Dear Participants and Guests,
I welcome you to the 19th Edition of the International Theatre Festival for Children “The Magic Curtain”.
I feel confident to declare that this Festival belongs to the significant factors in the cultural life of our city, an event that adds to the spirituality, to the development of theatrical forms, as it also gives prestige to our city.
Imagination is one of the many qualities, in which the children excel us, the adults. To create art for children, while provoking their imaginative mind, undoubtedly is a difficult and responsible task.
That is why I thank you for your dedication – for your concern about the spiritual growth of our minor co-citizens, for your efforts to cultivate their sense of beauty, while keeping up their curiosity.
Thank you for reminding us, the adults, of the fact that the magic and the mysteries of the imagination belong together in a world, which every one of us keeps to oneself, no matter how many years pass.
I wish to all participants and guests of “The Magic Curtain” inspiration and unforgettable moments with the Magic called “Theatre”.
I am confident that during the Festival Week our city will become the most beautiful and interesting place, that gathers together the cream of the art of children’s theatre from Bulgaria and abroad.
Welcome to you all!
Mayor of Targovishte Municipality
