The first opening of Verdi's Il Trovatore was a great triumph of the composer. The piece became popular very quickly and operas from all over the world would present it on their stages. The music is very melodious and dramatic. It gives the singers a chance to truly shine. The arias are very impressive and difficult to perform. The libretto, on the other hand, enables the director to create many epic group scenes. Our Il Trovatore will be such an epic piece created with great momentum.

Golden Masque Award for MILAN DAVID for Best set design of the season 2006-2007 in CARMEN
Carmen is one of the most popular operas in the world. What is astonishing, the premiere of Bizet's work, which took place in 1875 in Paris, was a complete failure, very difficult to bear for the author. The piece shows a story of a passionate Gypsy smuggler, full of eroticism, inciting soldiers to desertion and dancing and singing in taverns. It did not really go with the traditional vision of the opera. At first the press called the performance immoral and wanted it to be forbidden for the young audience. However, the theme, so unusual for the opera, soon became the biggest advantage of the work...
