A democracy becomes a dictatorship. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether to join in or swim against the tide. The actor Hendrik Höfgen is also in this dilemma but does not want to admit it. "Imprisoned in his ambition," he dreams only of his future fame, which has just begun to blossom. His talent is undisputed and enthusiastic even the new rulers, who like to surround themselves with artists. But many recognize the signs of the times and go abroad, into exile. Also Hendrik stands for a moment before this decision: Go or stay. But living as a poor refugee abroad?

A indebted small town experiences its upswing as a health resort thanks to a healing water source. But diseases among the bathers make the bath doctor Tomas Stockmann suspicious - an analysis of the water results in a harmful contamination. In the escalating conflicts of interest, Tomas Stockmann will soon be alone. He must realize that his fellow citizens are more interested in preserving the status quo than in uncomfortable truths.
Medea – Königstochter, Ehefrau, Betrogene, Fremde. Medea – Kindsmörderin, Hexe. Wohl kaum eine Frauenfigur der Antike hat mehr Adaptionen inspiriert als sie.

Dionysos, den seine Anhänger auch Bakchos nennen, ist nach Theben, in die Stadt seiner Herkunft, zurückgekehrt, um seine Anbetung zu erzwingen. Pentheus, der neue Herrscher Thebens, hat eine säkulare Ordnung geschaffen und erkennt die göttliche Abstammung des Dionysos als Sohn des Zeus nicht an. Große Teile der Bevölkerung unter Führung von Pentheus’ Mutter Agaue hat der Gott bereits in seinen Bann geschlagen, sie feiern als Bakchen in den nahegelegenen Bergen Orgien zu Ehren des neuen Gottes.
