As part of the Дoček 7527 project, the association of artists “Visoko C” performed the premiere of the opera for children “Bash Chelik”, on January 13, 2019, at the scene of Pera Dobrinović at the Serbian National Theater. Music composed by Aleksandar Bahun, and libretto and directing by Branislav Cvijić. The ensemble of the Association of artists “Visoko C” was joined by the well-known Novi Sad actress Jovana Balasevic at the premiere.
Opera for the children “Bash Chelik” is the first music work written on the topic of Serbian fairy tales. The youngest have the opportunity to step into the world of the imagination of Serbian heroes. It is the world of giants, dragons, the struggle of good and evil, presented in a comical, fun and educational way.
In eight pictures, kids have the opportunity to identify themselves with the main character, with a prince or with a princess, who with their love and devotion to true values will defeat Bash Chelik and giants and thus find happiness. The story of “Bash Chelik” is not simple, it requires the engagement of a large number of people, behind the scenes and on the scene. A large number of costumes, rotating scenography, demanding music and directing contribute to the positive situation of engaging a large number of people and creating something new and significant for our culture.
