Gone with the Wind

Gone with the Wind

Presgurvic's name is, of course, not unknown to the Hungarian audience, since Romeo and Juliet, with its more than 500 performances, is still one our most popular productions.


The story of Scarlett O'Hara starts in 1861, when the 16 year old girl's life - which, except for a few stormy love affairs, was totally cloudless before - changes forever, as the American Civil War breaks out between the North and South. The O'Hara family soon sinks into poverty and Scarlet has to fight day after day to keep their plantation, Tara, and to ensure her family's survival. Her life is paved with destruction, birth, and death. Scarlet's ill-fated marriages, born out of defiance, all break off eventually, but in the end, through the endless hardships, she finds a last chance to start again.

Mithcell's novel provided the basis for Victor Fleming's highly acclaimed 1939 film, which received 10 Academy Awards.

The debut performance of Gone With The Wind was in France, at Palais des Sports de Paris on 30 September 2003.

With this premiere, Budapest Operetta and Musical Theatre wishes to continue its tradition of presenting literary adaptations with the aim to provide the lovers of musical theatre with meaningful entertainment and real cathartic moments.
