CARNIVAL by I.L. Caragiale opens at Cluj-Napoca National Theatre on Saturday 4 February 2012 at 7pm in the Main Auditorium.

"The world that Caragiale’s theatre gives back to each audience generation is inevitably recognizable, firstly because of its despairing contemporaneity. Any kind of Romanian context, historical, cultural or social, places on the stage of our quotidian the characters depicted by Caragiale with the unequalled brilliancy of a creator, sociologist and political analyst. How could a director not fall intro the traps, similar to a prescriptive space, set by the playwright years ago?" says the director Mona Marian about the production.
