State Opera Prague
Gala Concert to reopening of the State Opera Prague
The gala concert, bearing the secondary title “The State Opera: Transformations in Time (1888–2018)”, will guide the audience through the illustrious history of its four resident opera companies. The arias, ensembles and overtures selected to be performed at the gala concert symbolise the seminal moments of the State Opera building’s history – world and Czech premieres, exceptional productions, celebrated singers, conductors and stage directors, guest appearances of renowned foreign opera houses – as well as Czech history in general. Under the baton of Karl-Heinz Steffens, the Music Director of the State Opera, the concert will feature distinguished soloists and foreign guests of the National Theatre, and the State Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
