About Festival of Baroque Arts


Baroque Arts Festival Český Krumlov Baroque Arts Festival Český Krumlov

Baroque Arts Festival Český Krumlov was launched in 2008 in Český Krumlov. The principal impulse was based on the 12-year long efforts of the Festival dramaturgist, Mr. Ondřej Macek, to explore the original Baroque operas staged in the Czech lands in the firs half of the 18th century.
This expert research was crowned in 2007 by the discovery of a lost Vivaldi opera named "Agrippo" which was later festively staged in semi-scenic setting on 3 May 2008 on the Prague Castle (Spanish Hall) under the auspices of Mrs. Livie Klausová.

There is no other theatre building better prepared and placed for an original adaptation of a Baroque opera than the Castle Baroque theatre in Český Krumlov. In order to make the festive premiere of "Agrippo" in Český Krumlov more attractive to the media, to the sponsors and especially to visitors, the premiere programme was enlarged to include additional concerts and the entire project was named Baroque Arts Festival Český Krumlov.

Opera is a genre typical for the Baroque period, linking all notable period arts (music, poetry, visual art, scenic movement and dance). Most of the Festival takes places in the Castle theatre. The Festival exclusivity is further enhanced by the fact that it stages only previously unpublished operas or operas not staged in modern times. An elaborate research in Austrian, German and Italian archives helps discover interesting titles. The opera premieres in a semi-scenic setting each May in Prague and in a full scenic setting in October in Český Krumlov.

The Festival concept is based around staging Baroque operas according to today's possibilities with as much authenticity in the presentation as possible. A team of researchers associated in the Hofmusici ensemble prepares a modern age premiere of a new Baroque opera each year. A civic association Festivaly Český Krumlov looks after the media and sponsor relations.
