Brecht play sweeps into Tokyo
"The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui" is one of the 20th-century's truly emblematic works. Written by German dramatist Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) the play premiered in 1941. Brecht transposes Adolf Hitler, the model for the central character of Ui, to the boss of a Chicago gang. With Martin Wuttke in the title role, this is the version by the Berliner Ensemble, originally directed by late Heiner Muller in 1995.
"The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui" runs till June 30 at the New National Theatre, a 2-minute walk from Hatsudai Station on the Keio New line. For more details, call the New National Theatre on (03) 5352-9999 or visit www.nntt.jac.go.jp
