Positive or negative characters. Lyrical, dramatic, romantic or classic characters... Not everyone ends up being a character. But very few who made the leap from history to literature or art have been portrayed, over time, as variously as Ivan Mazepa, leader of the Cossacks (1639-1709). In our dramatisation today, we invite you to discover him through different perspectives.
