Richard III has always been a source of fascination because of his violent, manipulative and reclusive character. The Duke of Gloucester, a misshapen and deceitful murderer, is unquestionably one of the most iconic villains in Shakespeare’s repertoire. The young, acclaimed Hungarian director, Kriszta Székely, is now an associate director of the Teatro Stabile di Torino after her successes in Turin and Budapest with Uncle Vanja. Under her direction, the play and its main character, Richard III – authoritatively portrayed by Paolo Pierobon – becomes an even fiercer and harsher critique of the quest for power and self-assertion that is typical of all totalitarianism.
