After many years of touring all over the world, Simon McBurney’s award-winning company, Complicite, comes to Luxembourg with the mainland European premiere of a new work, The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.
In recent years Complicite has created some of the most inspiring and original theatre to come out of the UK. A Disappearing Number was seen in Europe, the USA and India and was winner of the 2008 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play, the 2007 Critics Circle Award for Best New Play and the 2007 Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play. The Company’s production of Shun-kin, based on the writings of Jun’ichiro Tanizaki, was originally created in Tokyo and was recently seen in London, Paris and Taipei. Simon McBurney was awarded the Yomiuri Theatre Award Grand Prize for Best Director for the piece – the first time this award has ever been presented to a non-Japanese director.
In 2010 Simon McBurney directed his first opera, A Dog’s Heart, which was seen at De Nederlandse Opera, Amsterdam and at English National Opera.
