but excellent comedy from the higher society of early 20th century targeting the middle-class morale issues will be the last drama premiere of season 2019/2020.

It is full of changes and errors; grotesque, farcical, situational – all these adjectives suit the title of authors Franz Arnold and Ernst Bach, which first premiered in 1913 and continues to entertain audiences in theatres all over the world for more than a century.

This easygoing comedy is also characterized by unexceptionable qualities of text and great acting opportunities for the DJKT performing group. Directress Natália Deáková is not aiming to defy the genre but to make the most of it.
