Janáček Brno Festival opened with Katya Kabanová

A twenty-minute ovation showed that not only Brno but the whole Czech Republic experienced an absolutely extraordinary night

Last night at 7 pm the Janáček Brno Festival was opened by Janáček’s Katya Kabanová to continue for eleven days with opera performances, concerts, and a supporting program to turn the culture life of Brno upside down. The Janáček Theatre, sold out and with a number of eminent personages of Czech culture attending, gave an excited ovation for the excellent performances of singers and the whole production team present at the premiere. This ovation of almost twenty minutes confirmed that not only Brno but the whole of the Czech Republic experienced an absolutely extraordinary night. Katya Kabanová remains in the repertoire of the Janáček Theatre so those who did not get to the premiere may attend the performance in this season tomorrow October 9 or on October 28 and November 21 and 22. However, they should not hesitate for too long to buy the tickets as they are selling very fast.
