On 19th January 2013, the first performance of this season - celebrating 60 years since the foundation of the Brașov National Opera - was that of the opera "La Traviata" by Giuseppe Verdi. The Artistic Director of the Brașov' Opera, Oviviu Mezei, talked to Petra Gherasim about this year's projects regarding the celebration of the Institution:

"During this season we will be organizing various events. First of all, I would mention the two premieres of the Brașov Opera, more exactly the opera "Tosca" by Puccini at the end of June, and altogether, in November the premiere of the opera "The Troubadour" by Verdi within the celebration of the VerdiYear. Furthermore, within the XVth edition of the International Opera, Operetta and Ballet Festival, we have scheduled an anniversary gala where we plan to invite various artists and musicians who have made their opera debut during this year or who have collaborated with us along the years, these of course, together with the already known artists of the Brașov Opera. Moreover, there is"Il Trittico" by Puccini, a project which had its debut in September 2012 and the premiere of the 1st part, Suor Angelica; then coming up next March, Gianni Schicchi and we end up in September with Il Tabarro, the third and last part of it. In addition, we have prepared a ballet premiere and a children's performance.
