Ohrid, 13 August 2017 (MIA) - Concert of Russian pianist Lilya Zilberstein and theatre play "Јami Distrikt - the oldest nation of the world" is on Sunday's programme of the Ohrid Summer festival.
Born in Moscow and educated at the Gnessin State Musical College, Lilya Zilberstein rose to prominence after winning the 1987 Concorso Busoni. This triumph opened up the Italian halls to her, and as soon as she graduated she embarked on a tour, debuting in the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. She finished with her German debut in Munich and she was immediately contracted by Deutsche Grammophon. She settled in Hamburg two years later, where she still lives with her husband and her two sons. She has since had a successful concert career and has been teaching at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena since 2011.
The concert programme includes pieces by Schubert and Liszt.
Theatre play "Јami Distrikt - the oldest nation of the world" by Milena Bogavac, directed by Kokan Mladenovic, is co-produced by the Tivat center for culture, Bitef theater-Belgrade, Тhink tank studio-Novi Sad and Festival Maszk-Szeged.
The play is a form of false documentary, based on an imaginary but possible event. The story occurs in a village at the junction of three borders - Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina - where scientists have discovered the oldest paleolithic settlement in the history of mankind. Since the three countries want to claim it as their own, series of absurd theories emerge.
The cast includes Isidora Simijonovic, Nina Neskovic, Jelena Graovac. ik/10:46
