National Theatre and the Czech Philharmonic in one package
For the sixth time, the Czech Philharmonic will attune with the National Theatre in a joint subscription series. The first Czech orchestra offers music by Shostakovich, Mahler and Beethoven. The National Theatre will see the return of Janáček’s Káťa Kabanová and a new production of Wagner’s The Mastersingers of Nuremberg.
The first Czech orchestra will open its 125th season with music by Dmitri Shostakovich and Gustav Mahler. While Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto for piano, trumpet and string orchestra will showcase Selina Ott and Daniil Trifonov, two phenomenal soloists of the youngest generation, in Mahler’s Fifth, the orchestra will resound in perfect symbiosis with its Chief Conductor Semyon Bychkov. In its inaugural season after the extensive reconstruction, the State Opera will present a new production of Wagner’s The Mastersingers of Nuremberg directed by Keith Warner. The National Theatre will see the return of Janáček’s Káťa Kabanová after eight years, again directed by a star of today’s opera world, Spanish Calixto Bieito. The closing concert will be a tribute to this year’s Ludwig van Beethoven anniversary. Respected Czech pianist Ivan Klánský will play a series of Beethoven’s variations and sonatas, including the famous Appassionata.
Tickets will go on sale on 15th June 2020 on www.ceskafilharmonie.cz and www.narodni-divadlo.cz.
