The Visit

Claire Zacchanassian returns as richest woman of the world to the bankrupt town of Güllen. The inhabitants hope that she will save the impoverished town with her fortune.

The bankrupt town of Güllen is anticipating a special event. 45 years ago Claire Zachanassian left the town as a poor girl. Now she will return for a short visit as the richest woman in the world. The inhabitants hope that she will save the impoverished town with her fortune. In exchange for the money she demands the death of her childhood love, grocer Alfred Schil. The population is outraged and rejects the proposal. But how long can a person in need withstand the temptations of money and the pressure of the masses? Dürrenmatt paints a ruthless and grim picture of society, of an unstable Europe and the inevitable consequences of a capitalist system.

Cutting Edge - 12 August 2018

The LÂP music collective deserves an honourable mention for its tasteful and inspired musical accompaniment. At regular intervals the four musicians shine with their splendid part-song and a heated version of Patti Smith’s ‘Gloria’ with cello backing. It’s the music that repeatedly adds cachet …
