Festival of the Opera and Ballet Arts in Stara Zagora 2018

In its 49th edition from 27 November to 8 December the Festival of the Opera and Ballet Arts in Stara Zagora offers various events in the spirit of the best traditions and a dose of intriguing provocations. Created in 1967 as December Musical Evenings, renamed in 1973 as the Festival of the Opera and Ballet Arts, it is the first in Bulgaria forum with a specific profile for musical performing arts. From 1974 to 1989 its framework included the National Review of the Opera and Ballet Arts. The social changes after 1989 and the fire in the opera house in 1991 caused three interruptions of the Festival in 1990, 2010 and 2013. After the 50th anniversary of its foundation was marked in 2017, in the following year of 2019 it will have its 50th edition. This year’s program is a specific recapitulation of the genre diversity which has marked the Festival through the years.    The beginning, on 27 November, will be the premiere of the classical ballet Don Quixote by Lu...See more
