Festival Description

Every spring during the second half of March, the town of Rousse welcomes elitist Bulgarian and foreign musicians to the March Music Days International Festival—one of the oldest international music forums in Bulgaria. Over the past 41 years, since its foundation in 1961, the festival has given Rousse the reputation of a major cultural and music centre on the Danube. Perhaps one of the most impressive happenings in the early history of the festival is the guest visit of Dmitri Schostakovich and the first public performance of his "Katerina Izmailova.”

Festival Dates March 16 - April 2, 2011
