The 12th edition of the International Music Festival began with a magnificently unconventional audiovisual composition Dreams and Passions. The experience of the inspiring music of Berlioz’s Fantastic Symphony was perfectly complemented by theatrical elements, fireworks, and majestic shooting from works in the castle garden. Another exterior with a unique atmosphere, which the festival offered in 2003, was the second courtyard. The most famous compositions by Dvořák, Puccini, and Verdi, performed by the singers of the New York Metropolitan Opera,were heard. Eva Urbanová, Youngok Shin, and Janice Taylor, accompanied by the National Theater Orchestra in Prague, shone at the gala concert. A concert of another genre was not to be missed this year either. The evening, entitled Sounds of Folklore, performed by the band Hradišťan and Jiří Pavlica, offered an untraditional combination of the castle’s southern gardens and folk music.
