The Tragedy of Man is a ritual of initiation conducted by Lucifer. After the expulsion from Heaven, the fallen angel guides the first pair of human beings, Adam and Eve, on a journey through time and space, aiming at the enlightenment of the two in the end. Thus, in Egypt, Man learns that the abuse of power causes suffering, in Rome – pleasure without love is like the pest, in Byzantium – the faith which kills in the name of God is a lie, in Prague – superior knowledge used only for individual force darkens the mind. In Chaos, death can be defeated through love.

The Tragedy of Man truly presents a cycle of falls, a graveyard of shattered kingdoms. It is not by chance that Lucifer only unveils the ages of decline of the great Empires. Despite all atrocities from history, man owns the supreme weapon – Freedom – to change, to search, to Choose.

“The Tragedy of Man" is a show about Freedom. It presents a world in which God is silent, Lucifer rules over time, History is an illusion and man, a tormented being who tries to rebuild a Paradise Lost having a single weapon – Free Will”. Diana Mititelu
