Unique Czech opera inspired by author´s conversations with his friends on tram 

The Czech opera Tramvestie is a setting of Pavel Novotný’s collection of poems of the same name, which resulted from transcriptions of the author’s conversations with his friends on tram No. 11 on the route between the towns of Liberec and Jablonec nad Nisou.

The conversations correlate to the tramline’s district, the personal histories of their participants, as well as the region’s turbulent past. In addition to the texts from the book Tramvestie, the remarkable musical work was also inspired by the recordings of the interviewers’ voices, as well as the sound of the moving tram.

Performed by: 

State Opera Orchestra
