Lyrical Minutes in the City came about in the production of Bunker under the auspices of the Mladi levi festival 2011. The events were directed by the renowned Belgian artist Dirk Opstaele, who has been working with his Brussels-based artistic group Leporello for several years now. Singers/actors performing were all nationally as well as globally renowned opera artists. The synergy formed between the director, his sensitivity for opera music and outstanding performers thus assures the success of every »lyrical surprise in the city«.

Due to a great interest following the premiere in Ljubljana in August 2011, the lyrical surprises took place throughout the summer of 2012. The overall enthusiasm brought about by the Lyrical minutes in the city has triggered its guest appearances abroad.
