Il Boemo & Wranitzky
Czech Masters of the 18th century, world-class music and ballet
The combination of opera and ballet will bring together two Czech composers who became famous in Europe in the 18th century. Although their names are not so well known to the wider public today, they are undoubtedly among the great Czech masters, and this concert will be proof of that. A historically informed performance of their works will be given by the Wranitzky Kapelle and a conductor Marek Štilec, and Simona Šaturová will lend her voice to charming arias by Josef Mysliveček.
