Sándor Márai – Christopher Hampton

THE CANDLES BURN TILL THE END

As a member of the Central European cultural circle between the two world wars, Sándor Márai with his many fictional works marked a significant period of the European and Hungarian literature. The novel The Candles Burn Till the End written in 1942 expresses nostalgia for times gone, in which multiethnicity and multiculturality were desirable parts of the European society and real human values were greatly respected. Written in a precise and clear realistic style, the novel brings a reunion of two former friends who try to resolve the dark moments of their mutual sentimental past. Christopher Hampton, the famous English dramatist, scriptwriter and translator dramatized the text which was staged by Branko Ivanda, the great Croatian movie and theatre director. In cooperation with Teatro Erato a well watched and awarded performance was created.
