Theater — Moby Dick: The Solo
Captain Ahab is obsessed with revenge on the white whale that ripped off his leg. Whoever spots it first will receive a gold coin. The men who earn their money with whaling fall more and more under the spell of the charismatic captain and increasingly join in his obsession. Two of the artistic directors of Theater Basel’s drama division, Antú Romero Nunes and Jörg Pohl, bring this seminal collaboration with them to Basel. Originally conceived as a production with eight actors, they rewrote it as a solo for the pandemic conditions. This production now returns to the Theater Basel stage. You can enjoy this classic of world literature as a vibrant spectacle in German with English surtitles at the Theater Basel.
Tickets are CHF 30-90 for adults and CHF 20 for young persons under age 30.
