Verdi Opera Festival to be Held in Tbilisi

Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theater is to host the Verdi Opera Festival in 2019.

The theater Director, Badri Maisuradze, signed the contract with the Verdi International Festival, which is held annually in Italy, Parma, and allows thousands of people to listen to opera performers from different countries of the world.

Georgia is officially authorized to conduct the Verdi Festival. Performances will be held not only in Tbilisi but also in different cities throughout the country.

In 2019, the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theater will also have a tour in Parma at the Verdi Festival, which is part of the agreement made by the sides.

Next year, Parma will be the European Cultural Center, which is implemented within the framework of the European Union program "Creative Europe."
