For the first time in Romania, “Fathers and Sons” - a show with a strikingly current topicality 30 April 2022
The National Theater from Bucharest announces a new premiere, on April 30, 2022, at the “Ion Caramitru” Hall: Fathers and Sons by Brian Friel (dramatization after the novel of the same name by Ivan Turgheniev). Regarded by critics as Turgenev's most successful novel, Fathers and Sons provoked a heated controversy over the conflict between the parents' generation (keepers of the traditional humanist ideals) and the generation of the rebellious sons (materialistic, disappointed, nihilistic, tempted to destroy everything related to the old lifestyle). After writing this novel in 1862, Turgenev was forced to leave Russia due to the hostile reactions. He settled in Germany, and later in England, where his novel Fathers and Sons was very successful The dramatization of Turgenev's famous novel by Brian Friel (1929-2015) - considered one of the most “Chekhovian” playwrights - premiered on June 26, 1987, at the Royal National Theater in London. In Vlad Massaci's staging on the main stage of the National Theater, Fathers and Sons is a show of a striking thematic topicality, in which you will find the atmosphere of the Russian theater with its characters trapped in a maze of endless emotions and discussions, as well as the English humor and fine irony that rises from the Irish playwright's pen. You will be seduced by the refined and nuanced acting of the actors carefully and sensitively guided by the director in an action that flows naturally in its dramatic moments. The cast of the play: Andrei Huțuleac, Alexandru Potocean, Mihai Călin, Richard Bovnoczki, Crina Semciuc, Cosmina Olariu, Emilia Popescu, Măriuca Bosnea, Diana Dumbravă, Vitalie Bichir / Tomi Cristin, Fulvia Folosea, Emilian Mârnea, Mihai Verbițchi, Andrei Tomi. The world of the “parents”, “out of tune” with the new ideology of the nihilistic youth, sinking into their own inability to change, finds its scenic transposition with deep meanings under the signature of the artists Adrian Damian (sets) and Luiza Enescu (costumes). In fact, through his show, Vlad Massaci reveals how Turgenev / Friel's entire human comedy becomes the drama of an entire world forced to endure the catastrophic aftermath of the ideologies that have marked the history of civilization and humanity. The official premiere will take place on April 30, 2022, at 7 pm, at the “Ion Caramitru” Hall of the “I.L. Caragiale” National Theater in Bucharest. The next performance is scheduled for May 1. Tickets can be purchased at the TNB Box Office, as well as online at www.tnb.ro.   Translated by Andreea Codrea-Boeriu
