Open Air Opera Gala

September 6, 2021 admin

The fortress “Baba Vida”, on the shores of the Danube was once the main rampart of Vidin, a city in the high north-west of Bulgaria.

On the 9th of July 2021, surrounded by the cooling stones of the castle wall and under a cloudless summer evening sky, a music gala took place. Conducted by David Holzinger, the Sinfonietta Vidin performed a unique concert, starring the finest selection of pieces by composers like Giuseppe Verdi, Umberto Giordano, Giacomo Puccini, Francesco Cilea, Georges Bizet and Pietro Mascagni, performed by bulgarian Soloists who interrupted their international concert activity in order to find themselves on their native soil, performing together at this peerless event.
