"In a way, what Ionesco says is that we can not avoid our own history, our own story, and that is why we deserve the globalization, because we repeat over and over again the same words, the same actions, day by day. They became clichés, with no content and no meaning and that is when we start living according to manuals or software which, as perfect as they are, only enlarge the communicational abyss between people. This is what Ionesco shows, with extraordinary humor, love and even compassion for his characters.

The structure of The Bald Soprano resembles the perfection of music and that is why, just as a conductor returns to a musical piece together with a new orchestra, this text needs to be approached as if it were a symphony by any director who returns to work on it. This musical structure of the text shows us again that, once one has found the structure of a performance, as I believe we have, it becomes, together with the text, the key of the performance."


Gábor Tompa
