Music from the repertoire of the New German Theatre in Prague.

For a full half a century (1888–1938), the New German Theatre occupied a truly special position within Prague’s music scene. Owing to its enlightened first director, Angelo Neumann, as well as his successors, it gave world premieres of some 30 operas (including Arnold Schönberg’s Erwartung, Eugen d‘Albert’s Tiefland and Hans Krása’s Verlobung im Traum) and hosted Czech premieres of 163 works (operas by Richard Strauss, Alexander Zemlinsky, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Franz Schreker, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Paul Hindemith, Paul Dukas, Kurt Weill and others). Plenty of other composers have fallen into oblivion, yet their works served as the necessary spawn for those whose names have found their way to the musical Olympus.

The State Opera concert will focus on these unjustly overlooked composers, within whose oeuvres true gems are to be found.
