Local Talent To Perform In 'The Passion Of Csíksomlyó' Homecoming
The Hungarian National Theatre and the Hungarian National Dance Ensemble are bringing ’The Passion of Csíksomlyó’ depicting the suffering of Christ to Şumuleu Ciuc (Csíksomlyó), Romania, on August 18, featuring local talent, director of the National Theatre Attila Vidnyánszky said.

The play, which debuted last year at the National Theatre, will be performed outdoors and will feature hundreds of Transylvanian musicians and dancers, Vidnyánszky told Duna Television.

“We produced the play together with the local talent,” he said. “Everyone involved could consider it as somewhat their own.”

The play will also feature performances by Franciscan monk Csaba Böjte’s children’s choir as well as opera singer Levente Molnár.

The dialogue comes from 18thcentury Franciscan school plays performed in Şumuleu Ciuc, lines taken directly from scripture, archaic folk songs, stories and legends, and poet Géza Szőcs’s Passion, Vidnyánszky said.
