The brave and challenging “Nora” directed by Haris Pasovic defies all stereotypes. It is both spectacularly entertaining with great dance, costumes, lights and music and profoundly seriously with its philosophy of liberty, individualism and women’s rights. Brilliantly acted by young stars of the Bosnian theatre and Haris Pašović as Dr. Rank, “Nora” has become an instant hit.
