Performance of the J. K. Tyl Theatre Pilsen as part of the 14th Festival of Music Theater Opera 2020 (www.festival-opera.cz).
The Fireflies by Jan Karafiát from 1876 belong to the essential works of Czech literature for children. It was thus expected that a number of stage drama, opera, ballet and film productions would take place.
The J. K. Tyl Theatre Orchestra, Chorus and Ballet
Children's Choir, members of the Ballet school
Composer Jan Jirásek and his librettist Tomáš Jarkovský created a new production of this popular story for the Pilsen opera. The aim of the new opera is to create a family performance for both young and older audiences who will learn a lot from the story of small beetles and their world, which intertwines with the world of people. Besides the opera soloists, the production will also feature a large choir, a children's choir, a ballet and a children's ballet. Performed in Czech, with Czech and German subtitles
Approximate running time, including intermission: 2 hours
