A prince, two women, and a spell ... recipe for love and loss in Rusalka (Dana Burešová, Eva Urbanová, Valentin Prolat)

For you and your family, it’s a pleasant summer evening’s entertainment — music, drama, top stars — all in the romantic setting of a castle courtyard or castle park.

But what’s it like to organize an open-air opera or opera highlights when you have to choose the right location, round up the opera singers … and hope it doesn’t rain?

Elizabeth Haas takes a peek backstage for a chat with Vratislav Kříž, himself a former opera singer and currently the organizer behind Opera Czech Republic. The company presents the National Theatre singers and its Orchestra in open-air opera performances each summer.
