Orchestral concert in the Smetana Hall

A diverse cocktail of famous and popular compositions from the area of symphonic, opera, comic opera and concertante music will bring a pleasantly relaxed, almost New-Year’s-Eve-like mood.

The program comprising famous miniatures will add sentiment and mastery from two excellent soloists – a promising soprano of Slovak origin, Patricia Janečková, and Spanish flautist Claudi Arimany. Their partner will be the West Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Mariánské Lázně with the Swiss conductor Claude Villaret.
