Concert “A Story from Old Bucharest” | Odeon Theater | September 18

The atmosphere of Little Paris in Bucharest’s days is evoked by the concert “Story from Old Bucharest” scheduled for Sunday 18th September at the Odeon Theatre. From the tango, foxtrot and trapezes heard mainly in vaudeville and revista theaters in old Bucharest, to the classical and café concert music, the show offers a foray into the fascinating life of the stories of a near-lost world buried under layers of oblivion that music reconstructs in an incomparable way. The concert features Romanian light music performed by Miruna Ionescu and Valentin Albeșteanu, accompanied by Taraful de Oraş and Tenor Alin Stoica as guest. The project is organized by the ProCultArt Association together with the Odeon Theatre.
