After incredible 89 years, the National Theatre Opera and the State Opera is to stage Jaromír Weinberger´s fairy-tale opera Schwanda the Bagpiper with the subheading The Devil Lost, He Regrets. The work was on the programme of New York´s Metropolitan Opera or London’s Covent Garden in the 1930s and is currently staged at the National Theatre by director Vladimír Morávek and conductor Zbyněk Müller who have conceived the production as a family show. The project falls within the Musica non grata cycle that is carried out with the financial support of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in the Czech Republic.
