Performance characteristics.

Wonderful Dvořák is a charming musical and dramatic scenery from the environment of the historical salon of the Prague bohemian representatives from the last century with the most beautiful Dvořák’s arias and melodies interpreted by leading opera soloists as well as violin virtuosos. Rusalka, The Jacobin, Moravian Duets, Biblical Songs, Mazurek and many other unforgettable compositions take the spectator to the times where Dvořák, than at the zenith of his creativeness, stood in the front-rank of both Czech and American music cultural life. The impressiveness of the performance is emphasized not only by the immediate contact of the performers with the spectators and closeness to the exposed Dvořák’s relics like e.g. musical instruments, scores, letters, etc., but also by the splendid baroque interior and acoustics of Villa America. This time again the guests are invited to visit the Museum and to toast with a glass of Becherovka.

The performance is featured in English or in Czech, arias in the original. Multilingual programs are available, the program is about 80 minutes long without interlude.
