After a “Rhinegold” with many visual effects and scenic impressions... Read more...
Yesterday night the “Ring of the Nibelung” started once more in the laudable production of General Director of the Sofia Opera and Ballet, Acad. Plamen Kartaloff.

My concept was based on the idea that life is a dream, which flows through our fingers. This is why one should not put barriers in front of oneself and dig oneself in them, but pay attention to one’s inner world. We are not born to creep, but to fly on the wings of our impulses and innermost desires. With this staging of “Eugene Onegin” I would like to make the audience immerse itself in one beautiful utopia, which has... Read more...

So many are the years, which have passed since the first ballet spectacle in Bulgaria – “Coppélia” in 1928, which is considered to be also the beginning of the ballet of the Sofia Opera. For this less than a century the artists, who dedicated themselves to this art in our country, have recorded achievements, with which can praise themselves only the... Read more...
When Paul Dukas, Lyubomir Pipkov’s teacher, pronounced the famous phrase “You excavate out of the earth а style”, he hardly suggested the immeasurable depths of the mythological aspect, of the symbolic, put in in this opera. But he felt it with his intuition of an artist. Decades in succession the signs of the black earth have remained unread, the audience and the critique were not ready for the mythological time, in which... Read more...
