Children in the orchestra - "We are musicians" performs on stage

This summer, "We are musicians" reached the stage and gave young children the opportunity to perform on the stage of Stara Zagora State Opera. “We are musicians” is a project of sensory friendly interactive opera developed by Stara Zagora State Opera dedicated to children and youth with special educational needs.

This year, the group of children was led by soprano singer and Orf therapist Rusalina Mochukova. She performed on stage with the children who were accompanied by the professional orchestra of Stara Zagora State Opera for a unique performance.

"We are musicians" also enabled two young people with Down syndrome to be cast as part of the troupe for the summer performances of Paquita, a ballet in two acts by Edouard Deldevez, but also of the musical Esmeralda - Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo and Riccardo Cocciante for the music.
