The State Opera in the city of Varna offers a romantic journey in the world of music to the residents and guests of the coastal city. The meeting of the artists with the audience during the pandemic takes place every Saturday from 6 pm to 6.20 pm from the balconies of the opera theatre on the central Independence square in Varna.

The first meeting passed with great interest from the audience on May 9. Apart from the square, the concerts can also be followed on social networks from the Varna Opera's Facebook page.


The May 9 streaming attracted over 50,000 views. Given this high audience interest, it was decided that the concerts from the balcony will continue every Saturday until June 13.

"They last 20 minutes, because according to the World Health Organization this period is not recognized as a first-line contact," said in an interview with Radio Bulgaria the director of the Theatre and Music Production Center in Varna, Daniela Dimova. She specified that the audience is extremely disciplined and enjoys the live performances, respecting the necessary social distance.

If you are in Varna, do not miss the opportunity to become part of this unusual music concert.
