Zholdak’s ‘Turandot’ at FIDENA Theater Festival

‘Turandot,’ a play written by Carlo Gozzi, directed by Andriy Zholdak and produced by the ‘Radu Stanca’ Theater in Sibiu, will be presented at the FIDENA Theater Festival, next year in September in Bochum, Germany.

Zholdak’s show was invited to take part in the event after its September 30 and October 1 premiere was attended by Annette Dabs, the director of the German festival. The ‘Turandot’ show is inspired by a story from the French orientalist Petis de la Croix’s ‘The Book of One Thousand and One Persian Stories.’ The story is used by the director as a basis for creating a surreal world in which Gozzi himself pulls the strings.

The theater’s production brings on the stage the story of a Chinese princess who is promised to marry the suitor that manages to solve three riddles.

The scenography is signed by Dragos Buhagiar, the sound-design is the creation of Vladimir Klykov, the text was adapted by playwright Lia Bugnar and the leading roles are interpreted by Cristina Flutur, Ema Vetean, Constantin Chiriac, Florin Cosulet, Catalin Patru and Pali Vecsei. The FIDENA Theater Festival is an event in which the puppet theater, the visual art, the dance and the film are creating new and fascinating universes. With its 52nd edition scheduled in early September 2010, the FIDENA Theater Festival will take place in Bochum with the support of the German National Arts Council and the North Rhine-Westphalia Arts Council. It is an event included in the Ruhr/Essen – European Capital of Culture 2010 program.

The Romanian audience will have the opportunity of seeing the ‘Turandot’ show in Sibiu on October 7 at 7 PM in the ‘Radu Stanca’ National Theater and in Bucharest on November 1 at 9 PM in the Grand Hall of the ‘I.L. Caragiale’ National Theater as part of the National Theater Festival.
