Brno, July 1, 2022 (BD) – Culture in Brno slows down during the heat of the summer, but popular performances of both opera and ballet will be taken outside for evening performances.

NdB Opera describes its annual summer series as “the best of opera under the heavens full of stars”. The courtyard of Spilberk Castle will host Puccini’s “La Bohème” on July 2, the same composer’s “Tosca” on August 27, and Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” (Lazebnik Sevillsky) on August 28.

In addition, for those who would like another reason to take a trip down to the wine-growing region, the Mikulov Amphitheatre will host Verdi’s “La Traviata” on August 30 and Bizet’s “Carmen” on August 31. Click here for more information about the Mikulov events. 

The Brno ballet company will perform “Romeo and Juliet” in Biskupsky dvur (“the Bishop’s Courtyard”) for NdB Open Air. Performances are on July 14, 15, 16, and 17, and all start at 8:15pm.
