Antonín Dvořák Stabat Mater, op. 58, B. 71
For its tenth anniversary the Dvořák Prague Festival has prepared an opening concert that in every way will be Dvořákian, Czech, and at the same time global. The master’s Stabat Mater will be rendered with a rare assemblage of stars from opera houses of the world, solo parts being taken by Kristine Opolais (who recently created Rusalka in the Metropolitan’s new staging of that opera), Jana Kurucová, Piotr Beczala, and René Pape. The presentation of this monumental and at the same time unpretentiously human work, full of humility, a union of human voices with soft, full orchestral colours, promises an extraordinary experience right at the outset of the festival.
