25 october 2023 A Sensational Performance Of "Madame Butterfly" On Opera Day

World Opera Day - October 25, was celebrated with the exceptional performance of MADAME BUTTERFLY tonight in the hall of the Burgas State Opera.
All the components for an impactful performance - according to all canons of the art of the highest aesthetic quality, were present in the performance, which was experienced - on all levels - emotionally, intellectually, and musically, by everyone who created the impactful performance, under the baton of the great Bulgarian conductor Ivan Kozhuharov.
He was able to unite artists and musicians in a single liturgical process - such as is worthy of being presented on a festive day.
The audience - numerous and subject to the general emotional wave, felt it, appreciated it, and rewarded it - with absolute silence during the performance, and with stormy applause - after its end.
Kudos to everyone involved in creating the thrilling beauty on stage tonight!
