The Janáček Brno Festival – the only biennial which presents Leoš Janáček directly in the places where he worked, lived and created for more than fifty years.
The festival is based around opera performances by Czech and foreign opera companies, the juxtaposition of differently conceived stagings by major figures and the presentation of world premieres and previously unseen original versions of works by Leoš Janáček.
The festival features symphonic and chamber concerts, matinees, programmes for children, exhibitions, alternative concerts and theatre performances linked with the composer. Moreover, the festival takes place not only in theatres and concert houses, but also in Brno’s architectural landmarks such as Villa Tugendhat.
It has only taken six editions of the biennial Janáček Brno festival for it to work its way up to being the best festival in the world. Janáček Brno was the first festival in the Czech Republic to win the prestigious International Opera Awards prize for the best festival of 2018.
Theatre World Festival Brno is in a superb location, the second city of Czechia is within easy striking distance of Prague, Bratislava and Vienna. Another positive factor is the year-round cooperation of Brno’s theatres – The National Theatre Brno, Goose on a String Theatre, HaDivadlo, Brno City Theatre, Polárka Theatre, Studio Marta and Radost Theatre.
The Festival is a major international theatre festival, one of the three largest theatre festivals in the Czech Republic. The festival strives hard to attain the highest European standards and in doing so cultivates an audience that has the highest expectations from the art scene. The festival brings productions that audiences would otherwise have to travel outside the country to see. Each year the festival puts on more than fifty performances in the main programme.
The next edition of the festival will take place on May 13-27. 2023.
