The Musical – Total Art with Total Actors


A performance is a common adventure, the result of the “confrontation” of several creators who meet, each of them bringing the perspective of their own domain, in order to decipher a play that is meant to be represented on stage. The musical satisfies the contemporary audience’s need for novelty and dynamism, as its main characteristic is the bringing together of arts: theatre – through acting, literature – through the libretto, music – through scores and vocal interpretation, dance, and painting – through scenography. The 13th edition of Gala Vedetelor – VedeTEatru, 2016, the Festival organized by George Ciprian Theatre in Buzău, had MUSIC as its main celebrity. The audiences could attend some of the best performances of dance theatre, concert-theatre, or musicals, such as: ArtOrchestra, directed by Horia Suru, Zic Zac, performed by its young creators Andrea Gavriliu and Ştefan Lupu, or West Side Story, created by the choreographer-director Răzvan Mazilu.
