The dramatic text was written by Ivo Svetina, at the request of the Muzeum Ljubljana. It is based on the period 1831-1835 in Vienna and it thematizes the structuring of the Slovenian and Serbian languages as European languages, but all through mutual relationships of the greats:  Jernej Kopitar, Vuk Karadzic, Matije Chopa i Franca Preserna, whose love towards a language and researches intertwines with conflicts and pressures of the censorship and the system.

The play will be performed in three languages- Slovenian, Serbian and German and apart from the Opera and Theatre Madlenianum, it shall also be held in Kranj and at Cankar’s Home as well. 

The role of Jernej Kopitar belongs to Peter Musevski, Vuk Karadzic is Ivan Bekjarev, Aleksandra Balmazovic is in the role of Mina (Vuk Karadzic’s daughter) and Matija Copa, Franc Presern and Antonio Hoeffern are interpreted by Borut Veselko, Jure Ivanusic i Vesna Pernarcic.
