About FITS
The Sibiu International Theatre Festival (FITS) is the first major festival in Central and Eastern Europe, one of the largest festivals in the world and the largest event dedicated to the performing arts in Romania. Annually, the festival is an occasion for celebration, with exceptional performances invited from countries such as: Great Britain, Germany, France, USA, Poland, Israel, Japan, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, China, Spain, The Republic of Moldova, etc.
FITS is organized under the High Patronage of the Presidency of Romania, with the support of the Sibiu City Hall, the Sibiu Local Council, the Government of Romania, the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of National Defence, the Romanian Cultural Institute, the Sibiu County Council. This event brings together great artists of the world stage, offering the audience the opportunity to enjoy some of the world's most acclaimed performances, internationally renowned and distinguished with prestigious awards.

The Sibiu International Theatre Festival reaches this year its 29th edition and will take place between June 24 and July 3, 2022, under the theme of Beauty. During this difficult but challenging period, the Sibiu International Theatre Festival, together with the "Radu Stanca" National Theatre of Sibiu and all associated structures, have managed to identify the best solutions, in such a way that the dialogue created together with the public stays under the sign of quality and emotion. After two years of pandemic, disease, suffering, war, migration and despair, beauty remains the engine of hope, and the miracle of beauty can save the world, as a great writer put it. In times like these, marked by financial difficulties, the threat of conflicts, isolation and vicissitudes, we must find a counterbalance in smile, harmony, trust in beauty, creation and inner joys.

 The performances of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival will be available in performance halls, in non-conventional spaces, in churches, in the central squares of Sibiu and in the homes of the spectators, through the official FITS website,, www.scena-, the Facebook page and the YouTube channel.

This year's edition is adapted so that the hundreds of performances that are part of the Festival's program are accessible to the widest possible audience, which is why we continue to organize the event in a triple dimension. FITS will have a physical component: on stage, in outdoor FITS locations, in historical spaces, public squares and churches, an online program: filmed/recorded performances specially adapted for the digital environment, as well as a hybrid dimension: live broadcasts in theatres and cinemas of performances performed either at the festival locations or on the stages of partner theatres around the world.

FITS maintains the tradition of large performances in open spaces, to which the public will have free access, and will additionally broadcast, in the online environment, a series of shows with free access.

The FITS 2022 programme will be available under
