Polish audiences will have a rare opportunity to see plays staged by some of the finest European theaters at the Narodowy Theater in Warsaw during the third National Theaters Meeting festival in June.

The plays are directed by acclaimed directors, though some of them are still largely unknown in Poland.

The festival will mark the first visit to Warsaw by the legendary Royal Dramatic Theater from Stockholm. It will stage the revelation of the season, The Ghost Sonata by August Strindberg, reinvented by one of Europe’s greatest choreographers, Mats Ek.

Germany’s Andrea Breth will direct The Prince of Homburg by Heinrich von Kleist, staged by the Burgtheater from Vienna.

The two classic plays will be followed by hot contemporary productions. The National Theater from Lithuania will stage the latest play by Oskaras Korsunovas. The epic production lasts several hours and revolves around the lives of economic immigrants in London, a topic that resonates with both Lithuanian and Polish audiences. The production stirred a heated debate in Vilnius and received a number of awards.

The festival will end with the Aleksandrinsky Theater from St. Petersburg staging a play directed by Valeriy Fokin entitled Zero Liturgy, based on a work by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
