No Borders Orchestra

We are delighted to announce that PUSKAS INTERNATIONAL artist management & consultancy has taken on the general management of the No Borders Orchestra.

The No Borders Orchestra (NBO) is a symphony orchestra comprised of excellent professional musicians from every country of the former Yugoslavia. Originally inspired by the West-Eastern Divan orchestra, the NBO grew out of the desire to create a regional cross-border symphony orchestra of the Western Balkans, one that delivers the highest artistic quality and calls for a new kind of communication in order to overcome nationalism, racism, xenophobia, homophobia and the bloody legacy of the past.

Since its formation in 2012 NBO has developed a successful track record. The NBO performed well-received concerts at the leading festivals in the Balkan region (Ljubljana Festival in Slovenia, Kotor Art in Montenegro, BEMUS in Belgrade, Pristina festival in Kosovo etc). The NBO made its first international appearance at Radialsystem in Berlin in October 2013 as well as touring throughout 2014/15 with a new production of the Verdi/Cassol opera “Macbeth” directed by renowned South African theatre director Brett Bailey. For this opera production NBO received favourable reviews at Wiener Festwochen in Vienna, Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels, Festival d`Automne in Paris, Operadagen in Rotterdam, Theaterformen in Braunschweig, at theBarbican in London, Lisbon, Strasbourg etc.

NBO’s debut album “The Opening” was released in May 2015 on UniversalMusic/Deutsche Grammophon.
