King Lear by William Shakespeare, April 7, 6:30 p.m

Mihai Șarna: “Three years ago, for the first time I spoke with Mr. Petru Vutcarau about staging King Lear at TNEI. TNEI… Petru Vutcarau, who had not stepped on stage for a long time. An exceptional but unknown troupe…and of course King Lear, Shakespeare’s top play. All these elements put together must create a single thought, a single desire, a unique pleasure and of course true madness…fear breeds courage.

July 22, 2021 – the first rehearsal, the first meeting with the band, with the theater, with the hall, with the invisible looks and gestures, the expectations and thoughts of the creative team… The readeness is all… the availability is everything… this is Petru Vutcarau, this is his band. ”

The Art of Living by Yasmina Reza, April 8, 6:30 p.m

The central subject is the frustration of married life. It all starts in the Vallon family salon, where the Reille couple arrive, whose son hit Bruno Vallon in the face with a stick, leaving him without two teeth. The beginning of the conversation between the parents is diplomatic, civilized, in an attempt to preserve good manners and mutual respect. Gradually, however, everything degenerates into an aggressive confrontation, as a result of which all the dissatisfactions of married life come to the surface.

The songs by Alexandru Kirițescu, April 9, 5:30 p.m

The play “Gaițele” (or “Wasps Nest”) is one of the valuable comedies of the interwar period in the national dramaturgy. A tragic comedy in two acts. The author attacks a society in full process of decomposition, a society that clings to old forms of a life locked in prejudices and formal traditions.

Humor is a priority and the text aims to highlight the lack of culture of rich people who only want to travel and spend the whole day doing absolutely nothing. The show presents the realities of our world, regardless of the period.
