The world premiere of László Dubrovay's dance drama Faust, the Damned took place at Müpa Budapest in 2016, as part of the Budapest Spring Festival. This large-scale production inspired by Goethe's masterpiece debuted on the main stage of the National Theatre of Pécs in the 2023/24 season, and will run again in 2024 at Müpa Budapest's Festival Theatre. László Dubrovay's marvellously enchanting music comes to life with a spectacular set and an easy-to-follow plot passionately acted out by the dancers of Ballet Pécs, directed and choreographed by Balázs Vincze. This impressive production, being presented in the 2023/24 season as a collaboration between Ballet Pécs and the National Theatre of Pécs, is a genuine treat for fans of music, dance and literature alike.

This performance for the 2023/24 season has been created as a joint production of Ballet Pécs and the National Theatre of Pécs.

The world premiere was staged by Müpa Budapest in 2016, as part of the Budapest Spring Festival.

This revival of the dance drama Faust, the Damned has been supported by the National Cultural Fund.
