Kyrenia, North Cyprus which has
witnessed singing the old songs for
ages now hosts modern and classical concerts these days.
Numerous concerts have been performed in this 13th
Century Lusignan Monastery. Salamis, in
Famagusta is another such
historic site used for concerts. Both of these places will now host cultural
activities and music festivals during spring and summer periods.
On 24 - 25 August 1998 a "Chamber
Music Concert" took place in Bellapais. On 28th August the famous Othello
of Guiseppe Verdi was staged with accompaniment of Collegium Noricum
Nürenberg Orchestra, conducted by Kurt Karl.
If you remember that
Shakespeare's Othello of the 16th century is related to Famagusta, only a
few miles away you can appreciate the historic significance of the
Stages amongst Roman ruins, the two world famous artists
Shakepeare's and Verdi will be once more honoured.
This is not something
to be missed by any music lover.
