Concert-Show Emy Dragoi & Grande Orchestra What happens when the music in the "City of lights" encounters the music in Little Paris? A show loaded with energy, colour and passion, a show that brings along, then transmitting them to the public, the melody of the accordion, the perfume of music from famous Parisian neighborhoods and authentic Romanian folk harmonies reinterpreted. Grande Orchestra and Emy Dragoi set the stage for a musical collaboration full of fantasy and originality, which will take the spectator from the streets of Paris, from the bridges of the Seine, from the small bistros in Montparnasse to the Bucharest bridge Mogosoaia, the famous Royal Palace and the well-known passage, Lipscani. All in a festive atmosphere, in the style of the twenties and thirties, on the rhythms of some musical genres - swing and manouche - with a special charm, which have made and continue to make history. A milestone show that faces the audience with total artists: Emy Dragoi, Ion Caramitru, Toni Grecu. Along with them will appear on stage Grand Orchestra - an orchestra that gathers valuable instrumentalists: 20 violinists, piano, percussion, bass, guitar, etc., Alls'choir - a choir consisting of soloists from the Romanian Opera in Bucharest, but also Magic Violin. The hypostasis in which artists present themselves to the audience may seem unusual, but is fully justified by their artistic background. Emy Dragoi is an artist who does not need any more introductions. He has won countless competitions, played on the most important stages of the world, reached the performance of being designated, even in France - the homeland of the accordion - as the "Accordionist of the year". “I was born in Prahova, to a family of musicians from the Slanic Valley. My parents, uncles, distant relatives, were all in the news, being called to weddings and other parties. My father was giving accordion lessons and I keep alive the image from the summers of my childhood when, under the walnut tree in the yard, he sat for hours surrounded by students. Both parents performed both instrumentally and vocally, being cherished especially for the performance of old songs. My whole childhood, like my whole life, is related to music. There are many memories, but I have never forgotten nor will I forget the day when, at the age of only 3, I received my first accordion as a gift. I feel best on stage. Out of respect for the audience, I am never satisfied with what I do and I always set my mind on more. I have always admired those who managed to excel in one field or another, thus also in the musical one. Of course I compare myself to the best in the field, but not in order to copy them, but to succeed in my turn to become better and better. We promise you a show that has never been created in Romania and you may not miss it ”. Emy Dragoi   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu

1989. The Diary of a Revolution 16 December 2020
Documentary film”1989. The Diary of a Revolution” PremiereWednesday, December 16th, 2020, 20:00, online, YouTube / Facebook / NTB website and partnersSaturday, December 19th, 2020, 11:00 p.m., TV premiere, Digi 24 Watch here   "I don't know of any other European capital whose landmark is the national theatre!" (Lavinia Betea) The theatres are closed, but the online space gives us the chance to be together again. The "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre announces the premiere of the documentary "1989. The Diary of a Revolution” on December 16th, 2020 at 8 pm, directed by Carmen Lidia Vidu. The event is a cultural hybrid adapted to the times we live in. The project consists of elements of film, theatre, television set, videomapping, aerial filming. In addition to the testimonials of actors Ion Caramitru, Oana Pellea, Daniel Badale and Florentina Țilea, the project proposes interviews about the Secret Services, the Ceausescu Trial, the Revolution, terrorists made with Germina Nagâț, Dan Voinea, Dennis Deletant, Andrei Ursu, Lavinia Betea. One of the moral duties of the theatre is to raise questions and engage in dialogue. Everyone has a different opinion about how one was during the Revolution, whether one experienced it or not. Most of the information that the population has assimilated and repeats is "the official one", sometimes forgetting their personal history. We try to put together the two types of images (official and private) to outline a more nuanced image of the 1989 Revolution. In a completely new context, the National Theatre of Bucharest keeps in touch with the audience, adapts and finds solutions to honour the event that changed the recent history of Romania: The Revolution of 1989. "1989. The Diary of a Revolution" is a production of the National Theatre of Bucharest that starts from the documentary theatre show "Romanian Diary. 1989" directed by Carmen Lidia Vidu which premiered at the Amphitheatre Hall of the National Theatre in July 2020. ( The documentary film "1989. The Diary of a Revolution" is a cultural product conceived exclusively for the online environment and television and will enjoy two premieres: on December 16th at 8.00 p.m. in the online environment (YouTube / Facebook / NTB website and partners) and on December 19th at 11.00 p.m. will have its premiere on television, on Digi 24.

Innovative exhibition of restored goods from the Collection of the Bucharest National Theatre 08 December 2020
      On December 8th, 2020, starting with 1:00 p.m., the lobby of the Grand Hall of the "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre of Bucharest, will host the first promotional event of the project Innovative exhibition of restored goods from the collection of the Bucharest National Theatre Museum, a project financed by the EEA Grants 2014-2021 within the RO-CULTURE Program. The opening conference of the project will be attended by representatives of the beneficiary of the funding - the "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre of Bucharest, as well as project partners: National Art Museum of Romania, National Village Museum "Dimitrie Gusti", National Military Museum King Ferdinand I and the National Library of Romania. The conference will be broadcast live, online, on NTB YouTube channel and on the Project and NTB Facebook pages. The project aims to improve the management of cultural heritage, improve cultural entrepreneurship, develop new skills and create new jobs. The project will lead to the organization of an innovative exhibition that will bring to the public 38 restored movable property, the development of new skills in the workplace for project team members and the creation of 3 new jobs at the NTB Museum. The "IL Caragiale" National Theatre of Bucharest is, at national level, the only public institution of performances that holds in its patrimony impressive collections of cultural goods, historical mirrors of the evolution of Romanian drama and performing arts. Following the reconstruction and redevelopment of the National Theatre, a generous space (650 sqm) was devoted to the NTB Museum, in which spectators and visitors have access right from the main entrance of the theatre, from the Grand Hall lobby. In recent years, the NTB Museum has undergone an extensive process of reorganizing and reinventing the collections it holds. The data resulting from the inventory show that the collection of the NTB Museum comprises 227 paintings, 213 sculptures, 500 drawings, 157 costumes and accessories, 390 decorations and medals, 150 personal objects of the actors, and in the museum's warehouses there are numerous posters, photos and prints that will enter the collection of the National Theatre Library. The reorganization of the Museum is achieved on modern principles and according to the rigours of the Law on Heritage, Museums and Collections and the rules on inventory, restoration and classification of movable cultural assets, being a real challenge for the NTB team. The project "Innovative exhibition with restored cultural assets" is therefore a welcome support for the performance in the best possible conditions of these activities and a significant step towards the reopening of the Museum to the general public. The project responds to the needs expressed both by the target groups (actors and technical and administrative staff of the Bucharest National Theatre, theatrologists, historians and theatre critics in Bucharest and in the country), and by the NTB audience. According to a market study conducted by NTB in ​​2019, among the population of Bucharest, aged 18-64, NTB attracts the largest audience segment - approximately 45%. The NTB audience is the most culturally active, 6 out of 10 of the NTB spectators have attended more than 6 artistic events in the last year and most of them went, in addition to theatre performances, to museums / exhibitions, cinema, concerts. Taking into account these data, the project aims to increase the number of visitors to the Bucharest National Theatre by at least 30%, targeting especially young audiences, in line with the slogan promoted by the current NTB communication team: "A new theatre for a new audience. ” The project activities will be carried out by the teams of the "IL Caragiale" National Theatre of Bucharest in collaboration with the teams of the four partner institutions. The Bucharest National Theatre will ensure the management of the project which involves permanent monitoring of all activities, communication and relations with partners, expertise of cultural assets, preparation of documentation for classification of assets, submission to the National Commission of Museums and Collections, monitoring of acquisitions and financial operations project, communication and promotion of the project, as well as the organization of the innovative exhibition. The project partners, through their own restoration departments and specialized laboratories, will carry out the examination, physical and chemical investigations, treatment, conservation and restoration of the heritage objects that will be entrusted to them. The opening conference of the project will present to the public, through the guests present at the event, details about the objectives, activities, results of the project, as well as team members who will take part in their activities: managers, restorers, experts. The event will also be attended by representatives of the RO-CULTURE Program by which the project was funded. *** EEA grants represent the contribution of Iceland, the Principality of Liechtenstein and the Kingdom of Norway to reducing economic and social disparities in the European Economic Area and to strengthening bilateral relations with the 15 beneficiary states in Eastern and Southern Europe and the Baltic States.
