The first sold out performance at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival (FITS) 2022 is “Faust”, “Radu Stanca” National Theatre of Sibiu’s impressive production.
Even though its premiere took place 15 years ago, “Faust”, written by J. W. Goethe, and directed by Silviu Purcărete, continues to enthral theatre lovers worldwide and is the first sold-out
performance of this year’s edition of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival.
Celebrating its 29th edition, this year FITS takes place between June 24 and July 3, this year’s theme being BEAUTY, and the programme as well as tickets are available under: www.sibfest.ro
“I am proud that, yet again, a Romanian production, a production created here, in Sibiu, is among the most sought after in the FITS programme also this year. At the same time, tickets are sold at lightspeed and I wish to thank the FITS audience for its generosity and for the openness it manifests towards the most varied types of productions, from Japanese Noh
to fado, from circus to concerts in places of worship, from well-known actors to young ones who are just starting out on their acting careers. Unfortunately, the performance venues in Sibiu have a capacity limited to a couple of hundred seats, so that those who postpone choosing the performances they would like to watch at FITS might be faced with the unpleasant surprise of not finding tickets anymore”, explained Constantin Chiriac, President of FITS and Manager of TNRS.
For the July 2 performance, tickets for “Faust” are already sold out, and spectators only have the chance of attending this performance as part of FITS on July 3, however, there are very few tickets left also in this case.
Other performances from the Festival’s programme which are almost sold out, will be presented in short below.
Mister Ibrahim and the flowers of the Quran, by and starring Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt, offers the FITS audience not only an encounter with two special characters and their remarkable relationship, but also the privilege of watching this performance directed and performed by one of the world’s most appreciated creators.
Kiritza or the game of… - direction, choreography and free adaptation from the plays of Vasile Alecsandri by Gigi Căciuleanu – will be performed only once during FITS, on June 26, and the lovers of this cult-status character in the Romanian cultural space had better hurry if they like to meet Kiritza live as part of a performance authored by the Bucharest National Theatre!
The House is an adaptation from Maxim Gorki staged at the “Satiricus Ion Luca Caragiale” National Theatre by director Dumitru Acriș.

Whom are we willing to sacrifice and for what scope?
