About the festival: 

Archaion Kallos International Festival of Orthodox Music invites you to a beautiful spiritual and musical experience. In its literal sense, the Greek expression “archaion kallos” means “ancient beauty,” but in the vocabulary of the Holy Fathers of the Eastern Christian Church, “archaion kallos” speaks of a certain archetype, an “original beauty;” that is to say, the beauty which man beheld in Paradise and which he experienced after Creation. 

The association Philokallia (a word of Greek origin meaning “love of the beautiful”) gave this name to the first and only festival of Orthodox music in Prague because they perceive every act in sacred music, whether of composition or interpretation, as a kind of conscious or unconscious search for this pristine beauty, the Archaion Kallos.

The concert is being organized with the support of the Embassy of Cyprus in Prague and the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus.

Important: 

  • One 15 min. intermission
  • Dress code: casual
