"Dvořák for the National Theatre - National Theatre for Dvořák" - this will be the motto of this year's season opening concert. The destinies of Antonín Dvořák and the National Theatre (or the Royal Land Czech Theatre in Prague, as it used to be known then) were intertwined from the start. He started here as a viola player and became its prominent opera composer in the following decades. All his operas premiered here. We will celebrate the 180th anniversary of Antonín Dvořák's birth with highlights from his beloved operas including Dimitrij, Jacobin, Rusalka and Armida. After the intermission, the third part of Dvořák's oratorio Saint Ludmila will remind us of the 1100th anniversary of death of the Czech princess and saint, to whom this Dvořák's masterpiece is dedicated.
