Emphatic to the difficult situation of all refugees from Ukraine who find safety in Bulgaria, the Sofia National Opera in cooperation with Zonta Club Saint Sofia presented as a gift the performance "The Magic Flute" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Ukrainian version with narrator Tatiana Zhivotova. The Ukrainian Tatiana Zhivotova has been a member of the artistic team of the Sofia Opera for two months already and specially welcomed the guests in Ukrainian traditional wear. She presented a musical performance of a famous Ukrainian song as a gift, accompanied by her brother, who also found refuge in Bulgaria.
The performance began with welcoming words by Prof. Plamen Kartaloff, Director of the Sofia Opera and Ballet and finished with special gifts for the young guests, provided by Zonta Club St. Sofia.
We believe that such an initiative can enable these people escape for a moment from the difficult reality, in which they are placed, driven by the strong belief that art not only unites but also heals human sorrow and acts as a glimpse of hope for the goodness and beauty in life.
