The project entitled “In memoriam Jovanka Trbojevic – Absurdium, stand-up comic opera for shopping mall” is one in a series of projects to promote Serbian contemporary music, produced and performed by Music Opera and Theater Organization`s members.
This was the second premiere performance of Opera Absurdium, based on authors` personal bitter-sweet memories, after the one that took place in Finland in 2015th. Performance was given at cultural center of the Stari grad municipality PAROBROD on December the 6th, 2019. This performance is extremely attractive and receptive to the audience even though it has modern musical language. The event was attended by notable guests such as His Excellency the Egyptian Ambassador, Mr. Amir Alguveli, Serbian composers Mrs. Svetlana Savic and Mrs. Ivana Stefanovic, sound engineer and producer Mr. Zoran Jerkovic and others.
Gorana Curgus, a member of the MOTO Board, welcomed the guests on behalf of the organization, while Mrs. Svetlana Savic, composer and Jovanka Trbojevic`s friend, gave a brief account of Jovanka`s life and work in a touching manner.
