The opening night of the new rock opera "Got to be Free," which is based on the events of Ukraine's EuroMaidan Revolution of 2013-2014, was held on May 26 in Kyiv.
The rock opera tells the story of two EuroMaidan activists who fall in love on the barricades while resisting the forces of ousted former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
The heroine of the rock opera, Melanka, is captured by “titushki” government-hired thugs, and her lover sets out to save her.
The rock opera was performed at the Sentrum music hall in Kyiv. Former Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko was one of those in attendance for the opening night of the work.
