Media Announcement

The American HIP-HOP and R&B performer Ryan Leslie chose Sofia Opera and Ballet House as the venue for the last film shots of his newest movie - "From Sofia With Love".

Leslie, also known among his fans around the world as The Black Mozart, comes back to Bulgaria for his concert on 14th February named "From Sofia With Love", too. St. Valentine's Day inspired the star to make a gift to his fans: to include them in the shooting of the movie.

Every fan who bought a ticket for the concert will take part in the movie as a real actor. The Opera House will open its doors at 18.00h on St. Valentine's Day, at the same time as the cameras will start rolling and the admirers of the artist will have the pleasure to enjoy one very intimate chamber music concert. At the moment the other performers, who will stand next to Leslie, are kept a secret, but probably they would be one of the big surprises of the night. Right after the cameras will stop shooting, Leslie will perform together with his band some of his biggest hits, taking in consideration, of course, the desires of the audience.

By making the concert "From Sofia With Love", the international star is keeping his promise to become an Ambassador of Sofia for European Capital of Culture. In November last year, the Harvard-graduate-singer, gave his support to the Bulgarian Capital for its European contest. It was then that he promised "My love story with Sofia has just begun.", and this is why he is coming back on 14th February. Willing to popularize Bulgaria around the worl, he turned it into inspiration for his newest movie.

The project "From Sofia With Love" is executed successfully thanks to Symphonics Entertainment Group, who brought last year the latino diva J Lo to Bulgaria, and this year will organize events with Andre Bocelli and "Lord of the Dance" , who will perform their last show. "A concert for R&B and HIP HOP artist in the Opera house is already a challenge, but when you add to it a filmmaking- it becomes a true adventure ! We believe that the chance we give to the fans to become part of the movie is truly amazing and should not be missed because it will leave memories that would last forever", said the organizers.

Only those fans who buy a ticket for the concert of Ryan Leslie on 14th February, will not only have the opportunity to enjoy his incredible music, but also to witness the birth of a new movie and even become part of it. At 18.00h on St. Valentine's Day, on the stage of Sofia Opera and Ballet House everyone will become an actor in the Black Mozart's great love movie.
