Opera of the Peaks – The Belogradchik Rocks is an innovative idea by director Plamen Kartalof whose unusual theatrical visions and design of the original director’s interpretation are associated with their conception among the magical beauty of the Rocks. They give the audience the opportunity to experience their favorite works in a new way. Many guests come to enjoy opera and ballet art in the open air.
The performances are held in the first courtyard of the fortress from 20:00.
