Last March, we celebrated the bicentenary of the opening of the Farkas Street Theatre, and the Budapest-based Hungarian Theatre Museum and Institute organized an exhibition at the Gizi Bajor Theatre Museum on the occasion, led by curator Beáta Huber. The exhibition traces the history, glory days and challenges of the Farkas Street Theatre through surviving photographs, stage sets, blueprints, manuscripts, memorabilia and reminiscences.

The exhibition commemorates the theatre's prominent artists and patrons, while also showing the plans of Theatre and a piece of the stage board that Jenő Janovics took from the stage of the Farkas Street Theatre and incorporated into the stage of the Hunyadi Square National Theatre as a symbol of spiritual continuity.

The exhibition is open until the end of May, click here for additional details:

On 29 April, at 6 pm, a round table discussion entitled "Cluj Jubilees” will also take place at the Bajor Gizi Theatre Museum. Katalin Ágnes Bartha, theatre historian, and Eszter Szabó-Reznek, literary critic, will discuss the 100th and 200th anniversary celebrations of the birth of Hungarian professional theatre in Cluj with museologist Beáta Huber.
