Bulgaria has a great cultural tradition that was fostered by years of Communist governments. Even though there is now very little money available for the arts, Bulgaria still boasts world-class opera singers and musicians who mostly reside abroad. You really should not miss the opportunity to catch one of their performances on their rare visits to their home country. Other forms of art, such as theatre, are less accessible for foreigners due to the language barrier.
In the past few years concert organisers have begun to attract big names to Sofia, such as Queen, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Depeche Mode and many others. Their concerts usually take place in football stadiums during the summer months. Tickets to pop and rock concerts in Sofia are expensive by local standards but still cheaper than they would be abroad.
Generally ticket prices to other events are still relatively inexpensive, Sofia is the place to give opera, ballet or classical music a try!
