      Dolora Zajick: Bulgaria has great voices

      You have had such great artists as Ghena Dimitrova, with whom I have worked together, same for Raina Kabaivanska. But my impression is that there is something like a break assessing the Bulgarian vocal school. Every talent must be brought to light and developed. Money is needed to develop the so many talented singers that you have, people need to do their job well, Metropolitan Opera star, mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick says in an interview to Europost.

      Attractive and ordinary

      According to Roman author Pliny the Elder, who lived in the 1st century AD, the earliest painting known to mankind was done by a woman. Her name was Dibutades and she traced the lines of her sailor lover's shadow as thrown on the wall of her home. The female presence, this elusive and boundless energy occupying a distinct space in art, is now showcased in a way that is different from the Dibutades story, thanks to The Woman in the Oeuvre of European Graphic Artists of the 19th and 20th Centuries - an exhibition at the National Art Gallery “Square 500” in Sofia.
