01 Mar 2017 Make a Gift Together with NTB: The Theatre Gift Vouchers
Make a Gift Together with NTB: The Theatre Gift Vouchers

  Because people love beauty, they want to make gifts and because people who love beauty belong to our faithful audience, we have thought of meeting them with an unusual gift: the theatre voucher. The theatre voucher is the special gift we are launching on 1st March, but it is dedicated to all special moments of this year. Initiated last year, the Make a Gift Together with NTB campaign has launched for the first time on the market of cultural products, the theatre gift vouchers, meant to assist the ones who wish to give their loved ones the possibility of choosing their favourite theatre show from the repertoire of the ”I.L. Caragiale” National Theatre of Bucharest, on various anniversary occasions. The ones who had received a theatre gift voucher, were able to purchase from the NTB box office, to the extent that there were places free, tickets to the theatre shows, at prices falling within the value inscribed on the voucher. This year, we are bringing to your attention an offer consisting of three types of theatre gift vouchers, addressed to the various audience categories: The Gift Voucher, worth 100 lei, gives the possibility of purchasing in the range of low and medium prices within the NTB offer. The Premium Voucher, worth 200 lei, is the voucher that can be exchanged for tickets within the category of maximum prices from the offer of the National Theatre. The Student / Senior Voucher, worth 40 lei, is a special voucher, dedicated to students and seniors (our theatre-loving grandparents!), enabling the purchase from the NTB box office of tickets from the category for students and retired people. For exchanging this special voucher, the ones coming to the box office are kindly asked to show their student ID or a pension slip. Unlike last year, when vouchers could be exchanged only at the theatre’s box office, this year, the vouchers from the Gift and Premium categories can also be used online, for the purchase of tickets via the websites and On the online ticketing site,, the shows for which you can purchase tickets with the aid of the series inscribed on the vouchers, shall bear a distinctive mark indicating this possibility, so that they can be easily identified. Vouchers contain barcodes and can be read with the aid of a special sensor, should they be exchanged at the box office. In case of their exchange on the online platform, the inscription of the voucher series shall be necessary, matching the barcode, in the space intended for the validation of vouchers, by the purchasing software of The ones willing to join this campaign, through the purchase of a larger number of gift vouchers, are asked to contact us, as the print-run of these vouchers is limited.
