The National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca invites you to the premiere of the performance Stories of Love at First Sight after the prose volume signed by Gabriel Liiceanu, Adriana Bittel, Ioana Pârvulescu, Radu Paraschivescu and Ana Blandiana. The premiere is taking place in the "Euphorion" Studio, Friday, 23 February, from 7.00 p.m.. Direction and scenography: Tudor Lucanu. Video projections: Cristian Pascariu. Cast: Mihai-Florian Nițu, Diana Buluga, Petre Băcioiu, Radu Lărgeanu, Ioan Isaiu.
Love, the most wonderful feeling on earth, is now debated upon in the intimate ambiance of "Euphorion". You will have the opportunity to possibly see yourselves in these stories, to remember the times when you also fell in love at first sight. It's a chance to bring back into focus times fallen into oblivion. Our role here is to explore along with you the paradoxes of the heart, when flooded by that warm wave, that raspberry-flavored feeling, those butterflies swarming chaotically through your stomach.
The team of the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca has started rehearsals for a new variant of the concert-performance THE ISLAND, after Gellu Naum, by Ada Milea. More than seven years after its premiere, the performance will be resumed on 18 February 2018 in a new formula: "The new Island is filled with surprises: it has two new characters, a lot of new instruments, new ideas, new texts, new melodies, new looks and the new sad humour of the comedy of loneliness lived by a Robinson Crusoe who is stranded on an island that is both deserted and filled with people. I think there is more Gellu Naum and more inspiration in this new old performance." (Ada Milea)
The National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca is looking forward to welcoming you at the event dedicated to National Culture Days and to the Romanian national poet, Mihai Eminescu, organized in partnership with the Town Hall of Cluj-Napoca and the Romanian National Opera, which will take place Monday, 15 January 2018, at 11.00 a.m., in the foyer. You can hear then a recital of lieds and poems from Mihai Eminescu's work, held by actors Elena Ivanca and Ruslan Bârlea, along with members of TOA (Transylvanian Opera Academy) - the only Romanian program meant to train and improve young opera artists: Diana Gheorghe (guest), Viktória Cormoș, Andrei Manea (guest), Andrei Nicoară, Bianca Murariu (piano), directed by: Andreea Iacob. The lieds played are composed on Eminescu's verses from poems: Dorință [A Wish], Ce te legeni... [Why Swingest...], Și dacă... [What If], La steaua... [To the Star...]. Actors Elena Ivanca and Ruslan Bârlea will read poems Floarea albastră [The Sky-Blue Flower], Glossă [Glossa], Ce-ți doresc eu ție, dulce Românie [What I Wish for You, Sweet Romania], Gândind la tine [Thinking of You], a fragment from Scrisoarea I [First Letter], as well as fragments from the correspondence between Eminescu and Veronica Micle, but also verses written by Marin Sorescu, as an homage to "The Star of Romanian Poetry": Trebuiau să poarte un nume [They Had to Have a Name].
In the exquisite setting of the foyer, the musical chords will merge with the poems read, in a sound fusion meant to delight viewers.
