The Orchestra of State Opera of Plovdiv (Bulgaria)
“Swan Lake” is undoubtedly the greatest ballet of all times. It has endured for more than 130 years, largely due to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s score which is considered by many one of the greatest achievements in music history. He composed it between August of 1875, and March of 1876, and produced it for Moscow’s Bolshoi Theater with choreography by Julius Reisinger on February 20, 1877. Without actually setting out to ‘reform’ ballet music, Tchaikovsky seems to have gone about his task as primarily a musical conception, treating the medium of ballet as worthy of a stronger and more imaginative musical element. In this stage performance, the soloists and ballet ensemble of MOB are joined by the renowned Plovdiv Symphonic Orchestra. The Symphonic Orchestra of Plovdiv was established in 1945, but its roots lie on 100-year-old tradition for orchestra music in Plovdiv, a big cultural centre in Bulgaria and Europe.. The orchestra performs a wide repertoire of symphonic and opera music. A huge number of renowned musicians, conductors and soloists have performed with it over the years. The orchestra has gained its huge prestige with a lot of successful concerts, tours and guest-performances in Europe and the USA and a significant number of recordings.
