A new premiere at the National Operetta and Musical Theater "Ion Dacian": "Rebecca"

Musical by Sylvester Levay & Michael Kunze
"Rebecca", one of the most successful productions by the team of Sylvester Levay
(music) – Michael Kunze (libretto), Grammy award winners and creators of the famous
productions "Mozart!", "Elisabeth" and "Marie Antoinette", had its premiere at the National
Operetta and Musical Theater "Ion Dacian" directed by Attila Bérres on June 16,
The show is based on the story of the eponymous novel written by Daphne du Maurier in 1938, which made the English author one of the most famous writers of that time. Like other works by the author, such as "Jamaica Inn" or "Birds," "Rebecca" was adapted for the big screen by the Oscar-winning director, Alfred Hitchcock, becoming one of his most well-known productions.

The musical premiered in Vienna at the Raimund Theater on September 28, 2006, directed by Francesca Zambello, and quickly became an international success, running sold-out for more than three consecutive years. In the years that followed, the musical was staged with the same success in Japan, Finland, Hungary, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Serbia, and the Czech Republic. The premiere at Charing Cross Theatre in London is scheduled for September 4, 2023, directed by Alejandro Bonatto.
The musical, brought to Romania for the first time by the National Operetta Theater "Ion
Dacian" in the 2010-2011 season, will be premiered in the new hall of the National Operetta and Musical Theater "Ion Dacian," at Blvd. Octavian Goga No.1, joining the famous titles in the current repertoire, such as My Fair Lady, The Gypsy Baron, The Secret of Marco Polo, Kiss me, Kate!, Victoria and Her Hussar or The Land of Smiles.

The events are presented from the perspective of a naive young woman without financial means, "I". Working as a companion for a wealthy American woman on vacation on the French Riviera, she meets Lord Maxim de Winter, a very wealthy Englishman, who soon becomes her husband. After the wedding, she accompanies him to the enigmatic and unfriendly house on the Manderley estate, where it seems that the spirit of Rebecca, the first Mrs. de Winter, who had died a year earlier in a mysterious accident at sea, is still present. Viewed with suspicion and treated maliciously by Mrs. Danvers, the housekeeper whose devotion to Rebecca seems pathological, the very young Mrs. de Winter feels increasingly overwhelmed by her new life, while her husband, Maxim, seems to sink deeper into the secrets of the dark house. An unexpected event further disturbs the lives of the characters, threatening to reveal unforeseen mysteries.
