      Soprano Anna Tomowa-Sintow: Don't hurry to gain stardom

      Bulgaria has a future, I firmly believe that, says Bulgarian opera singer Anna Tomowa-Sintow, who visited the country at the invitation of maestro Plamen Kartaloff, director of Sofia Opera and Ballet, to help the vocal and interpretation training of the cast of a production of Mozart's opera Don Juan. Many years ago, she promised maestro Herbert von Karajan, with whom she worked for nearly 20 years, she would pass on her experience to the young generation. Since then, she has been giving masterclasses in Bulgaria and other countries. The Sofia Opera opened a photo exhibition this spring dedicated to Tomowa-Sintow and entitled 55 Years on Stage.
