Programme was compiled by Karl-Heinz Steffens, the music director of the State Opera and aims to show the diversity of the works and lives of the composers featured within the Musica non grata project.
From the Scherzo triste by Pavel Haas, who was murdered in Auschwitz; through Jaromír Weinberger’s operetta Frühlingsstürme (Spring Storms), whose premiere in Berlin in 1933 starred the celebrated Czech soprano Jarmila Novotná; to the Brno-born composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s music for the Hollywood blockbuster The Sea Hawk. Composing film music earned Korngold double Film Academy Award (Oscar) for "Anthony Adverse" (1936) and "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938).

Check the agenda of Prague opera and ballet performances at the National Theatre.
Visit the recently re-opened and newly refurbished grand opera house with a noteworthy history where many world renown artists have worked here making each performance a prime cultural event.
This Neo-classical edifice was built in 1883 by the German Theatre Association as a reaction of German minority in Prague to the opening of the Prague National Theatre.
As the New German Theatre it soon gained international acclaim for its inovative repertoire and artistic leadership including such names as Angelo Neumann, Alexander Zemlinski or Georg Szell.
Nowadays, famous operas, as well as pieces unjustly overlooked or unknown in the Czech Republic are introduced in the State Opera gaining the theatre a reputation of one of the best European scenes where you can enjoy watching mainly opera and ballet performances.
