The Slovak National Theatre (SND) and Slovak Television (STV) are launching a project to help the people affected by the recent floods, Zuzana Golianová from the SND press department told the TASR newswire on June 7.
General directors Ondrej Šoth (SND) and Štefan Nižňanský (STV) have agreed to broadcast a performance of the opera Madame Butterfly at SND on Tuesday, June 8, evening on STV2.
The broadcast will be a fund-raiser that can be supported by those attending the opera performance and by the viewers at home who will be able to send money to the bank accounts shown on screen.
The bank accounts are managed by the People in Peril organisation, the Slovak Red Cross, the Slovak Catholic charity and the Charter 77 foundation.
