For the upcoming summer, the Ondráš Military Art Ensemble is preparing a charity cycle called Evenings with Ondráš. Two evenings at Špilberk Castle will bring a repeated run of their new show, Krajinou času a Ondrášovské putování [Through the Landscape of Time and Wandering with Ondráš] in which the whole ensemble performs. The programme also includes a fairy-tale show for children.
The Ondráš Military Art Ensemble will present the first Brno repeat of its last programme, Krajinou času, in two evenings, featuring the professional part of the ensemble. The premiere took place in March this year. Among the choreographers of the individual numbers are, for example, Ladislava Košíková (Hradišťan) or Stanislav Marišler (SĽUK), the musical arrangements were made by Jan Rokyta Jr., Jiří Slavík and Jiří Gužík. There will also be a children's programme on the same day in the morning. The children's performance Zatoulané pohádky [Stray Fairy Tales] is suitable for pre-school and younger school-age children.
The second evening will feature the entire ensemble with its show called Ondrášovské putování. Wandering through music, singing and dancing will go from Bohemia through Moravia and Silesia to Slovakia. This programme, performed by 12 dance couples, will culminate with an almost acrobatic dance from Myjava, featuring the entire Folk Instruments Orchestra and a girls' choir.
The Krajinou času programme is announced to take place on 18 June, and the Ondrášovské putování on 19 June; both performances start at 8:00 pm. The fairy tale for children will take place on 18 June at 10:30 am in the courtyard of the Špilberk Castle.
Entrance to all performances is free of charge, but the event is a charity one – instead of an entrance fee, you can contribute to the cash boxes of the Military Solidarity Fund. The proceeds will be used to support soldiers and their families who fell into a difficult life situation.
