The construction of the stage for the premiere of the opera “Nabucco”
The construction of the stage for the premiere of the opera “Nabucco” by Verdi begins. It will
be erected next to the north facing part of the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, on the side of Moskovska Street, informed the Sofia Opera.
The trapezium stage with the form of unfolded roll – with 40 meters length and 10 meters depth and the 4-floor Semiramida gardens, built on a massive pyramidal construction, as well as veritable Stairways to heaven, which ends with Moses’s hands, will impress the huge audience with the new large-scale creative challenge with Maestro Plamen Kartaloff’s signature.
Giuseppe Verdi’s “Nabucco” – from 23 to 31 July, for the second time after “Boris Godunov” by Mussorgsky in 2014. The Sofia Opera will transform the space around the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral into a stage, on which will be presented the immortal opera by the great Italian. Verdi’s third opera turned into the title, which launched him forever into the orbit of the greatest in the world of this art. The theatre’s newest premiere is dedicated to 125 Years Sofia Opera.
The stage director Plamen Kartaloff reminded us of one very emotional and fatal phrase in the opera “Nabucco”, “which could be connected with today’s demographic, political, spiritual and economic crisis in our country: “Oh, Motherland, beautiful and lost...”, noted from the Opera.
