About this show

Music, specifically on the violin, has long been an integral part of Gypsy culture. One of Hungary's most well-respected theater companies, Katona József Theatre and director Gábor Máté bring their production of Gypsies, which touches on the lives of Gypsy musicians, namely violinist Dani, who becomes involved in a fatal love triangle. Jeno J. Tersánszky and Krisztián Grecsó's play combines text from the original 1931 version with a contemporary version of the story to chronicle the love, tensions, and conflicts that arise among Gypsies and Hungarians coexisting in the Hungarian countryside.
