The commemorative exhibition remembering Ferenc Bessenyei born a century ago evokes the start of his acting career and the most prominent and memorable performances of his oeuvre.
The iconic actor started his career in Géza Földessy’s company in Miskolc, where he formed plenty of characters, including an operetta bon vivant, Claudius in Hamlet, Lennie in Of Mice and Men, and the title roles in Bánk bán and Peer Gynt. Later, he returned to Miskolc in the 1960s to play Lajos Kossuth, one of his greatest roles, in Fáklyaláng (Torch-Flame), a drama written by Gyula Illyés.
Through the issues of the Film Színház Muzsika (Film Theatre Music) journal, the exhibition also presents the most emblematic performances of Bessenyei and his greatest moments in film and theatre.
