MASTER & MARGARITA
Featuring Electric Concert Harpist Malgorzata Zalewska
Master and Margarita - The Novel (M.Bulgakov)
- a literary sensation from its first publication.
The Master and Margarita has become an astonishing publishing phenomenon in Russia and has been translated into more than twenty languages, and made into plays and films.
Mikhail Bulgakov's novel is now considered one of the seminal works of twentieth-century Russian literature. In this imaginative extravaganza the devil, disguised as a magician, descends upon Moscow in the 1930s with his riotous band, which includes a talking cat and an expert assassin. Together they succeed in comically befuddling a population which denies the devil's existence, even as it is confronted with the diabolic results of a magic act gone wrong. Presenting - Gary Guthman's intriguing musical portrayal of this most fantastic story!
