A show with Horatiu MALAELE is a joy of the soul. The generous frame, the courtesy of the organizers, the passion dedicated to the public, make every show of the great Horatiu a divine pleasure.

It's nice to see and visit what's the so said "behind the scene". We're used to stay in front and watch the show, but this is a full overall sight of the rooms of the theater and of the machineries used for changing the sceneries....More

after being renovated, looks very good. Since it is a rather old building, I think it would have been better to give it a history note. Otherwise, it looks very good both outdoors and indoors. Since it is right in the center of the city,...More

This is a really interesting sculpture, worth visiting even if you're not going to the theatre. Take a walk around and look at it from different angles, very interesting.

While the building might be slightly imposing, the status grabs your attention. Worth a look as the status is very interesting

In front of the theater is one of the more surprising modern sculptures you are likely to see. The building of the theater itself is impressive and modern, but the sculpture gets the rating - it takes a while to take it all in.
