The idea of organizing an Easter Festival in Prague grew out of friendship. This is always the strongest building block. In this case, the new festival is based on our friendships with Germany and Portugal. Its patron is His Excellency Luís de Almeida Sampaio, the Portuguese ambassador to the Czech Republic, while the prominent German conductor and violinist Christoph Poppen, Music Director of the wonderful festival in Marvão, Portugal will take on the role of co-dramaturge.

The Königswinkel festival in Füssen, Germany, with its experienced Intendant Florian Zwipf-Zaharia, will also work together with the Prague festival. That is why the nascent project is composed of artists mainly from the aforementioned countries, our European neighbours. And that's what it's all about: getting to know our neighbours through music, and thus getting to know ourselves as much as possible!
