Branislav Cvijić, a member of the Serbian National Theatre Opera and, of course, of the Association “High C”, says that opera “Little Red Riding Hood” for the occasion, New Year’s performance in the Danube Park, is complemented with Santa Claus.
– The show is full of singing, music, dancing, jokes, and beautiful costumes. It will be a real classic opera performance, but again something completely new adjusted for children 3 to 11 years old. I believe that our youngest citizens will have a good time, and that this will help them a lot in creating quality musical tastes – said Cvijić.
The association “High C” has four projects of opera performances for children, and the “Little Red Riding Hood”, performed more than 300 times, is one of them. As Cvijić pointed out, the children’s opera performances have been accepted beyond all expectations, which confirms that children are eager of quality performances, whether it comes to theater or opera performances.
