The Master and Margarita. You either love it or you haven’t read it. After the success of the modern twist on the novel in May 2018, the underground stage of Escola Secundária de Camões brings back some sympathy for the Devil for 2019.
Here’s the prelude:
“When the Devil returns to Lisbon, with his gang, to see how much the citizens of the 22nd century have changed, all hell breaks loose! Bodies tumble, those with no faith lose their minds, madness is unleashed… Fascinated by technological progress, the Devil is nevertheless searching for an absolute energy that moves people at all times. Let Satan’s midnight ball begin!…”
