The 2013-2014 season at the end!

Sunday, 22nd of June 2014, at "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre of Bucharest the curtain will fall upon the 2013-2014 season with its last representations: Royal Fashion at Studio Hall, The Anonymous Venetian at Workshop Hall, Five Women in Transition at Painting Hall, and at the Small Hall, in dress rehearsal, Dystopia. Shakespeare. Remix – the first play from the new "9G" programme, dedicated to young and independent theatre creators under the auspices of “Ion Sava” Researching and Theatrical Creation Centre. 10 new titles, three halls newly built, two halls completely renovated (Workshop Hall and Studio Hall – which was rendered to the theatre show), generous exhibition spaces, various and unexpected events in a season intense animated, in which took place exhibitions, book launches, anniversaries and tours beside the theatre show, and prizes and many appreciations from the public and from the critics were received. Along with the new premieres The Storm, The Inspector General, Thieves, Little Hell, Rumours, The Man Who Saw Death, The Anonymous Venetian, Fool for Love, and Personality Card, which gathered on stage both renowned and very young actors, other appreciated titles from previous seasons have continued their career, the successful comedy The Dinner Game remaining on a top position. In this season the programme NTB Conferences also continued with lectures held by remarkable people of the Romanian culture. Within the event Open Doors Day, followed by National Theatre's Long Night, 40 years of theatre in the current building were celebrated in December 2013, a favourable opportunity for the audience to step into the freshly renovated spaces and finding out the variety of cultural offers of the new ambient. Master Radu Beligan, director of the National Theatre of Bucharest between 1969 and 1990, was celebrated for his 95th birthday, and at the end of the play The Egoist he received the title The Oldest Active Professional Theatre Actor from Guinness World Records. Amongst the exhibitions we mention The Emil Ciocoiu Painting Retrospective at the National Theatre, outstanding not just by its amplitude, but also by the unusual layout of the paintings, The International Naive Art Showroom, as well as the double event, varnishing day and book launch, dedicated to the master Marcel Chirnoagă. Also in this season multiple national and international tours (the participation at the MITEM International Theatre Festival in Budapest with the play Lottery Tickets – a notable success!) took place and the preparation for the first NETA International Theatre Festival, which will take place in September 2015 in NTB's definitive rebuilt building, has started. The theatre's online interface ( was improved at the same time with the launching of the new site and with the implementation of the online ticket sale system. Next season's debut is foreseen to take place like every year at the beginning of school classes and the first new title will be Powder Keg written by Dejan Dukovski, play with which the well-known director Felix Alexa is in rehearsals these days. A title in premiere, an author and a surprise play from the Romanian contemporary dramaturgy is being prepared by Ion Caramitru, the director. We wish you a nice holiday and see you in autumn with lots of interesting news!   Translated by: Dumitrescu Ioana-Alexandra MTTLC, the University of Bucharest
