The exhibition THE BEGINNINGS OF THE NATIONAL THEATRE OF CLUJ-NAPOCA
March 27, 2019
For the very first time, our theatre's archives were open to the public, displaying several documents about the first years of existence of the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca. On this occasion, visitors could see on video screens photos depicting the first productions of the theatre and historical images of the building.
The first posters of the theatre, with their original design following criteria completely different from the contemporary ones, were displayed as well.
Last but not least, the exhibition provided the viewers with reading spaces, where they could examine several handwritten or typed archive documents from the first years of existence of the institution, the original signature of Zaharia Bârsan, the first director of the theatre, the letterheads of the Royal House and of other institutions of the age. The exhibition welcomed its visitors in a time travel, where they could experience reports about the "wardrobe fund" or the "pricing raise", about hirings, precipitous firings, contracts, budgets, costumes, props, about the lives of all the people that, one hundred years ago, helped build artistically, administratively and financially, the institution that brings us all so much joy today!
The exhibition also displayed original documents and was open throughout the entire duration of the Gates Open Day, on Wednesday, 27 March 2019, between 10.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m.
