In summer 2018 musicians, singers and artists from different regions of Ukraine, Belarus and Germany will come to the Luhansk region in Eastern Ukraine to form a creative team together with local colleagues and friends. Close to the war region the international project is meant to be a sign of hope for peace and more understanding in the world.
Mozart's beloved opera has lost none of its relevance since its premiere in Prague in 1787. The clash of society and its mores with personal liberty and eros are themes that persist in our world, as we navigate the relationships between the individual and the whole, and confront the question: "How can we find the right way to build a life".
Severodonetsk was controlled by the "Luhansk People´s Republic" for three months in 2014. After Ukrainian authorities regained power, the city became a safe place for thousands of displaced persons. Civil and public organizations are working hard to rebuild social and cultural life, meanwhile the war continues in the eastern part of the Luhansk region.
