The Russian-language play ‘The Baudelaire Passion’ will be shown in New York

The creative team “New Wave Arts” invites you to a new musical and literary extravaganza-play “The Baudelaire Passion”. The play, directed by Eduard Tolokonnikov, tells the story of the life and work of the great French poet Charles Baudelaire, founder of the poetic school of European decadence. Performances in New York will take place September 21-24 and 26-30.

Despite his literary merits, Baudelaire was considered one of the most controversial figures of his time. His short life was full of loud scandals and eccentric antics; the poet’s work was based on contrasts. He tried to find the truth of existence through finding a balance between the illusory poetic world and reality. This is exactly what the play “The Baudelaire Passion”, created by the writer Henry Keane, is about.

The play is a story about the struggle for the soul of a poet between the Devil and Saint Peter. Baudelaire’s soul is so important that ancient forces rise to continue their eternal struggle.
