Before the actual coronavirus situation, the world-famous actor came to Hungary to present his newest show.
Debrecen is not only a beautiful town in the eastern part of Hungary, but it also has a famous university. John Malkovich already knows this, as well, because the Academy Award-nominated actor visited the town and also the university.
This was not his only reason to visit Debrecen: Malkovich present his newest show ‘The Music Critic’, as well. In the production, he slips into the role of the evil music critic who believes the music of Beethoven, Chopin, Prokofiev and the likes to be weary and dreary.
“Schumann fancies himself a ‘composer’ while Brahms is a ‘giftless bastard’. And Claude Debussy is simply ugly. Writer and director Aleksey Igudesman creates a sardonic mix of the most evil music critiques of the last centuries written about some of the greatest works of music” – we read about the show.
