Based on the play „The Kingdom of Emperors – The Second Night” and infused with the romantic spirit that generated it, this performance presents the story of the poet Konrad, a hero haunted by the revolutionary ideas of the 19th century, hungry for knowledge and always unappeased in front of his destiny. He fights a Promethean battle against God (whom he disputes the love for people and accuses of being a tyrant), which throws his soul straight into the arms of Satan. The show becomes thus a ritual of despair, exorcism but ultimately also of the return of the poet’s soul to his own self.
