The National Operetta Theatre is celebrating today the 100th birthday anniversary of the late Ion Dacian, the “spiritual patron” of the institution, with a gala concert performed by three of the most praised tenors of the moment – Florin Budnaru, Cristian Mogosan and Lucian Corchis – with soprano Andra Pop as special guest. The Operetta Theatre orchestra will be conducted by Constantin Grigore. The concert will take place under the aegis of ‘Elite Art Club UNESCO – Proms of Delight’, and will be performed exactly on the birth date of Ion Dacian. The solo moments of the concert will be performed after the original score sheets of the Rome concert in 1990. Tenor Ion Dacian, one of the most prominent figures of Romanian operetta, was born on October 11, 1911, in Mures County and died on December 8, 1981.
