Cornerstone of Skopje Theatre to be laid on Epiphany Day

Cornerstone of the Skopje Theatre, which is to be constructed upon the model of the old theatre that was destroyed by the 1963 earthquake, will be laid on Friday (Epiphany Day). Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski will mark the beginning of works, followed by addresses of Minister of Culture Ilirijan Bekiri and State Secretary Elizabeta Kancevska.

Jovan Stefanovski-Zan and team of authors from “Euro Arch Design” are the project’s creators. Construction activities will be divided in several stages: first the exterior, then the interior, followed by lighting-acoustic.

According to Government’s initial assessments, the theatre’s construction will cost about Euro 6 million, scheduled for completion in 2009.
