A classic of world literature as a vibrant spectacle

Captain Ahab chases Moby Dick, the giant white sperm whale for his personal vengeance across the seven seas. In his novel, Herman Melville tells the story of a man's inner conflict and obsession with overcoming nature. Antú Romero Nunes stages the great American novel as a brilliant solo.

One ship, one crew, one whale, one world – one man. […] A bloody craft, a rebellion against one's own allegiance to nature, a working day on board, a competitive clamour of nations – one man.  Call him Jörg Pohl. Wow! Normally you wait until the end to start clapping, but the Basel Moby Dick solo is definitely one of those theatre events that will stay in the memory for a long time to come.
