Bucharest National Opera House

In 1843, the first Italian theater was inaugurated in Bucharest, staging Norma by Bellini, followed by Lucia of Lamermoor by Donizetti, The Barber of Seville and Cinderella by Rossini. Henrieta Carl’s company invites to Bucharest soloists from Milan, and for sometime, the lyrical company led by the famous Giuseppe Villa and Giuseppe Barbieri also performs, while the students of the Philharmonic School present the first performance of Semiramis by Rossini. After 1850, beside the Italian theater some Romanian lyrical companies, led by N. Luchian, Costache Caragiale and M. Millo, also perform in the season.
