As three Serbian wood nymphs entice him with prophetic riddles, a low-level party official and anonymous banker spies a dangerous path to the throne. His newfound charisma takes him to the summit of power, plunges the Balkans into war—and summons avenging angels from the West. From his perch as president to his ignominious deportation to the war crimes tribunal at The Hague, the play traces the rise and fall of Slobodan Milosevic and explores the relationship of justice to power, how violence is condoned and employed, ironically, by both heroes and villains. Milosevic at The Hague is a play with music, in a highly charged theatrical arena.
