It might be freezing outside throughout the weekend, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of reasons to get out of the house and enjoy a show, a concert, or a play at the theater.
Giacomo Puccini’s La Boheme will be performed on Friday, January 22, at the Bucharest National Opera for an early start to the weekend, with the show beginning at 7pm.

Another event happening in Bucharest over the course of this weekend is the Dress a tree with clothes for the homeless event organized by the Samusocial in Romania NGO, taking place from January 19 to January 24. According to the event’s Facebook page, “Samusocial in Romania will collect the donated clothes and will distribute them, daily, to the homeless”.
