Novel in eight acts taking place at the time of 1980s' economic crisis and 1990s' civil war in ex-Yugoslavia, seen through two pairs of eyes and sung in duets.

Lyrical, evocative, and erotic, Yugoopera follows the parallel life stories of Nora and Nikola intertwined with their friends' paths and turbulent happenings in a country that is no more.

The extroverted pianist and the quiet artistic linguist live the full scope of sweet and sour experiences, accompanied by music, which lead them by accords and notes into a new country.

From trips all over Europe to mom's warm kitchen, from the war zone to watering geraniums on the terrace, from existential problems to candle-lit dinners, singing love in all its shapes and forms.
