As spring continues with a rather cold and cloudy weekend, the time is still perfect for indoor events. Let us help with some suggestions!

On Friday evening, French Swing – Jazz & Tango kicks off starting 7 pm at Puro&Bio. The French jazz music concert features vocals pianist Alex Burca at the piano, with vocals by Diana Tudor. Reservations are mandatory.

If you’d rather sing on Friday evening, you can go to Karaoke Friday – late night voices at Tunes Pub, starting 10 PM.

If you’re in the mood for going to the movies, you can go to One World festival, which takes place from March 13 until March 18. The festival, which focuses on human rights and documentary films is currently in its tenth edition. The over 50 documentaries will be projected at Cinema Elvira Popescu, Eforie and Taranul Roman Museum.

On Saturday you can go to Bulandra theatre and see “Fires”, starting 3 PM. The play features Maria Varlan, Constantin Dogioiu, Denis Hanganu, Cristina Constantinescu, Razvan Enciu, Antonia Din, Adrian Piciorea, Flavia Hojda and Dan Astilean. The director of the play is Irina Alexandra Banea.

Opera lovers can go to the play Cosi fan tutte, a low comedy in two acts, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a show organized in co-production with the Garsington Opera from UK, at the Bucharest National Opera on Saturday from 6:30 PM. The libretto is made by Lorenzo da Ponte and the play director is Tiberiu Soare. In short, it’s about a love comedy about two soldiers, Guglielmo and Ferrando who defend the fidelity of two sisters they want to marry. However, their friend Don Alfonso challenges them by telling that a woman cannot be faithful and bets that he can prove them.

On Sunday you can go to “Titanic Vals” play at 7 PM at Odeon theatre. The director of the play is Alexandru Dabija. The cast includes Ionel Mihailescu, Antoaneta Zaharia, Dorina Lazar, Nicoleta Lefter, Sabrina Iaschevici, Marius Damian, Ruxandra Maniu, Ioan Batinas, Alexandru Papadopol and Pavel Bartos.
