Calígula is a faultless blend of dialogue and music. It moves us not just because of its esthetic transgressions but also because it makes us think. A play that addresses absolute power is still, unfortunately, relevant in many ways. Calígula is undoubtedly a paean to human freedom in its struggle against oppression by omnipotent, omnipresent and murderous power. At the end of the play Calígula says, “I exist and will continue to exist forever and ever,” but so will the struggle of peoples and individuals in pursuit of a freedom that is as eternal as the Calígulas of this world.
