The establishment of the institution was influenced by several initiatives coming from some personalities of the Romanian culture and some cultural institutions.
TNME director Petru Hadârcă said that a monumental and memorable achievement was the show Thebaida by Victor Eftimiu of 1924-1925 season, under the direction of Dauș.
