“Luceafarul/The Vesper by Mihai Eminescu has always been for me more than a poem. I broke into the poetry’s essence, let my imagination fly, I was 101% dedicated to capture exactly the subtility of the verses. I was involved in all stages of the production from the Development, Pre-production, Production and Post production, “ Ion Cebotari said back then.
“Luceafarul/ The Vesper” is a narrative poem that Mihai Eminescu first published in 1883. It is considered his masterpiece, and of the Romanian literature in general, as well as one of the last milestones in Europe’s Romantic poetry. Mihai Eminescu spent ten years to write it.
The Vesper begins as a typical “one upon a time” fairy tale, with the heroine Cătălina, daughter of a royal couple, shown waiting impatiently for nightfall, when she gazes upon the Vesper, but the story will actually evolve as a self-reflection on the poet’s condition as a genius, and an illustration of his philosophy of love.
