One big party at the State Opera! Musica non grata introduces Ball im Savoy
A light-hearted muse will take the reins at the State Opera. After eighty-nine years, Ball im Savoy, an operetta revue by the Hungarian composer Paul Abraham, premieres on 16th and 18th September directed by Martin Čičvák and conducted by Jan Kučera. Paul Abraham was the uncrowned “king of jazz opera”, whose stellar career was ended by the rise of Nazism in 1933. The production is a part of Musica non grata, an international music and cultural project of the Czech Republic and Germany, initiated and organized by the National Theatre in Prague and financially supported by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany.
