Romania and Moldova Culture Day

At the beautiful Morzin Palace, where the Romanian Embassy is located, we celebrated the Culture Day of both Romania and the Republic of Moldova. The event was hosted by H.E. Mrs. Antoaneta Barta, Ambassador of Romania, and H.E. Mr. Alexandru Codreanu, Ambassador of the Republic of Moldova.

The cultural program included a team of very talented International ballet dancers from Romania and Moldova.

On a personal note: I was born in Romania. As a child, I remember my older sister dancing as a ballerina. She was extremely talented, and what I remember most was her dancing as the dying swan in Saint-Saëns’ “Le Cygne”, from Carnival of the Animals. These memories came rushing back to me, watching Ballerina Alina Nanu performing this ballet.

Thank you very much for such a great cultural event.
