Premiere 9th April 2020 at the Janáček theatre.
The Easter Greek Passion
The Greek Passion by Bohuslav Martinů returns to the stage of Janáček. Having himself experienced the fate of a refugee, B. Martinů created an opera based on the novel Christ Recrucified by N. Kazantzakis; it conveys a great humanistic message about the power of faith, which is ever more topical in today's world. The new production of The Greek Passion will bring two rare guests to the Brno Theatre - Tomáš Netopil, one of the best Czech contemporary conductors and Harold Meers, one of the leading American tenors in the role of Manolio. The performance is presented in one block in April, on the 9th, 13th, 18th, 19th, 23rd and 24th of April 2020.
