To take place the 17th International Festival of Operatic Singers “Marie Kraja”
The 17th International Festival of Operatic Singers “Marie Kraja” will take place this month. The Festival will take place in Tirana on 18, 19, and 20 April 2019. The Festival is open to participants from all countries between 20 to 34 years old.
Many of the the well-known voices of the Albanian stage have emerged not only from the Faculty of Music of the highest education institution in the country (the Academy of Arts – now the University of Arts) but also from the music competitions. Some of them have already traveled to other scenes, but in the biography there is also an important part of the Opera Festival which is named after the renowned artist Marije Kraja. Sopranos Evis Mula and Enkeleda Kamani, Renisa Laçka or Kosovo singer of international lyric scenes Marigona Qerkezi, and further tenors Klodian Kaçani and Ramë Lahaj etc. are just some of the participants who have touched the podium of the International Operational Festival “Marie Kraja” in years. They have competed with other opera singers who have traveled to Albania to participate in this activity from different countries of the world.
