John Malkovich defies heaven and earth in a one-man journey to the point where power corrupts absolutely. A dictator teeters on the brink, and megalomania escalates into full-blown madness. John Malkovich stands alone against the sound of the mighty Union Chapel organ in this astonishing one-man music-drama: an exploration of tyranny in the raw by an actor of unparalleled conviction. From Nero to Idi Amin, despots have had megalomaniac delusions of divine provenance. Michael Sturminger's music-theatre piece pits Malkovich against the grandiloquent power of the organ. Organist Martin Haselbock responds with music by Bach, Messiaen and Ligeti: words against music, genius versus delusion, and at its terrifying heart, an actor who spares no-one - least of all himself.
