Bulgarian State Folklore Ensemble "Philip Kutev" will celebrate its 70th anniversary with three concert performances.
The 70-year history of the Philip Kutev Ensemble has given us numerous reasons for pride, and each of its new performances is a real celebration.
Founded in 1951, the Ensemble revives, preserves, creatively interprets and promotes Bulgarian folk culture with concerts in Europe, Asia, Africa and America. The most characteristic musical and dance realizations are the fruit of the great talent and deep knowledge of Bulgarian folklore by the unique artists Filip Kutev and Margarita Dikova, continued today by Elena Kuteva, Georgi Andreev, Ivaylo Ivanov.
In February 2022 we will have the privilege to touch the impressive voices, magnetic musicians and virtuoso dancers of DFA "Philip Kutev", who will celebrate their 70th anniversary with three bright concerts:
* On February 18 - "THE BEGINNING" - we will hear and see musical and dance works preserved from the birth of the ensemble until 1985, including the iconic production "Thracian Wedding".
* On February 19 - "THE WAY" - we will enjoy the stage achievements through the premiere of three new works of the ensemble, as well as the participation of guest performers.
* On February 20 - "HERITAGE" - we will touch on the transmitted and received folklore and stage heritage.
Special guest performers in the anniversary events will be the professional ensembles "Pirin" and "Trakia".
The solemn concerts on the occasion of the 70th anniversary are held under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria Mr. Rumen Radev and will mark the beginning of a national tour, which will take place in 2022.
