Bulgarian National Radio – Two new productions of Bulgarian works presents the Sofia Opera and Ballet
The Director of the Sofia Opera and Ballet Academician Plamen Kartaloff presented in front of the audience of broadcasting “Horizont” the new musical and stage temptations, which the opera will offer to its admirers during next season. Upcoming is one really very dynamic, varied and rich at national and international events repertoire with different styles and composer schools – a warranty for the balance in the repertoire, which really deserves attention, marked Plamen Kartaloff, while adding:
We are preparing the opening of the season exactly on the International Music Day – on First of October, and again with Richard Wagner with our newest production – “Parsifal” by the German master, we shall open festively our new season. Parallel to that in preparation are four titles – two opera and two ballet ones. These are “Carmen” by Bizet and one title, one of the most beautiful pages in the Bulgarian opera dramaturgy – these are “Yana’s Nine Brothers” by Lyubomir Pipkov. We are preparing also two ballets – “Le corsaire” and “The Fire-Dancer”.
After our very unusual guest-performance – with Bulgarian opera singers, with a German repertoire – this is Richard Wagner’s tetralogy “Der Ring des Nibelungen”, in Germany, one of the biggest accents of the new season is the guest-performance of the Sofia Opera on two stages, shared Acad. Kartaloff:
The new stage and the historical stage of the Bolshoi Theatre – during two weeks our theatre will be guest with 6 titles in May 2018, which I consider for one of the greatest and prestigious events of the Bulgarian national music culture.
Parallel to this is our attention to the summer festivals and exactly one such provocation – we are opening a new stage on the seaside, in complex “Albena”, where we shall present one musical, added Plamen Kartaloff and he pointed out that the Opera of the Peaks Festival at the Belogradchik Rocks will also have a new repertoire. We have also many other events, which I think that the audience will share because of its interest in our quite unconventional repertoire looking into a mirror, which is actually the aesthetic taste of one theatre, marked the Director of the Sofia Opera.
