Caligula is a spectacle based on the Albert Camus' drama but that spectacle suggests a different look at a history of Rome third emperor. It's the story about the clash great ideas with the narrow-mindedness of the world and about the price that has to be paid by those who strive for perfection. This is the story about little people distroying, with the stubborness, everything that made them aware of their triviality - Caligula was brutally murdered and - what's worst - he was slandered for ages. Pandula teared the shroud of the lies weaved by the Swetonius, duplicated later by historians and writers, and tells his own version of life and tragical Caligula's end - the great visioner.
With his theatrical manifesto Caligula proclaims: " Exciting illusion of the truth, the most beautiful spectacle in the world, the perfect place for the acts of God in the Earth, wonderful and attraction uncompared with anything, the thunder and lightning, destiny in the triumphal march... it's the art of drama... people make mistakes because they do not believe enought in theatre." This way the Caligula life became a living theatre, the journey without limits to the galaxy of everything what is invisible and unaware. The crowned poet with the divine clairvoyance of a hermit.
