On Saturday, April 18, 2015, at the National Theatre I.L. Caragiale in Bucharest, an emblematic cultural edifice, was held the premiere of the show Insir’te margarite, directed by Dan Puric, after the dramatic poem of Victor Eftimiu. The event marked the opening of the Great Hall of the theatre, after its renovation and rehabilitation.
Romfilatelia, as a promoter of national cultural values, but also as a friend of Romanian actors and partner of the National Theatre in Bucharest, marked this moment with a new philatelic project entitled A new theatre for a new audience, consisting of the events promotion through the postal stationery printed in thousands of copies.
The postal stationery with the imprinted stamp on it continues the series of philatelic projects that Romfilatelia has initiated along the years for the theatre world, and could be seen by the public within the special philatelic panel made by Romfilatelia to mark the opening of the Great Hall of the National Theatre in Bucharest.
The event was attended by numerous personalities from high officials, members of the Romanian Parliament and Government, members of the Royal House of Romania, to authorities from the local administration and prominent representatives of the cultural and sports environment.
The host of the event, Mr. Caramitru, director of the National Theatre in Bucharest, delivered a speech before the show, noting the importance of the rehabilitation work made for the National Theatre.
Also, the Minister of Culture, Mr. Ioan Vulpescu, spoke about the importance of reopening the Great Hall and the entertainment premises of the institution.
By inaugurating today the building of the National Theatre in Bucharest we give Romania and its capital one of the largest and most modern cultural centers of which Europe can be proud, said the minister.
Another attendee of the event was the architect Romeo Belea, who led the renovation and who signed the initial project of the theatres building.
Romfilatelia, through the mission it has assumed, that of creating value for the Romanian postage stamps, has become, over time, an important messenger of national success, constantly promoting our countrys national culture, and through this philatelic project paying tribute to the National Theatre in Bucharest, a genuine Romanian cultural temple.
