The “Stela Popescu” theater returns to its audience starting May 14. The reunion of the atmosphere that is created in direct contact with the public is eagerly awaited by both actors and spectators.

The titles that open the series, scheduled at the Small Hall of the Children’s Palace, are “Onion” by Aldo Nicolaj, directed by Dan Tudor (May 14, 7 pm) and “The Woman, the Eternal Story”, an interwar story directed by Attila Vizauer ( May 21 and 28, 7 p.m.).

The three creators of the show Onion by Aldo Nicolaj – director Dan Tudor, set designer Corina Grămoşteanu and musician Vlaicu Golcea – propose a comedy with serious notes, starring Adrian Păduraru (Piero della Pineda), Alexandra Velniciuc (Giulia), Sorin Aurel Sandu (Oreste), Silvia Stanciu (Bianca), Cătălin Frăsinescu (Mimo Rassi), Ana Maria Ivan (Lucia), Andreea Şovan (Liza), Cristian Neacșu (Nando). The Onion tells the story of Piero, a prosperous impresario, who decides, with a cold lucidity, to end his seemingly happy life right at its peak. He “undresses” in front of the audience the roles he plays in his own life, just as the leaves of an onion would unfold. In a theatrical journey sprinkled with a lot of humor, self-irony, but also with bitter reflection, his wife, mistress, best friend, secretary, and even the two children redefine their relationships with Piero, to his surprise.

The show “The Woman, the Eternal Story” is an interwar story directed by Attila Vizauer. The action takes place on the terrace of the Bucharest restaurant “The Lion and the Sausage”, on a summer evening, around 1937 or 1938. The protagonists are Maria, newly employed in the kitchen, and the waiter Pavel. The story alternates with famous musical moments of the time, which you will surely recognize. An evening of musical delights and spiritual duels slowly turns into an evening full of the suspense of unleashing a police intrigue, to end in a farce that still leaves a shadow of a doubt. At the end, the spectator will be left with the curiosity to browse the histories of Bucharest, to find its images in shades of sepia and its people with their passionate stories.

Today, the Stela Popescu Theater is a space open to all possibilities of theatrical expression. Our productions bring on stage both established artists and young creators, at the beginning of their careers, and the texts chosen to be staged – belonging to classical, modern and contemporary dramaturgy – challenge both theater lovers and show enthusiasts. dance and musical performances to witness new breath performances.
