This year too, the Sofia Opera continues its mission for integration of the youngest audience into the world of art.
For the 12th year, the festival OPERA IN THE PARK was opened on 19 June in the park of the Academy of Defence „G.S. Rakovski” with the spectacle for children “The Three Piggies” by Alexander Raichev.
For the first time “Concerts for Babies” will be presented in the open air. The accent this year is the celebration of the 80th Anniversary of the composer Georgi Kostov with the spectacles “Shegobishko” and “A story with Ducks, Mecho and Lisa”. With great enthusiasm the young artists act for the children. Unforgettable remain the meetings with the favourite fairy-tale characters Little Red Riding Hood, Winnie-the-Pooh, the Three Piggies, the Wolf, Papageno and Papagena and many others.
The project of the Opera in the park of the Academy of Defence “G.S. Rakovski” is realized with the support of Sofia Municipality – Calendar of the cultural events for 2021 and is under the patronage of the Mayor of Sofia Municipality Mrs. Yordanka Fandakova in the frames of the programme “Opera in the Park”.
“It was wonderful, magical! The children were gazing dreamily! We thank the whole artistic team, which gave this fascinating performance! Everything is set, organized and in conformity with the possibilities of the children to follow the action and to be interesting and pleasant also for the parents till the end of the spectacle! These days we shall visit with pleasure other of your productions for children too!”

“For the second time we are watching “The Three Piggies” with our grandson and like the previous time, our 4-year-old Krasimir is happy to enjoy again his favourite characters! The artists are marvellous and they present sincerely their personages, so that in the hall the children’s audience reacts with exclamations and great joy! It is known that it isn’t easy to make art for children and it is necessary a sincere feeling in the performers! And here it is, today too your singers enchanted the kids and you see how freely they react and applaud the more emotional scenes!”

“For the second time we visit a spectacle for children of the Sofia Opera in the park of the Academy of Defence and again we are fascinated by this performance! It is wonderful that by worsening of the weather you have the possibility just for minutes to transfer the spectacle in the Big hall of the Academy and this way under best conditions the children can enjoy their favourite characters! Wonderful was also this performance of one so talentedly created work for the littlest ones! With great pleasure we shall visit you again and again, because our daughter insists all the time to watch these unforgettable productions for children! From all our hearts we wish you a very, very successful season!”
