About the performers and the play:


"In Ion Caramitru’s performance, we all feel 'the charmed and heart-rending reverie of Shakespeare.' His presence animates, fills the show with a sacred emotion. An actor with Shakespearean calling..." (Ludmila Patlanjoglu) 

"With Ion Caramitru on stage, you are protected. You cannot go astray. It is as if you always had in your chest pocket a secret safety code. Or a magic wand. You feel inspired. And strong." (Răzvan Niță)  


"Upon departure, one takes home the joy of having witnessed an artistic performance of first magnitude – Ion Caramitru, Mihai Călin, István Téglás – supported by an excellent team. The show aims at offering the audience a state of wellbeing. And it succeeds." (Gabriela Hurezean)
