The recent pandemic restrictions have forced theatres to celebrate World Theatre Day online for the last two years. But for World Theatre Day 2022, the theatre will once again be celebrated in person as a community space. In this context, on Sunday, March 27, the Hungarian Theatre of Cluj awaits its audiences with a varied programme of theatrical events:

  • 11 am – 1 pm


The unconventional edition of What’s It All About? will center around the message of this year’s World Theatre Day, a theatre poster exhibition and the participants' memories and experiences within the theatre. Meet, play, create and talk - without expectations. Or World Theatre Day experienced in the here and now.

Led by: Tünde Kocsis

Participation in the theatre education programme is free of charge, advance registration is required at tunde.kocsis@huntheater.ro.

Registration deadline: Friday, March 25.

  • 1 pm, 3 pm


Guided tours led by the company's actors will give participants an insight into the exciting behind-the-scenes secrets of the theatre's inner workings. The programme is free of charge, but advance booking is required by emailing eva.marton@huntheater.ro. Visits start from the ground floor foyer of the theatre at the indicated times.

Registration deadline: Friday, March 25.

The exhibition will be hosted by András Visky, Deputy Artistic Director of the theatre

Venue: Upstairs Foyer

Eugène Ionesco: MACBETT

"Ionesco's Macbett is not a simple parodic, inside out reversal of Shakespeare's masterpiece, but an x-ray as well as a revelation of the type of brutalized public life that has become close to being absurd. The play presents, through relentless murder, public life that is animated and pushed into the realm of chaos by constantly stimulated hostility. At the same time, Ionesco's Macbett talks about the absurdity of conspiracies. He addresses today's spectator with surprising acuity." - András Visky

Directed by Silviu Purcărete

Venue: Main Hall

The production has been nominated for the Best Performance of 2021 award by the Romanian Theatre Association (UNITER).

Tickets for Macbett can be purchased at the theatre’s ticket office (weekdays between 10 am and 2 pm) or online at www.biletmaster.ro.
