“The ambient originality and the authentic narrative of the story that is not only a personal tale of love, introduced to the audience by a former whaler and now a Fado singer in a in a Porto Pim club, is the backbone of our piece. Unrequited love and a sad song is, in brief, what can be explained as the substance of the offered project. Nevertheless, the climax is out of reach regardless of the beauty offered, unless there is his majesty – the actor, and Jugoslav Krajnov, principal drama artist of the Serbian National Theater in Novi Sad, is exactly the man bearing this kind of title.” (Miloš Latinović, the director)
