Gogol’s ‘Marriage’ in National Theatre of Sarajevo

Play ”Marriage” by Gogol directed by Petar Veček from Zagreb will be played in the National Theatre of Sarajevo on 21 March at 7.30 p.m.

Summer’s coming in St Petersburg and blushing bride-to-be, Agafya, has a string of suitors lined up for her by the local matchmaker – but how can she decide which one to pick? Ivan wants to get married – but how long will he take to pop the question once he’s made up his mind?

Ivan’s best friend, Ilya, driven to distraction by all the dithering, vows to take charge and force his hand – wiping out the competition from the other suitors and making sure the day ends with wedding bells ringing. But will his cunning plan succeed?

”Marriage” was published in 1842, and Gogol himself called it an incredible event in two parts. Cast of the play: Amra Kapidžić, Nisveta Omerbašić, Jasna Diklić, Ermin Sijamija, Miraj Grbić, Damir Kustura, Vladimir Jokanović, Mirvad Kurić, Aldin Omerović i Mirna Kreso, stated the National Theatre Sarajevo.
