The charismatic Argentine tenor José Cura arrived at the festival for the first time, uniquely interpreting the arias of Italian opera masters Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini. This year, the festival again included in the Revolving Auditorium program, which was performed by Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni, directed by Jiří Menzel. In the nineteenth year, the world-famous ensemble Kremerata Baltica performed with violinist Gidon Kremer. And there were also concerts of other genres. The Krumlov stage welcomed jazz trumpet player James Morrison for the second time, and despite the bad weather, a concert from the Night on the Broadway cycle was held by three singers directly from New York’s Broadway. Pavel Šporcl’s most sought-after project with the gypsy dulcimer band Gipsy Way Ensemble and Mexican Evening was a great success.
