After the successful end of the theatre season, Vladimir Karamazov indulged himself in a well-deserved holiday at the northern Black Sea coast. The only cultural event he will visit in the summer will be the International Music Festival “Mozart’s Celebrations”, which will be held for the 14th time in Pravets in hotel complex RIU Pravets Resort. Since he is a fan of opera and ballet, he was invited by the organizers as a special guest at the festival, which will be held from 12th to 15th of July, 2018. Here is what Vlado shared: “It will be my pleasure to visit this summer forum of the opera and ballet art. During the season, I did not have time to watch productions that I wanted, and it is a great reason to catch up. Also, I will be able to set my watch right on the world trends in this art, because this year’s selection is quite interesting. My attention was captured by two performances – the Mozart Opera “The Magic Flute” and the ballet “Swan Lake” by P. I. Tchaikovsky at the Marionette Opera – Lindau, Germany. As you know, I have studied puppetry for a year in the Academy, and I know how hard this art is. I cannot imagine ballet with puppets, and especially “Swan Lake”. I look forward to seeing it. When I heard also of the Lake Stage, I realized the festival is carried out under the stars at the beautiful lake of the complex. It is wonderful that summer cultural stages are reviving. Let’s get out of the halls and get under the stars. It is an experience that cannot be compared to anything. Adding to this the beautiful opera and ballet art, the evenings will be guaranteed to be unforgettable.”
The Saturday Festival evening at the RIU Pravets Resort piano bar will be dedicated to the Bulgarian musical genius Pancho Vladigerov, the 100th anniversary of the birth of the eminent American conductor, composer and pianist Leonard Bernstein, and the 120th anniversary of the birth of George Gershwin. Their works will be performed by Teodora Kasmetska-Sorokow – violin, Ruzha Semova – piano, Aleksandar Vladigerov – trumpet and flugelhorn, Konstantin Vladigerov – piano and clarinet.
