PRE-ORDER of the CD Germanico in Germania

Unbelievable, but true: Max' birthday and 35th stage anniversary, all at once!

It all began 35 years ago, in what is today called HNK, the opera of Zagreb. Max Emanuel Cencic sang the coloratura of Die Koenigin der Nacht, went on tour with Paris' Sorbonne at the tender age of 7, and started performing infants' roles at the opera of Zagreb on September 1982.

To celebrate Max' 35th stage anniversary as well as his birthday, the opera of Zagreb will organize a gala event on September 21st, 2017.
There, the artist will perform the title role of Orfeo in Christoph W. Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, under the baton of Maestro Niksa Bareza.
