As part of the ARTE Opera Season, the Czech National Theatre is showing a classic from the Czech repertoire.
In this opera, Bedřich Smetana tells the story of an avenger figure from Czech history, whom he elevates to the rank of national hero. The opera is conducted by Jaroslav Kyzlink while Jiří Nekvasil signs the stage direction.
Jiří Nekvasil is one of the leading opera directors in the Czech Republic. His version of Dalibor is a heroic epic with heartbreaking undertones. Jaroslav Kyzlink, Music Director of the National Theatre Opera in Prague and world-renowned interpreter of the Czech repertoire, conducts the orchestra. Slovak tenor Michal Lehotský sings the role of the violin-playing knight.
