“Marin Sorescu” National Theatre of Craiova Part of the Elite of the European Theatres

With 165 years of history, the “Marin Sorescu” National Theatre of Craiova is one of the world’s great theatres by the awards and honors obtained over the years all around the wold at the most important international festivals in Great Britain, France, Greece, Cyprus, Russia, Germany, Israel, Slovenia, Turkey, Hungary, Moldova, Bulgaria, Poland, and Bosnia-Herzegovina, such as the Edinburgh Festival, the Festival in Avignon, the Holland Festival in Amsterdam, Wiener Festwochen in Vienna, Theater Der Welt in Munich, the Tokyo Shakespeare Festival, the Israel Festival in Jerusalem, the Theatre Festival of Americas in Montreal, the Melbourne Arts Festival, the Scenic Arts Festival in Sao Paulo, the European Theatre Convention Festival in Stockholm, Lincoln Center Festival in New York, the Theatre of Nations Festival in Seoul, having more than 150 presences during the last 25 years and receiving 48 prizes.

The National Theatre “Marin Sorescu” of Craiova holds a special place in the history of Romanian theatre. Founded in 1850, it continued to function, despite the turmoil that characterized the history of Romania. In the first decades of its existence the National Theatre of Craiova produced only musicals and vaudevilles. In the years following 1900 the emphasis was placed on dramatic shows, representing mainly the universal classics, especially Shakespeare and Molière. In 1956, prestigious actors entered the doors of the theater (George Cozorici, Amza Pellea, Silvia Popovici, Constantin Rauţchi, Victor Rebengiuc, Dumitru Rucăreanu, Sanda Toma), together with their professor, Vlad Mugur, and marked a turning point. Those actors were considered to be the Golden generation of Romanian theatre. The team spirit manifested itself through an uncommon creative force, refreshing the means of expression of the actors and of acting itself. Well-known actors and directors, such as Silviu Purcărete, Vlad Mugur, Tompa Gabor, Mihai Măniuţiu, Mircea Cornişteanu and other directors propelled the theatre in a privileged position within the Romanian and international theatrical movement. The theatre presents a contemporary repertoire and invited productions by Eimuntas Nekrosius, Robert Wilson, Lev Dodin or Peter Brook. The collaboration between the TNC and Silviu Purcărete, which started in 1989, was and still is a moment of reference in shaping this institution, creating new performances recognized on national and international levels. The theatre gained international visibility thanks to the Shakespeare Festival, organized in collaboration with the “William Shakespeare” Foundation, under the direction of Emil Boroghină. With six editions, the festival succeeded in gathering the best companies and performances from all over the world and creating a space for debate on Shakespeare’s work.

Member of the European Theatre Convention (ETC) since 1995, the “Marin Sorescu” National Theatre of Craiova is the first Central and Eastern European theatre included in this international association, establishing itself as part of the elite of the Romanian and international theatre community through its performances. It is worth mentioning that the Craiova theatre was invited to present its performances in Brussels in 1996 within the cycle „Great European Theatres”. In May 1997, the famous British magazine „The Stage” compared the National Theatre of Craiova with Brecht’s Berliner Ensemble and Peter Brook’s Royal Shakespeare Company.

The ”Marin Sorescu” National Theatre of Craiova is the only theatre in Romania which was awarded the "Cultural Merit" Order in the rank of Commander, “as a sign of appreciation for the outstanding achievements of National Theatre's staff who made this cultural institution one of the most famous stages of Romania”. As a crowning achievement of the theatre’s activity in the last years, and as a recognition of the value of its artistic and technical team, in 2014, the director Robert Wilson accepted to collaborate with the “Marin Sorescu” Theatre and staged here the Rhinoceros by Eugène Ionesco. His work in Craiova represents the most important theatrical project in Romania of the latest years.  Due to its impressive history, to its continuous artistic activity, the numerous participations to famous international festivals, and numerous partnerships and projects, the ”Marin Sorescu” National Theatre of Craiova, an institution directly subordinated to the Ministry of Culture in Bucharest, is one of the elite theatres of Europe.
