Kateřina Kněžíková – soprano
 – artistic leader

Czech audiences will never forget her performance in Don Giovanni, conducted by Plácido Domingo. However, this charming singer with a beautiful voice has many other successful international highlights to her name such as her work with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Camerata Salzburg and the theatre houses in Caen, Brussels, Versailles and Dijon. Until recently her core repertoire mainly consisted of Mozart’s operas, but she has been gradually adding Bel canto works from the 19th and 20th centuries. She divides her time between her career as an opera and concert singer, and she was the recipient of the Classic Prague Award 2018 for her chamber project with the harpist Kateřina Englichová. On the first evening we will hear her captivating soprano voice in an incredibly beautiful repertoire — the impressionist-styled songs of Gabriel Fauré and the laments of Ariadne in versions by Claudio Monteverdi and Bohuslav Martinů.
