This unique event, opening the gates to the wonderland and opera world’s magic, which connects the noble art with strong human stories is a symbiosis of full-grown artistry of renowned Slovak opera soloists and fresh art of young talents – stars of tomorrow.

Participants of Opera Gala 2018
In fifth anniversary concert the renowned Slovak artists successfully established on international opera stages will be presented. Baritone Richard Šveda, born in Svidník (East Slovakia), is now a soloist of Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf. The voice of mezzosoprano Zuzana Šveda, born in Matejovce near Poprad (under the High Tatras), also sounds often on stages abroad. This year, the relay of young talents will be taken over by Slávka Zámečníková, born in Bánovce and Bebravou, a student of Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin, and a member of Berliner Staatsoper Unter den Linden Opera Studio led by world-known conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim. Slávka Zámečníková is a laureate of various international competitions and a winner of revived Mikuláš Schneider-Trnavský Singing Competition in Trnava (western Slovakia) in 2017. The essential ingredient of the concert’s opera and song menu will be the piano accompanying of Júlia Grejtáková, an accompanist in the Opera of the State Theatre in Košice as well as a chief accompanist and dramaturge of Opera Slovakia

Program of Concert
The repertoire of Gala Concert offers delicacies of world opera literature giants including Saint-Saëns, Wagner, Puccini, Mozart, Offenbach, Charpentier, Massenet, Bizet or Gounod. The songs of Slovak composers Bartolomej Urbanec, Mikuláš Schneider-Trnavský and Eugen Suchoň whose jubilees are commemorated this year will also be an integral part of the concert.

Benefit Character of the Concert
In concert, the tunes of the world opera maestros and the Slovak song creations will be interlaced with the profound message of humanity. This year, the yield from the concert will be dedicated to the balneal cure for the seriously handicapped Vierka (22) from village Tvarožná near Kežmarok by the producer Opera Slovakia, o. z. in the cooperation with the Foundation TA3 and its administrator Peter Káčer. Just during the first year of her life she was diagnosed for the Infantile Spinal Muscular Atrophy, type I (Werdnig–Hoffmann disease). As a consequence of a muscular atrophy, her vertebral column is warping, and she will never walk. The balneal cure helps her much, but the health insurance covered its costs only up to her full age of 18 – from this time she has to pay for it herself. Since the cure is cost-demanding – above 3.000 € – she cannot afford it. Therefore, one therapeutic cycle will be financially contributed by the opera artists who will perform without the fee requirements.
