Sad news from Saskatoon: Tibor Feheregyhazi, artistic director of Persephone Theatre, has died.
I worked with Tibor twice, in the summer of 2000 on Tent Meeting at the Station Arts Centre in Rosthern, then later that same year at Persephone, when he cast me in Who Has Seen the Wind? He was a wonderful director and someone I enjoyed just sitting and talking with, too. Lord knows I learned more about Hungary than I’d ever known before…
It’s a great pity he didn’t live long enough to see Persephone’s new theatre completed later this year: it was something he campaigned for a long time.
Rest in peace, Tibor.
My condolences to all his friends and family.
I just found out too that he passed away and I’m in absolute shock. What a tremendous loss, and I’m just so very sad that our favourite Hungarian won’t be able to see his new theatre.
I’ll always treasure my memories of him – may he rest in peace. We’ll miss you Tibor.
