The famed mezzo soprano Vivica Genaux will grace the concert titled Il divino Boemo at the Rudolfinum, featuring the music of Josef Mysliveček and Christoph Willibald Gluck, who both gathered their first musical experiences in Bohemia, and whose artistry was later admired all over Europe.
This fact has also been underscored by the recent production of Mysliveček’s opera L’Olimpiade performed by Collegium 1704 with Václav Luks. That production has enjoyed triumphant successes on European opera stages and has been recently nominated to Opera Awards in Rediscovered Works.
The world-famous American mezzo soprano Vivica Genaux, born in Fairbanks, Alaska, will appear as the soloist for this concert in Dvořák Hall at Prague’s Rudolfinum. She will be accompanied by the Collegium 1704 baroque orchestra, which plays on period instruments.
