12 august 2020 The Summer Theater Was On Broadway Wave
Exciting musical and artistic evening - another performance of the Broadway musical "Kiss Me, Kate!" to the music of Cole Porter, directed by Alexander Tekeliev, immersed the audience in the Summer Theater - Burgas on Tuesday night / August 11 / in the dynamic atmosphere of a refined, but at the same time super fun aesthetic pleasure!
The event was part of the Burgas Music Festival "Emil Chakarov", realized by the State Opera - Burgas and the Municipality of Burgas.
The overall look of the attractive production is united by the direction of Alexander Tekeliev - adhering to the parameters of the classical musical, but with the added value of the original author's handwriting with avant-garde flavor. The scenography, which allows for the ideological development of the show, through the play of shadows, giving a different perspective to each detail of the production, belongs to Denis Ivanov, who is also the creator of the impressive costumes. The choreography of Zhelka Tabakova gave the opportunity to the whole ballet ensemble of the Burgas Opera to weave its energy charge into the overall look of the performance. Assistant directors are Lina Peeva and Peter Tiholov were on stage - in the images of Hetty and Senator Howell. The whole choir of the Opera was on the stage, with conductor Nevena Mihalova, who was also a full participant in the attractive vision and messages of stage action, concertmaster was Yordan Kovachev. Behind the conductor's desk is Tsanislav Petkov, who did a brilliant job with his creative task and managed to bring out the musical accents, achieving the characteristic glamorous and energizing atmosphere of the Broadway musical.
This unusual summer season, the performances, as well as the chamber events of the State Opera - Burgas carry the original handwriting and aura of the unusual and the accumulated energetic creative charge. Everything was on the same level last night, on the stage of the Summer Theater - and artistry, and balance, and lining of the invested author's ideas, and personal charisma of the performers. The specialists from the technical services also deserve good words - for the professionalism they showed in the large-scale and difficult for stage realization staging, requiring dynamic intervention and short amplitudes of reaction.
