The premiere of L'Olimpiade

Prague 2/5/2013

The endowment fund was a partner of the extraordinarily successful performance of L'Olimpiade, the opera by Josef Mysliveček, the Czech classicist musical composer, at the Estates Theatre, performed by the baroque ensemble Collegium 1704. With the participation of the Fund, the National Theatre presented the opera to great audience approval at the beginning of May and it received very positive reviews from the foreign critics during its European tour. Proof of the opera's success was its nomination for the prestigious International Opera Award. Collegium 1704 presented the opera in co-production stagings at the Caen Theatre, Dijon Opera House and the Grand Theatre of Luxembourg.
