April Fool´s Day concerts are held sporadically, but they do appear on stages with serious artistic intent. No kidding! April Fool´s Day GALA has indeed found its way into the SND programme. The intention is to join you, members of our audience, in enjoying listening to some of the finest music pieces and watch performances we are unable to present to you during the season, given our extensive repertoire. Hence, our Opera house and Ballet company joined forces to make the most of the April Fool´s Day.

What´s in store are brilliant pieces by Rossini, Donizetti or Mozart that rightly belong to the sphere of vocal equilibristics. We shall also serve you a tender dose of ballet romanticism, since sentimental drop of tear is just the other side of that driven by laughter. You will also experience hot-bloodied Spanish tornado! And our operatic chorus will surprise you to learn that there is plenty of amusement even in this area of art.

Our laboratory will also open itself to you in order to let you explore the world of theatre alchemy behind the scenes. Hence, you shall experience some artists as you´ve never seen them. And the crème de la crème is our special guest star Emília Vášáryová featuring as the operatic diva Maria Callas. Do join us for the night full of splendid music, dance – and indeed surprises!
