Cluj-Napoca National Theatre reprises the production War of the Clowns directed by Eli Simon, Tuesday, 31 January, 07.00 p.m.


We are waiting for the young and the old to rediscover the birth of each clown, with their own distinct personalities, some exuberant, others introvert, some mean, others nice, all equally disobeying the advice of Mother Clown who anxiously watches as her children learn to play "life". Full of energy and always ready to make mischief, the clowns take us, for a while, out of the quotidian numbness and make us taste a different rhythm, look at interpersonal relations through different lenses. We invite you to discover together with us how the mind of a clown can be more powerful and more creative than the mind of a non-clown. And if we use our clown mind (which everyone has, even when don't behave like "clowns"), amazing things can happen.

Cluj-Napoca National Theatre reprises, this season, several successful productions from its repertoire. The first of them is the comedy JOHN WAYNE IS TO BLAME based on God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza and translated by Tudor Țepeneag, director Cristian Hadji-Culea. The cast is comprised of: Marian Râlea  (Michel Houillé),  Irina Wintze (Véronique Houllié), Diana Buluga  (Anette Reille) and Miron Maxim  (Alain Reille). Set designer: Valentin Codoiu, assistant set designer: Cătălina Chirilă. To get us in the "mood" we spoke briefly with the director Cristian Hadji-Culea and the actor Marian Râlea.  

A year without Melania Ursu

It has been a year since our colleague, the actress MELANIA URSU, left this world. A theatre and film actress, she had been a part of the Cluj-Napoca National Theatre team for over 50 years and had collaborated, along the years, with such important directors as Vlad Mugur, Mihai Măniuțiu, Alexandru Dabija or Victor Ioan Frunză.

Roles such as Béraldine in THE IMAGINARY INVALID, Aneta Duduleanu in THE JAYBIRDS, Madam Chirița in CARNIVAL IN IAȘI made thousands of spectactors explode with joyful laughter at her unmeasurable comedic talent. But she also took on serious roles in tragedies or dramas, such as  HECUBA or IPHIGENIA IN AULIS by Euripides, HAMLET by William Shakespeare, THE DANCE OF DEATH by August Strindberg or A CLINICAL CASE by Dino Buzzati, where here stage performance flourished.

She was a teacher for numerous generations of actors. Along the years, she was rewarded with numerous awards or medals, such as the Lifetime Achievement Award offered by UNITER in 2012, and Knight of the Order of National Merit, in 2002.

Mrs. Mela, you will always be in our souls. Thank you for sharing a part of your life's journey with us!
