Theatrical performance of “Calvin Genève en flammes” in front of the Reformers’ Wall

The highlight of the Calvin Jubilee is this impressive theatrical performance in the Parc des Bastions, with room for an audience of 1500. The stage in front of the Reformers’ Wall, built for the 400th anniversary of Calvin’s birth, could not be a more appropriate setting.The thread which runs through the play is Calvin’s encounter with Reformed Geneva, the vigorous controversies in the city, the assent or rejection of the various parties, the political struggles and what was at stake in them.

Text: Michel Beretti, author of more than 60 plays. Direction: François Rochaix, until June 2008 Director of the Théâtre de Carouge, director of the last Fête des Vignerons (1999). Twelve actors will represent the main characters, and professional musicians will accompany the performance. A simultaneous translation into English and German is available.

Place and time: In Geneva, July 1-July 26: Parc des Bastions (in front of the Reformers’ Wall), 21.00 h
