Peter Dvorský – the Birthday Gala Concert as congratulation to Maestro

The local and guest soloists, the orchestra and opera choir of the State Theatre Košice under a baton of chief conductor Peter Valentovič will congratulate Maestro Peter Dvorský on his birthday in the historic building of State Theatre Košice, on Saturday 24th September. The Gala Concert will be performed on the eve of his 71st birthday.

„ On 25th September, our most important tenor Peter Dvorský, whose voice was heard on the biggest and most famous stages all over the world, will celebrate his birthday. The life path of Peter Dvorský is closely connected with the Opera of State Theatre Košice, where he also functioned as its director and left significant mark on it. The festive gala concert will be gratulations of the ensemble soloists and guests of Peter Dvorský, the orchestra and opera choir of State Theatre Košice, but also a tribute to the great master and a reminder of the biggest milestones of his singing career,“ says Roland Khern Tóth, the director of opera, about the gala concert, which was prevented  by the pandemic in a year of Maestro´s jubilee.

„ I have sung in front of the sold out auditoriums all over the world – that´s why I wish the concert would take place in front of a full theatre hall in the beautiful historic building of State Theatre Košice. I am very much looking forward to celebrate with my family and friends in Košice,“ said Peter Dvorský a year ago regarding postponement of his jubilee celebrations.

The Gala Concert will feature selected arias from the operas, that he premiered at the State Theatre Košice as artistic director of the opera.

Many local and guest soloists will congratulate Peter Dvorský in Košice - Božena Ferancová, Slávka Zámečníková, Andrea Danková, Eliška Weissová, Linda Ballová, Aneta Hollá, Michaela Várady, Myroslava Havryliuk, Tatiana Paľovčíková Paládiová, Janette Zsigová, Peter Berger, Peter Kellner, Maksym Kutsenko, Marek Gurbaľ, Jaroslav Dvorský, Titusz Tóbisz and Marián Lukáč.
