Gala Opening FIRE/CELEBRATION (8 June 2019)
Concert, spreading light - or how sound turns into fiery tongues, into instrumental fireworks, into explosions of colors.
The three-dimensional visual effects on the Ancient Theatre will react live by taking into account the dynamics of the music by the orchestra and performers - a project that will be applied for the first time to classical music in Bulgaria by Petko Tanchev and Atanas Dinchev's SenseLab digital experiments studio. Orchestral mysteries, ecstatically dancing in the space of the Ancient Theater voices, bodies and images - and the unheard-of music of Skryabin, Messian, Verdi, Nenov, Wagner, Ockeghem, Spassov. How does the sound enchants, heals ... And how it rejoices.
