Monty Python’s Spamalot in the Brno City Theatre

After almost thirty years one of the group that created Monty Python – Eric Idle – decided to wrtie a musical version of the Holy Grail. In Brno it will be performed at the Brno City Theatre under the direction of Stanislav Slovák. The main roles will be taken by Petr Štěpán or Lukáš Vlček, Daniel Rymeš or Marco Salvadori and many others.

The musical comedy Spamalot had its premiere on Broadway in 2005 directed by Mike Nichols. In the course of four years it had 1 575 performances. In Brno the production was created under the direction of Stanislav Slovák to a translation by Zuzana Čtveráčková. The artistic conception of the scenes was handled by Christoph Weyers. The costumes are the work of Andrea Kučerová and Adéla Kučerová. The main roles are taken by Petr Štěpán or Lukáš Vlček (King Arthur) and Hana Holišová or Andrea Zelová (Lady of the Lake). The knights of the round table and dozens of other characters are played by Daniel Rymeš or Marco Salvadori, Ondřej Studénka or Dušan Vitázek, Jan Brožek or Ondřej Halámek, Lukáš Janota or Aleš Slanina, Rastislav Gajdoš or Ondřej Biravský, Jiří Ressler or Jonáš Florián and others.

The premiere will take place on 28 April 2018 at 7 p.m. in the Brno City Theatre.

As part of this year’s European Tour, Bobby McFerrin visited Brno’s Sono Centre, where he managed to perfectly use the brilliant acoustics and the close contact with the audience. The legend is back. Indeed, he comes back regularly, and not just to Brno.  more

This year’s eighteenth JazzFest Brno will exceptionally not close with a concert, but rather a unique (though not unusual for world festivals) series of musical and dance workshops, centred on children. On Saturday 4 May, in the pleasant environment of Café Práh, near Vaňkovka, the children students will be taken on board by the significant young personalities of the jazz scene: Beata Hlavenková (pianist and composition lecturer), Dano Šoltis (leader of the drum class) and the multi-instrumentalists Jiří Slavík and Marian Friedl (conductors of Wandering on Jazz Paths), who will be accompanied by Kateřina Hanzlíková with the Tancohraní lectures. With the exception of composition, where it is necessary for the participants to be older than twelve, all the other “classes” are open to everyone, including the youngest. We asked the co-author of the idea of the children’s workshop and director of JazzFest Brno, Vilém Spilka, for further information.  more

The musical Nine, based on the legendary film 8½ by director Frederico Fellini, was prepared under director Stanislav Moša as the penultimate premiere of the season at the Brno City Theatre. They prepared an at places almost erotic show, led by interesting scenography, well-made costumes, brilliant musical preparation and the energy of the female acting. The sensuality of some of the dance parts thankfully did not overshadow the central theme of the hero’s crises: mid-life, art and relationship.  more

This year's JazzFestBrno festival had several highlights – of course, it depended on each visitor's personal taste, their expectations, and of course on how many shows they managed to visit. For the author of this article, one of the highlights the evening with bassist Stanley Clark on 23 April, varied in genre and arrangement,  as well as the last but one concert of the festival, the performance of "the other" Avishai Cohen in the Husa na provázku Theatre on 28 April. It was a musically pure essence of jazz with a message – imperative, heartbreaking and poetic.  more

One of the musical highlights of last week was the concert of the Malina Brothers with two unique guest musicians, Kateřina García and Charlie McCoy in the Sono Centre in Brno. And because the performance was recorded on a professional video for the band’s first live DVD, the evening itself was extraordinary both in its length and quality.  more
