Throughout the years, Queen Mary Theatre in Oradea has accustomed its audience with a successful repertoire, by creating a balance between the international and national dramaturgy, between classic and modern. At the present time, the theatre has, besides the Grand hall, Arcadia Hall – the place where we perform short plays, readings, poetry recitals and also experimental productions.
Queen Mary Theatre has the honour of having launched some of the greatest Romanian artistic directors, who had brilliant careers (directors such as Victor Ioan Frunză, Alexandru Darie and Alexandru Colpacci). Also, “Iosif Vulcan” Artistic Crew has had the privilege, especially in the last seasons, to work with famous people in the theatre industry, such as: Alexandru Dabija, Mihai Măniuţiu, Alexander Hausvater, Petru Vutcărău, Claudiu Goga and many others.
Thanks to these fruitful collaborations, the theatre in Oradea has re-entered in the critics’ attention, raising constantly the number of spectators, and obtaining nominations to the most prestigious prize in the business: the UNITER Gala, in 2006. We have also participated in several festivals both in Romania and abroad (South Korea, Italy, Croatia, Turkey, Slovakia, Hungary, Ukraine, Republic of Moldova). In 2012 the theatre recaptures the attention of the UNITER Association, through the successful performance “Fiddler on the Roof”, which obtains two nominations for “Best Scenographer” (Vioara Bara) and for “Best Actress in a Supporting Role” (Ioana Dragoș Gajdo for the part of Golde).
