Marin Sorescu National Theatre

National Culture Day will be celebrated this year at the Marin Sorescu National Theatre, with an audience in the hall.

The repertoire includes the poems: We were both children…, Oh, stay, Wandering through the woods as a boy, Blue flower, Epistle to Chibici, Venus and Madonna, Epigones, The Thoughts of Poor Dionysus, From the waves of time…, Desire, Sleep, So tender…, Why don't you come to me…, I'm far from you, Over the tops, Out of hundreds of masts, Glossa, Books, Life, Letter I, Letter II, Letter III, Letter IV, Letter V, Luceafărul, Ode (in ancient meter), The years have passed, I have one more longing, Memento mori .

Admission to the public is free and will follow the rules of interaction and behaviour recommended during the pandemic period.

Emil Boroghină:

"... Eminescu's poetry is a lifelong obsession and even my last recital I performed in Tel Aviv of the love poetry of the world, in fact "Love at Senectute. Stronger than death is love ...", also ended with three sonnets from Eminescu. It was the famous biblical poem Song of Songs with which we began perhaps the most beautiful page of love poetry in the world, then we moved on to the Renaissance, to Dante and Ronsard and Shakespeare, in fact it was Dante, Petrarch, Michelangelo, Ronsard, Shakespeare and Eminescu, and I'm glad we ended with the sonnets of Mihai Eminescu."

Marius Dobrin:

"The jeweller Emil Boroghina, proving now, besides his love for this art, his patience in speaking his word after word, is surprising the new generation. I find significant the astonishment of a Radio Guerilla programme maker who, after a string of young actors in a format dedicated to poetry, discovered Emil Boroghina's spirited mobility through the lyrical universe: all from memory! This astonishment of the radio man says a lot about a certain characteristic of the present.  Otherwise, as contemporaries of a legend, we can take note of the silhouette of the man who walks out of the gate of his garden house, setting off at a measured pace, his head slightly bowed, towards the theatre. Always towards the theatre."
