The Sofia Opera and Balkanski Circus together with Bulgaria for Ukraine Foundation invited Ukrainian children and their mothers to watch the world-famous musical Shrek by David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori.
At the beginning of the spectacle, the Director of the Circus Aleksandar Balkanski greeted the Ukrainian children and all those present under the circus dome. He pointed out that this is the first joint project between the Sofia Opera and the Circus and this fact should be sealed, as the two institutes have yet to work. The circus and the opera art will always be relevant and alive in the hearts of young and old.
Ten Ukrainian mothers were bringing several children, aged between 3 and 13, who were happy to see the spectacle. After the performance the Ukrainian mothers Ira and Oksana thanked Academician Plamen Kartaloff, Director of the Opera, and Aleksandar Balkanski for their willingness to help Ukrainian children to be happy in Bulgaria, for their hospitality to diversify their lives.
