Details

The beer-fuelled Mr Broucek's adventures take him through space and time: first to the moon and then to the middle of the revolution in 15th century Prague. By turns funny, surreal, tender and thrilling, the opera is full of wonderful portraits and parodies - of Janacek's homeland. Bagpipes and an organ add an edge to the stirringly patriotic hussite hymns and celebrations sung by a 40-strong chorus. Sung in English with English supertitles.

Performers John Graham Hall (Mr Broucek), Jeffrey Lloyd Roberts (Mazal/Blankytny/Petrik), Anne-Sophie Duprels (Malinka/Etherea/Kunka), Donald Maxwell (Wurfl/Patron/Councillor), Claire Wild (Pot-Boy/Child Prodigy), Frances McCafferty (Fanny Novakova/Kreduta), Richard Burkhard (Student/Panicova/Vacek Big Chin), Adrian Dwyer (Student/Composer/Voiceover/Miroslav), Phillip O'Brien (Student/Allova/Vojta).
