THE JANÁČEK BRNO FESTIVAL IS MOVING CONCERTS THAT COULD NOT BE PERFORMED THIS YEAR TO 2021
This year of the prestigious opera and music festival Janáček Brno had to adjust to the current complicated situation related to the spread of COVID-19. Still, the festival took place with great success from 28 September to 16 October in Brno as everything possible was done to keep the programme going. “This year’s audience attendance, having exceeded 65%, is a big success considering the current conditions,” Martin Glaser, the Director of the National Theatre Brno, added.
There were 18 events performed for audience in concert halls as part of the Janáček Brno festival in 2020. Live streams were an important part of this year’s festival as well; in total, the audience were able to see four festival concerts live. The festival live streams were watched by people in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Mexico, Italy, Hungary, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Great Britain, USA, Poland and other countries.
The National Theatre Brno decided not to cancel other events that could not take place this year due to the current measures. Therefore, the concerts are moved to next year. Since the Janáček Brno festival is biennial, there is an ideal opportunity. “The concerts will also be an invitation to the Janáček Brno 2022 festival that will take place between 2nd and 19th November 2022, with advance ticket sale starting on 30 November 2021.
