‘This town was originally built to be a palace of time in space. In the stones of its foundation, there is peace and heroism, protection and eternal sacrifice.’ As though the earth’s heart opened and sad Celtic music issued forth, so begins István Fazekas’ docudrama entitled Town of Great Times with the lyrical statements delivered by the narrator, played by Gábor Koncz. Beneath the starry sky projected on the stage’s borders, there appear the strong contours of three burial mounds. In the slowly strengthening glare of lights on the horizon, we are soon witnesses to an Iron Age funeral. Then, thunder is heard. Lightening flashes across the angered firmament, and from that moment on, we take part in a unique journey through time – just like in Madách’s great work, The Tragedy of Man, only here we are tied to one concrete location.
