Concert Nation to Itself – Culture to Yourself, taking place this Saturday, February 27th in the historical building of the National Theatre, will offer extraordinary connections and artistic overlaps.
More than 200 performers have decided to join their forces and they will appear in forty diverse groupings on six improvised stages in the historical building of the National Theatre. They are going to prove they want to create and above all amuse their audience even in these difficult times.
The Czech National Ballet will take part in the programme in two links. First soloist of The Czech National Ballet Nikola Márová and frontman of the band MIG 21 Jiří Macháček found a common platform and so you can look forward to a unique rendering of the song Snadné je žít (It's Easy to Live), accompanied by the National Theatre Orchestra led by Jaroslav Kyzlink.
Irritant but enriching interrelations were created by artists from seemingly opposite worlds. The band PSH led by Vladimir 518 together with The Czech National Ballet soloists Sophie Benoit and John Q. Powers. Two aesthetics but common message – inspired by destiny, symbolic clash of good and bad in the ballet Sleeping Beauty.
Ondřej Cihlář and Petr Prokop from the theatre VOSTO5 will present the evening. Not only the main stage but also the foyer, balcony and makeup room will turn into a concert stage.
Live broadcast on Saturday, February 27th at 20.10 (8:10 pm) on CT Art. The opening of the concert will be shown live on CT 1 as well.
