After a three-month forced suspension, time in which the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj still broadcast its earlier highly successful performances online on its official Facebook page, the company returns with an open-air concept, on the Someş River bank. Before the end of the current season, audiences can see the company’s actors perform live once again on the stage set up in the courtyard of the theatre, near the river bank.
The productions of Homemade and Concord Floral will be each presented twice at the end of June. Homemade will take place on June 26 and 27 at 7 pm, while Concord Floral will be performed on June 28 and 29, at 9 pm.
The Theatre on Air online broadcasting series will continue on the official Facebook page of the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj in May as well. The weekly online performances will start at 8 pm on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday evenings, and will be available for 24 hours thereafter.

The Corvineum Foundation was created in 1996 with the aim of supporting the Hungarian language theatre and acting education in Transylvania.
During its existence spanning over more than two decades, the Foundation has made a significant contribution in helping the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj achieve its artistic goals, alongside raising its profile and recognition on a local, national and international level.
