At the traditional concert Opera Night, conducted by maestro Simon Krečič, we present a diverse and stylistically varied musical program, featuring excerpts from the greatest opera successes of the current season and past years. With this concert event, which is free, open to all, and typically attended by crowds not only in the city of Maribor but also in other Slovenian cities, we promote Slovenian opera creativity and contribute to the popularization of opera and related musical genres.
