THE BEER ORATORIO 30. 1. 2020 - 19:30 Municipal House, Smetana Hall

In collaboration with the conductor and composer Jan Kučera, we tend to reach the most colorful musical corners. Be it jazz, St. Wenceslas or the traditional joint film-classical music opening at the Wallenstein Garden. This time another key Czech phenomenon comes to play – beer. However, it will not be treated in a prosaic way. Jan Kučera composed a spectacular oratorio telling the story of beer through texts by Jan Hus and Bohumil Hrabal, interpreted this time by Jiří Lábus, Barbora Řeřichová, Boris Prýgl, the Prague Philharmonic Choir and the Kühn Mixed Choir. Another excellent Czech composer Otmar Mácha was inspired by the delicious tipple and by the waiter to Charles the Great, the renowned Gambrinus. The ballet music Bacchus and Ariadne by Albert Roussel may be a winey, equally unbridled, counterbalance.
