Written by Zsigmond Móricz, Hungary's greatest modern novelist, Be Faithful Unto Death is the moving story of a bright and sensitive schoolboy growing up in an old, established boarding school in the city of Debrecen in Eastern Hungary. Misi, a dreamer and would-be writer, is falsely accused of stealing a winning lottery ticket. The story of Misi's turn-of-the-century torments brought on by this incident has been musicalised and has already become an instant hit in Hungarian musical theatre back in the 1990s. This premiere production of the show's symphonic concert theatre version is presented at the Nagyerdei Open Air Theatre in Debrecen - the city where not only the novel's entire story is located, but also where the musical's original premiere took place almost three decades ago.
