For the second year in a row, a gala Opera concert sponsored by Belgrade Waterfront was held on the open stage of Sava Promenada. The audience enjoyed the beautiful setting next to the Sava river, with magical arias, duets and choirs from famous operas performed by the National Theatre Opera Ensemble. The occasion for this spectacular event was the 100th anniversary of the opera ensemble and was organized within the KVART Belgrade Waterfront initiative.
The repertoire of the unique cultural event consisted of well-known arias as well as the popular bel canto. Visitors enjoyed the music from the play „Masquerade Ball“, arias from Puccini’s „Turandot“, „The Barber of Seville“, „Carmen“ and „Don Carlos“. The audience applauded the champions of the Opera, the Orchestra and the Choir, who were in charge of the glamorous atmosphere of this performance, under the batons of Djordje Pavlovic and Djordje Stankovic. Special guest from Germany, mezzosoprano Sanja Anastasia, performed and Ivana Dragutinovic Maricic was in charge of directing the whole spectacle.
Belgrade Waterfront organized this celebration with the National Theatre, continuing to support cultural and artistic events that promote the spirit of Belgrade as a cosmopolitan city with a rich artistic tradition.
