MILOŠ PIETOR A SHAKESPEAROVE HISTORICKÉ KRONIKY V SND
Miloš Pietor and Shakespeare’s historical chronicles in the Slovak National Theatre
Languages of publication
The plays of William Shakespeare, except for Hamlet (Nová scéna, 1974) and Richard III (SND, 1987), do not define the artistic profile of Miloš Pietor, yet they significantly supplement it. Although as a dramaturge he felt at his best in a different repertoire, his several encounters with Shakespeare cannot go unnoticed. They must be examined for complete information about the director’s artistic development, but also about the productions of Shakespeare in Slovakia. Pietor had encountered Shakespeare six times; their seventh encounter was interrupted by the director’s unexpected death. The present paper deals with Pietor’s production of Shakespeare’s historical chronicles for the Slovak National Theatre in the period of 1980–1987.
