The Bitola National Theater is one of the country’s leading institutions of culture playing a significant role in the cultural history of Macedonia, Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska said Monday at an event marking the 72nd anniversary of the institution.

The Bitola National Theater, she added, has managed to create a unique theater expression, rich and versatile theater program with irrefutable aesthetics.

“Over the years, Bitola has assumed the role of a global stage, a host of memorable theater events and a place where exceptional plays have been performed and where top artists have created major theater plays and won numerous awards and recognitions both nationally and internationally,” Kanceska-Milevska told a news conference.

According to her, 2016 for the Bitola National Theater was ‘one of the most successful years’ in its history.

“Partially supported by the Ministry of Culture in addition to its own funds, the Bitola Theater this year produced a record breaking number of premieres, nine in total, with two of them being staged in co-production with theater companies from Russia and the United States,” the Minister said.

To mark the anniversary, the ensemble of the Bitola Theater are scheduled to perform the play “Bitola Traveling Theater” before leaving for a mini-tour in US city of Santa Barbara.
