“Maria Desislava” – a historical opera by Parashkev Hadzhiev



“Maria Desislava” – a historical opera by Parashkev Hadzhiev presented by State Opera – Ruse


On the 4th of August 2017 (Friday), State Opera Ruse is going to present the historical opera “Maria Desislava” by Parashkev Hadzhiev

The act is set throughout the last decades of the XIV century in Tarnovgrad, right at the border of the kingdoms Tarnovo and Vidin and the castle of Murad I.

“Maria Desislava” is a work of art impregnated with a deep sense of patriotism. The act itself consists of two main ideas. These are the defence of the Bulgarian country from the Ottoman Invasion and the protection of the Christian values. The Bulgarian country is the first one to be oppressed by the Ottoman Empire and at the same time is the last one to be freed. The opera itself represents the patriotism of the Bulgarian nation.
