Barokní noc

The Chamber Music Festival will be festively opened with a Baroque Night on the Český Krumlov Castle. As soon as you enter the 4th castle courtyard, you will be transported back in time by 300 years. You will be kindly welcomed by the harlequins, merry dancers and musicians. The high nobility will receive you in the Castle chambers and lead you to the Baroque ball which will be completed by dancing, ballet and theatrical performances. Also present will be tables decked with delicacies. After the ball you can view a Baroque opera in the striking environment of the Castle theatre. This year you can expect a modern age world premiere of an opera Il Parnaso confuse by Josef Mysliveček performed by the Capella Regia ensemble. The Baroque night continues in the splendidly illuminated Castle gardens with a period feast. The night full of experiences will be concluded by Baroque fireworks.
