Duration of the programme 1 hod
For children and parents


Because of their tailcoats, orchestra musicians somewhat resemble penguins, especially when seen through the eyes of children. For the seventh time, the actor Pavel Liška will be examining the world of orchestral musicians and their music. And naturally, there will be a curious and enthusiastic audience of children. Together, they have already discovered what different kinds of music sound like, what a conductor is needed for, and why one does not talk at concerts. But they have also been able to experience what it is like to conduct an orchestra, to sing “Let’s Rejoice and Be Merry” from The Bartered Bride accompanied by an orchestra, to create the newest music together with the musicians of the Philharmonic, or to witness a performance by a blind pianist. We want to prepare experiences for children that will allow them to look for music not only on stage (or on their phones), but especially within themselves. You are invited to the premiere of an entertaining and educational programme by Alice Nellis for parents with children!
