The production of Eimuntas Nekrošius is based on the writing from the Old Testament, the Book of Job. It is one of the most complex texts in the Holy Bible yet not the first to be staged by director Eimuntas Nekrošius. In 2004, he staged another book from the Old Testament, the Song of Songs.

Eimuntas Nekrošius: “It will probably be one of the most complex of my works. An intelligent, interpretative process. I could have chosen a classical text, everything would have been easier, and I could have lived in peace. But something made me pick this piece.”

The Book of Job tells the story of a man called Job who loses everything: his wealth, children, health, but still refuses to give up his faith in God. “No one is insured against misfortunes of life. So far, I only know that the stage will be permeated with an atmosphere of pain,” the director gave a glimpse to his production.

Minimalistic set design, precisely detailed costumes, subtle musical accents, bold yet subtle performance of actors, attention to the tiniest detail of stage action join the words of the Book of Job to a powerful and astounding sight.

The price of the tickets will increase.
