World Theatre Day celebrated on San Marino Stamps



Date of Issue : 4 June 2011

To celebrate World Theatre Day, San Marino Post issued a Souvenir sheet featuring performing Arts theme on 4 June 2011. World Theater Day is observed all over the world on 27 March.

This issue celebrates the art of performing a story live through a combination of words, gestures, music, dance, vocality, expressivity, sounds, designs and scenery. The artist who made the original design used a chromatic approach mainly to underline the emotions that the theatre arouses in the spectator watching acting, ballet, tragedies or comedies.

As a result, the souvenir sheet is covered from the top to the bottom with images of dancers and actors performing a play or opera, masks from Greek theatre and Venetian Commedia dell’Arte, parts of scenery, architecture and rays of light which, together with the symbols of the Palazzo Pubblico, the three Towers of San Marino and the allegory of the Statue of Liberty, wish to recall the importance of this visual art in the artistic panorama of the world.

World Theatre Day

World Theatre Day is an opportunity to celebrate Theatre in all its myriad forms. Theatre is a source of entertainment and inspiration and has the ability to unify the many diverse cultures and peoples that exist throughout the world. But theatre is more than that and also provides opportunities to educate and inform.

Theatre is performed throughout the world and not always in a traditional theatre setting. Performances can occur in a small village in Africa, next to a mountain in Armenia, on a tiny island in the Pacific. All it needs is a space and an audience. Theatre has the ability to make us smile, to make us cry, but should also make us think and reflect.

Theatre comes about through team work. Actors are the people who are seen, but there is an amazing set of people who are not seen. They are equally as important as the actors and their differing and specialist skills make it possible for a production to take place. They too must share in any triumphs and successes that may hopefully occur.

March 27 is always the official World Theatre Day.

With a view to enhancing operational efficiency and cost effectiveness in banknote printing at banknote presses, it has been decided to issue, to begin with, fresh banknotes of

` 500 denomination in packets, which may not necessarily all be sequentially numbered. This is consistent with international best practices. Packets of Banknotes in non-sequential number will, as usual, have 100 notes. The bands of the packets containing the banknotes in non-sequential number will clearly be superscribed with the legend, "The packet contains 100 notes not numbered sequentially.
