The ‘Visoko C’ Association will be in charge of this year’s fairy tale and magic within Doček. Their ‘Snow White’ children opera will be a real treat for all children.
Children will have an opportunity to enjoy the performance online on the visitns.rs platform, on 13 January, as well as on the Novosadska TV channel at 3:30 p.m.
‘Snow White’ is one of the first operas composed for children which brings thirty minutes of beautiful music by composer Petar Kočić. The artists of the ‘Visoko C’ association performed the ‘Snow White’ for the first time in Novi Sad in 2016, and now, after four years, children will have a chance to see the première of the new ‘Snow White’ with new decoration, costumes and protagonists.
The picturesque and playful scenes from a famous story present Snow White from the moment she had been left in the woods, where she founded a cottage that belongs to dwarfs, which led to the happy ending when the prince came and save Snow White. The ‘Snow White’ children opera consists of well-turned phrases and singing melodies and it bears a remarkable resemblance to the segment of some Puccini’s or Verdi’s opera.
Citizens of Novi Sad celebrate Doček for the fourth time, within the concept of two calendars, two ways of measuring time, on 31 December and 13 January. This year, the European Capital of Culture opted for an alternate – online form of a programme. Therefore, in addition to the ‘Visoko C’ Association and ‘Snow White’ Children Opera, the famous violinist Stefan Milenković, Vasil Hadžimanov, Camerata Academica, Električni Orgazam, Buč Kesidi, band Džezva & Džezvica, a young violinist Lana Zorjan, Chamber Ensemble, the sopran Vitkay-Kucsera Ágota with the pianist Jelena Simonović Kovačević, will perform on 13 January.
