How much Ahab is in each of us? A production of the classic "Moby Dick" by the Freie Ensemble Jedermann. The play is performed at Neues Schauspiel Leipzig on two weekends in October and November.

Our cultural tip for this October is a production by the theater group Freies Ensemble Jedermann, dealing with Hermann Melville's famous novel "Moby Dick". Melville sends Ahab, a captain obsessed with revenge, on a fanatical hunt for the white whale that once bit off his leg. Furthermore, Melville engages in various philosophical and scientific problems. The Freie Ensemble Jedermann now sends five characters on a search for their very own white whale and thus on a tightrope walk between poetry and cruelty...

On Friday, the 22nd of October, there will be a discussion after the play.

  • October 22 and 23 + November 12 and 13, 2021, both at 8.00 p.m.
  • Neues Schauspiel Leipzig, Lützner Str. 29, 04177 Leipzig, Germany
