International Festival "Varna Summer"

The International Theatre festival "Varna Summer" is held every year from 1 to 11 June and is part of the big Festival of the Arts held in the town of Varna, which includes also ballet, folk, choir, jazz, film and puppet festivals and an international graphic biennial The festivals held in 1993, 1994 and 1995 were of a national scope - their program consisted of the best Bulgarian theatre productions for the respective season. From 1996 on the festival practically became an international forum through the participation of prestigious foreign theatre groups, selectionists, directors of European festivals and theatre critics. What is more - the parallel program of the festival is gaining greater importance and thus the festival turns into a concentrated time and space, in which a series of smaller projects are being realized - workshops, scenographic exhibitions, seminars, discussions, critical debates, etc.

The International Summer Academy has been held annually within Varna Summer International Music Festival since 1984 and it was initiated by Prof. Mintcho Mintchev. These were the first master classes held in Bulgaria.

The Academy is a specific artistic laboratory improving the skills of young talents through the process of communications with renowned musicians and pedagogues. Combining the master classes with concerts of tutors and participants enhances the professional skills of the young musicians and creates atmosphere for the successful beginning of their career. Many of the former students at present take part in different prestigious festivals.

The Academy has won recognition due to the names of Prefessors Yfrah Neaman, Rosa Fain, Vera Gornostaeva, Germaine Mounier, Boris Bloch, Janos Starker, Robert Cohen, Karl Osterreicher, Andras Adorjan, Vaclav Junek, Eduard Tarr, Siegfried Fink, Thomas Martin, Herman Baumann, Margarita Lilova, Lazar Berman, Catherine Vickers... .

The festival is a member of the European Festivals Association.
