Shakespeare International Festival in Bucharest

April 30 thru May 2, Bucharesters have the opportunity to see Hamlet, Romeo si Julieta and Oro De Otelo, in the theatrical vision of three major contemporary directors, Nikolay Kolyada –  renowned for his challenging  creations, Oskaras Korsunovas – one of the most awarded contemporary directors, and Eugenio Barba – for whom theater is a communal symbolic expression. Odeon Theatre –Majestic Hall, Bulandra  – Liviu Ciulei Hall and ArCuB Hall will be the hosts of this year’s Shakespeare International Festival in Bucharest.On Tuesday, My 1, noontime, the press Conference – Meeting with directors Nikolay Kolyada and Oskaras Korsunovas will be held at  ArCuB Hall, a dialog about the director’s role in contemporary theater. Kolyada and Kor?unovas are both stage directors and managers of theater companies.On the same day, at Bulandra Theater (Liviu Ciulei Hall), at 6 pm, OKT / Vilnius Municipal Theater (Lithuania) will perform Romeo and Juliet  by W. Shakespeare, directed by  Oskaras Kor?unovas.Oskaras Kor?unovas belongs to that category of directors who were successful from the very start of their careers. Born in  1969, in Vilnius, Lithuania, he graduated from the Lithuanian Academy of Music, theater direction section, in 1993. His productions encompass both contemporary and classical  dramaturgy. Korsunovas takes the chaotic, paradoxical, often absurd and fragmented reality of our time and  transforms it into a meaningful principle presented in the form of a very  modern theater. The Lithuanian director won the Lithuanian National Art and Culture and Meyerhold Awards, and  in 2002, the  Europe Prize New Theatrical Realities.Tickets for Romeo and Juliet can be purchased, starting April 23, at the ticket booth of the Bulandra Theater – Liviu Ciulei Hall (Bd. Schitu Magureanu nr.1).Details on HYPERLINK “http://www.arcub.ro” www.arcub.ro and facebook.com/ArCuB
