Over the years the Sofia Opera and Ballet constantly invents new presentation forms for the opera and ballet art before the broad audience. Thus the Opera in the Park festival was born, inspired by an idea of Sofia Opera and Ballet’s Director, Acad. Plamen Kartaloff.

Host of this opera and ballet art fest is the park of G.S.Rakovski National Military Academy, thus allowing opera to penetrate new spaces and conquer the hearts of the audience. The unconventional urban environment opens doors before fans of the great classical opera and ballet performances under the patronage of Sofia city Mayor, Mrs. Yordanka Fandakova, thanks to the Ministry of Defense and with the support of UBB.

Over the elapsed years UBB has not only backed the next editions of the Opera-in-the-Park initiative, but also the first guest performance of Sofia Opera and Ballet at the Philippi Thassos Festival in Greece, while in 2014 the Bank also upheld the Opera under the Stars project with Modest Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov opera performance, thus paying tribute to the two great operatic basses Boris Christoff and Nicolai Ghiaurov and also marked the 90th anniversary from the consecration ceremony of St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.

In Y2015 we supported Sofia Opera and Ballet in its strive to revive the historical masterpiece “Borislav” and stage again the classic opera performance “Boris Godunov” during Stage of the Ages - the Summer Opera Festival, held in Veliko Tarnovo town in celebration of the 830th anniversary of the Uprising of Asen and Petar.
