Eva Noer Kondrup: The Traveller

In September 2015 a large number of refugees crossed the Danish border and walked North on the freeway towards Sweden. This event resulted in a heated media debate and political actions, which - among other things - the control at the Danish border.

In The Traveller, composer and librettist Eva Noer Kondrup has focused on refugees. The opera was created from memories recorded by refugee children from the former Yugoslavia, a pivotal quote from political current affairs on refugees, and a classic frame story as seen in the Odin Teatret's production of Bertolt Brecht's Mutter Courage and Her Children.

The music of the piece finds inspiration in folk music traditions of the Middle East and the Balkans as well as in Klezmer music with accordion, double bass and percussion, combining an easily recognizable sound with surprising elements and classic composition techniques.

The award winning lighting designer Jesper Kongshaug will create the set design, and Ida Fogh Kiberg will be making her debut as stage director.

Rossini: The Barber of Seville

The Golden Age of the silent movie in the 1910s and 1920s is the main source of inspiration for prizewinning theatre director Martin Lyngbo's debut as opera director.

True to the feel of the silent movies, this production promises speed and chaos as the young count tries to capture the heart of his beloved Rosina and spirit her away from her over-ambitious guardian, Don Bartolo.

In Martin Lyngbo's interpretation, Il barbiere di Siviglia becomes a tale of empathy and humanity in an age of tyranny, where everyone has their own agenda. There will be chaos and love, vengeance and celebration, pride and shame, feast and failure accompanied by laughter, smiles, anger and irritation.

Rachmaninov Klavírní Koncert č.3, Dvořák Symfonie č. 9

Soloist: Stanislav Khristenko (USA) - piano

conductors: Kirk Smith (USA), Sergey Bezrodny (Russia)

Sergey Rachmaninoff - Piano concerto No. 3, Antonin Dvorak - Symphony No. 9

This musical show of two famous music masterpieces is connected to the "New World" - S. Rachmaninoff's 3rd Piano Concerto and A. Dvorak's 9th Symphony. The premieres of these both works were carried out in New York, at the end of 19th and beginning of 20th.
The Steinway Artist Stanislav Khristenko will present you an interpretation of the Rachmaninoff's 3rd piano concerto, and he has indeed developed this piece to the extraordinary emotional experience and to the absolute technical perfection!

Praised in the media around the globe including New York Times and Washington Post, Mr. Khristenko has won top prizes at over 30 prestigious international piano competitions including Cleveland International Piano Competition and Queen Elisabeth Music Competition.
As a piano soloist Stanislav Khristenko has performed with over 40 orchestras on four continents.

The Pilsen Philharmonic will share the stage of the Dvorak Hall with the famous pianist.
Peculiarly enough, besides generally acknowledged musical merits in Dvorak's 9th Symphony, we find also one unsolved mystery, over which quarrel many musical critics: was Dvorak inspired in his 9th Symphony by African American spirituals or by the songs of American Indians? On this question, sometimes overgrowing in conspiracy theories, one can answer independently - by listening to 9th Symphony performed by the Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra. The key for it will provide you an American conductor Kirk Smith, who is known for his beautiful interpretations of Dvorak music in the USA.

The Pilsen Philharmonic, formerly named Pilsen Radio Orchestra, is an ensemble with a strong tradition and reputation and is an orchestra that is sought-after not only in the Czech Republic, but also worldwide.

The orchestra is having many international tours and performs on prestigious stages in Europe and USA, such as Gasteig in Munich, Liederhalle in Stuttgart, Alte Oper in Frankfurt, Brucknerhaus in Linz, Stadthalle in Vienna, Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, Tonhalle in Zürich and Rudolfinum and O2 arena in Prague. In August 2017, the orchestra performed in Elbphilharmonie, the new concert hall in Hamburg.

The Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra is also a holder of the Art Award of the City of Pilsen for the years 2014 and 2015 in the category Unique Cultural Event of the Year, precisely for the concert Year of Czech music 2014 that was held in the Pilsen Cathedral of St. Bartholomew. During the concert the orchestra performed the Requiem by Antonín Dvořák. The second mentioned award was for the project The Artists and the Age of Totality. In 2015, the orchestra became the flagship of the project Pilsen - The European Capital of Culture 2015.

In the past season the Pilsen Philharmonic performed along with Tai Murray, Pascal Rogé, Lilya Zilberstein, Juliane Banse, Sergei Nakariakov, Anne Queffélec, Jeremy Menuhin or Gautier Capucon; as well as Ramon Vargas and Montserarrat Caballé and a number of excellent conductors such as Charles Mackerras, Václav Talich, Jiří Bělohlávek or Libor Pešek.

The name Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra was used for the first time in 1934, but the history of this orchestra reaches back to 1882, to the activities of The Pilsen Philharmonic Society. The major change happened in 1919 when the Orchestra of the Enlightenment Union was established in Pilsen and in 1934 took upon the name The Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra. The new stage in life of this orchestra began in 1946 when the construction of a new building for Czech Radio Pilsen started. This building offered its space to the orchestra and the ensemble adopted the name Pilsen Radio Orchestra. After the reorganization in 1993 the Pilsen ensemble continued its journey under the name Pilsen Radio Orchestra - The Symphony Orchestra Pilsen. Since August 1998 the orchestra changed its legal form into Benevolent Corporation, whose founder is the City of Pilsen, and it re-accepted the name Pilsen Philharmonic.

The orchestra is regularly recording for Czech Radio and by doing so, it continues its tradition from 1946-1993 (Pilsen Radio Orchestra). It has recently recorded an opera The Day of Charity by B. Martinu, which received several prestigious awards, The Rhapsodies by Antonín Dvořák (both published by Arco Diva) or Bohuslav Martinů's Complete Works for Violoncello and Orchestra (Petr Nouzovský & Tomáš Brauner, published by Dabringhaus und Grimm).

Since 2013 the orchestra is also the organizer of the Smetana Days Festival.
