The prima Anna Tomowa-Sintow will train the singers at the Sofia Opera and Ballet for “Don Giovanni” by Mozart – one of the five opera premieres in the new season, informed at the press conference today the theatre’s Director Acad. Plamen Kartaloff.
In the autumn another famous Bulgarian opera singer – Raina Kabaivanska, will propose the best participants from her traditional master class for the same title. With the artists from the opera will work also Krassimira Stoyanova and other well-known artists – Bulgarian and foreign, for different productions. Necessary are many means and a complex organization, in order to make our long-standing dream for an opera studio to the theatre come true, said Kartaloff.
For the necessity of such school told also Anna Tomowa-Sintow in a video-greeting to our company for the new season. The prima points out that all big opera theatres in the world have such studios, where the young singers, newly graduated, are being trained for two years, by playing small roles too. This way they mature as professionals, as well as as personalities. Just then they are ready to fulfil the mission of the artist, of real art – to nourish the people’s souls, to raise the human and the professional level of the entire community, said Anna Tomowa-Sintow.
The first opera premiere for the season on Big stage is “Simon Boccanegra” by Verdi. The rest are “Don Pasquale” by Donizetti, staging by Prof. Svetozar Donev, with which will be marked his 85th Anniversary, and “Il trovatore” by Verdi by Filippo Tonon. The film director Andreas Pantzis is invited for “Apollo et Hyacinthus” by Mozart – on Chamber stage.
To Pancho Vladigerov’s 120th Anniversary is dedicated the premiere of his ballet “A Legend about the Lake” under the directing of Donvena Pandoursky. The other new ballet spectacle – “Carmina Burana” will make Fredy Franzutti.
The prima-ballerina Krassimira Koldamova will celebrate her 80th Anniversary with “Carmen” on 3 February. In the gala spectacle “Don Carlo” by Verdi on 23 December – at the occasion of the 90th Anniversary of our eminent conductor Ivan Marinov – on the stage will appear famous soloists and debutants – Alexandrina Pendachanska and Kamen Chanev, Aleksandrina Stoyanova – as Eboli, and Atanas Mladenov – Rodrigo.
