Die Riesen vom Berge

The Mountain Giants
By Luigi Pirandello
Performed in German

Pirandello's prolific writing career was unusual in that he had already earned a considerable reputation as a poet and prose author before turning to theatre relatively late in his life.

"The Mountain Giants" is a complex work, further complicated by having been left unfinished by Luigi Pirandello. The action takes place in the fantastic Villa Scalogna, inhabited by a grotesque group of people led by Cotrone, a wizard and illusionist. Into this scene comes a band of actors, about to perform one of Pirandello's own plays. The Mountain Giants was first produced at the National Theatre in the summer of 1993.
