bulgare-24The world renown and highly acclaimed Bulgarian National Folklore Ensemble “Bulgare” comes to Boston for the first time in its US premier presentation of  “This Is Bulgaria”. Dubbed “the 8th wonder of the world” this show is known for its unique and innovative, yet truly authentic native folk dance choreography. This dance troupe of 50 highly trained professionals will take you on a cultural journey through the seven ethnologically distinct regions of Bulgaria while introducing you to the wonderful regional folk music and dance of each. Also featured in the performance will be world renown vocalist Albena Veskova, former soloist with “Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares”.

Founded in 2002 by Hristo Dimitrov, Bulgare was to be the catalyst of a renewed sense of spirit for the citizens of Bulgaria whose country had recently suffered great hardship. With the aid of his sister Elena and her husband Ian Charles Anderson, Dimitrov’s dream became a reality as this magnificent troupe of dancers brought about this much needed resurgence of a national pride in and appreciation of native folk music and dance. Currently the largest European ensemble of its kind, Bulgare continues to thrill and entertain countless audiences worldwide. 

Presented here is definitely a rare opportunity to experience folk dance at it best. Must see it to believe it!!!!!
