The National Theatre of Operetta and Musical “Ion Dacian” presents
Butterflies – Premiere
November 12th at 6 p.m.
“Butterflies” is a dance show that tells the story of a young woman who escapes from a hostile world to reach a dream world, full of color. It is a story about metamorphosis and evolution, about self-discovery but also about the search for perfect love. An initiatory journey or maybe just a dream. All these are transmitted to the public through different dance styles, through the scores of some composers such as P.I. Tchaikovsky or E. Grieg, but also through arias from famous musicals, performed by Daniela Bucșan and Letiția Vlădescu.

The direction and choreography of the show are signed by Relu Dobrin, who explains that what he managed to stage is the vision and his own answers to questions such as:
“What does reality mean? Where does the concrete end and how can we overcome its barriers to go beyond, to that place where magic rules? How many times have we humans wondered if we would find what we are looking for, the meaning of all our turmoil, in the material world, in this palpable existence? And if we could go beyond, if we could transcend time and space to enter another dimension where there are no obstacles and where we find out that everything is different than we can understand, what do we have to give up? We would probably have to give up any fear of the unknown, leave behind any unworthy thoughts or maybe even give up the current form of our existence. And what would we look like after this metamorphosis?
Here are some of the questions I asked myself while working on the “Butterflies” show. Questions to which it is not at all easy to look for the answer and which also provoked the great thinkers. But until we get to solve these riddles, I propose a personal answer, a small gate imagined by me that I open to you for a moment of escape… a part of a dream that I invite you to live together with us.”
