The most famous opera by the French composer Georges Bizet Carmen could be heard throughout Třebíč at night at the end of May.
Třebíč saw the open-air monumental performance with an international cast open-air saw for the first time last year. The crowded auditorium watched Giuseppe Verdi’s opera Nabucco. Sound tests of an artistic ensemble consisting of a sixty-member symphonic orchestra began in the morning with an opera choir with 180 members and five soloists. The orchestra was conducted by conductor Norbert Bax and the performance was directed by Michael Tarant. The atmosphere of the open-air performance was enhanced by the silhouette of the castle with St. Prokop’s Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mezzo-soprano Andrea Kalivodová, a soloist of the Prague State Opera, was featured in the title role. The role of Don José was played by the Mexican tenor, Rafael Alvarez.
