A cycle of mini-operas entitled Mluvící dobytek a tajemné kosti [Talking Cattle and Mysterious Bones] was written by court diverse authors – composer Ondřej Kyas and librettist Pavel Drábek. The Ensemble Opera Diversa will present a restored premiere of these "Elbe horrorroperras" in a new production by Kateřina Reichová.
The Brno's Káznice [a converted legacy jailhouse] on Cejl Street will host a series of shows by the Ensemble Opera Diversa: a cantata named Smějící se hlava [The Laughing Head], a "hydrological aria" called Labe [Elbe] and an opera titled Mluvící dobytek [Talking Cattle], all this in a new production by Kateřina Reichová. Ondřej Kyas and Pavel Drábek drew on short stories by Hubert Krejčí and Aleš Roleček, based on ghostly legends and tales of the Pardubice area, the Elbe district and especially the mysterious Kunětická Hora mountain. The restored première features the Ensemble Opera Diversa quartet, in addition to Hana Kuželová, Veronika Chlebková, Jakub Tuček, Vladimír Jindra, Zdeněk Nečas, Jiří Žouželka and Pavel Slivka.
The restored première is announced to take place on 7 June 2019 from 19:00 o'clock in Káznice on Cejl Street in Brno.
