25th December: The celebration of 10 years from the foundation. When in the year 1997 a group of enthusiasts, headed by Madlena Zepter, started with the foundation of the Chamber Opera Madlenianum, the impossible was the only realistic thing they could ask for. In that gloomy and sad year to contemplate an Opera in Belgrade was an utterly impossible idea. However, the founders succeeded and Belgrade was the first city in the Balkans to get a private Opera. Belgrade has got it, primarily, because its people deserve it; because this city must not become only a memory of a metropolis.
Ten years later, Madlenianum completed its development and the establishment of its repertoire policy. Now, Madlenianum is an opera, but also a theatre and a musical. As a place adjusted to the spirit of time, Madlenianum becomes a gathering venue of artistic spirits – a genuine Metropolis of spirit. At the celebration of 10th anniversary the persons who have mostly contributed to the development of Madlenianum received jubilee awards.
