ALTER-TANTERV – A NEW CULTURAL SERIES ON ERDÉLY TV, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE HUNGARIAN THEATRE OF CLUJ AND THE HUNGARIAN WRITERS’ LEAGUES OF TRANSYLVANIA (EMIL)

A new cultural series entitled ALTER-TANTERV is launched on Erdély TV. Within the framework of this programme well-known poets, writers, literary historians and literary critics approach the different eras of Hungarian literature in an exciting journey through time, reviving both the well-known and the undeservedly shunned masterpieces of the great representatives of Hungarian literature. As its title suggests, the series attempts to provide a wider space for approaching the high school level curricula of Hungarian literature, from a broader, novel perspective, with the aim of encouraging younger and older generations to read poetry, prose, drama, and thus receive all the riches that Hungarian literature has gifted us throughout the centuries.

FAREWELL TO MÁRIA BISZTRAI. THE GREAT LADY OF HUNGARIAN THEATRE DIRECTORS HAS LEFT US.

She was at the helm of the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj for sixteen years, a period that can historically be linked with Ceaușescu’s Cultural Revolution, as only the first two years of her mandate were spent exempt from strict censorship.

If we scroll through the repertoire of said sixteen years, we encounter a remarkable number of classical Hungarian dramas, comedies, folk plays, musical farces, as well as works written by 20th century contemporary Hungarian authors. There were productions created during this period that were performed up to three or four hundred times, such as A falu rossza (The Village Rogue) or Zsuzsi, or even the Piros bugyelláris (The Red Wallet), all of which survived Mária Bisztrai’s tenure.

As the daughter of Romanian Prime Minister Petru Groza and actress Duci Kabdebó, Mária Bistrai was aware of the cultural taste of the Hungarian audience in Transylvania, and considered it important that the dramatic masterpieces of Hungarian literature be continuously present in the company’s repertoire and due to her position, she was able to achieve this goal. In those years, the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj featured works by far more Hungarian authors than any other Hungarian company in Transylvania.
