Of the generation of composers now in their 40s, Samu Gryllus is the figure closest to the theatre in his mentality. In his works, the implementation on stage usually forms a part of the composition, and thus in his works, it is not only the voices of the characters that are annotated, but their actions as well. The main character of Two Women
– a meta-character, because he never appears in person – is himself a theatrical person: the keeper of an opera house's library of music scores and an occasional prompter.
"Well, in his old age, uncle Zsigó has gone mad,
" is how the work starts. The Brain Centre's tempestuous employees summon up all of their power trying to put order to Zsigó's cavalcade of feelings, desires and thoughts, so that they can understand the causes.
The work premiered as part of the Night of the Theatres event series as a collaboration with the MoltOpera team.
