Abstract

The article features an interview with Sir Richard Eyre, a long-time Director of the Royal National Theatre in London and the director of the production of William Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear in the very same  theatre in 1997, which also saw a successful film  version. Sir Richard openly spoke about  his dilemmas as a director in the process of staging  the play, finding  the right east, about rehearsals and the first night performance, as well as about some key scenes interpreted by him somewhat  differently, although he essentially firmly relied on the text and the more traditional staging  of this famous Shakespeare's tragedy.
