Main Stage

Duration:

150 minutes inc. interval

Caligula (1938) is Albert Camus`s most important play in which he focuses on one of the most attractive and fatal historical characters. Caligula embodies a special form of perverted power, declaring that he acts in the name of doing good and useful for people but without any moral sense. Although Caligula is in “any of you”, as Camus wrote in one of his first drafts, it is not a coincidence that he got an idea for writing the play at the time of the rise of fascist leaders and that he completed it during World War II. Functioning under the cover of cynical rhetoric about the quest for common happiness, Caligula is a prototype of an authoritarian leader who in fact claims only his relentless and cold will for power.
