Opera Concert Velvet Legacy
SND Opera concert marking the 30th anniversary of Velvet Revolution
November events from three decades ago were born within the student context. Soon, Slovak dissidents and theatre-makers joined the youth. Hence, it is only natural that we wish to commemorate the anniversary at the theatre. On Tuesday 19 November, we present a concert Velvet Legacy featuring scenes from the works by Slovak and international authors that celebrate or appeal for freedom. The programme further includes poetry by Slovak authors, along with audio and video footage from the 1989 momentous days of 1989. The event is hosted by member of SND Drama Company, the actor Štefan Bučko.
The concert is brought to you in collaboration between the SND Opera and the Nation’s Memory Institute.
