National Theatre Orchestra

Czech National Chorus

A semi-staged performance of an opera written by Alois Hába between 1934 and 1936 for the National Theatre yet never performed. Owing to its depicting the violent collectivisation in a Soviet village, based on the Russian writer Fyodor Gladkov’s novel, the Czechoslovak Ministry of Education officially banned the opera for political reasons.

The performance is without an interval.
