Brno, Janacek festival 2004

January & February of 2004 was my first extended stay in Brno. It was the 150th anniversary of the birth of Leos Janacek, and there was an enormous festival which included performances of all nine Janacek operas.

Sir Charles Mackerras conducted "The Excursions of Mr. Broucek" and the "Glagolitic Mass". Here is a photo of him after the performance together with soloists Eva Garajova, Petr Straka, and Helena Kaupova.
