"The Bald Soprano", Ionesco's debut play, was staged for the first time in 1950 in Paris. The show marked the transition of modern theatre from the Aristotelian tradition to the theatre of the absurd. The play brings forward people's inability to communicate and the deficiencies of their own identity. The staging of this play is also intended to mark one century since the author's birth.

Partners and sponsors involved in the project are Timişoara City Council, The Danube Swabian Cultural Foundation in Baden-Württemberg Land and Art Act.

The next performances are scheduled for:
Friday, April 3rd 2009, 7 p.m.
