At the closing concert of the season, Prague Symphony Orchestra will perform two scenes from the operas Tannhäuser and Lohengrin by Richard Wagner among others. The evening charged with music will culminate by The Polovtsian Dances by Alexander Borodin.
The closing concert doesn’t mean the beginning of the holiday for the members of Prague Symphony Orchestra. On 4th July they will perform at the International opera festival Smetanova Litomyšl where they introduce the world premiere of Lingua angelorum by Czech composer Sylvia Bodorova. This cycle of Italian, Latin, Spanish, English, German and Jewish songs for solo voice and a big symphony orchestra celebrates the 400th year anniversary of Rudolph II’s death and is dedicated to one of the greatest contemporary baritone singers Thomas Hampson.
