A Press Conference with John Malkovich






July 21, 2023

In July, the National Theatre in Timișoara was the venue for two performances of The Infernal Comedy, starring John Malkovich. Part of the European Festival of Performing Arts Timisoara – Romanian Drama Festival (FEST-FDR), it was probably the most popular theatrical event of the year, especially judging by how quickly the tickets were sold out. I didn’t get a chance to see the play, but I was able to do something I enjoyed even more: interpreting at the press conference.


Hosted by National Theatre manager Ada Hausvater, with Romanian voice-over translation legend Irina Margareta Nistor as a special guest, the event was broadcast live on the National Theatre’s Facebook page. It included a panel discussion with John Malkovich and Orchester Wiener Akademie founder Martin Haselböck, followed by a Q&A session with the journalists.
