Where to Go: Your Oct 2014 Calendar
Classic autumn days are a trademark of the beauty of the Czech Republic. Why not visit some historic Czech sites before enjoying a classic Czech live performance?
And there are so many high-quality performances to enjoy!
The PKF-Prague Philharmonia teams up with the Prague Philharmonic Choir for a classic performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony Oct 5. The Czech Philharmonic invites you to enjoy their “Open Day” Oct 18, and they’re beaming their first live satellite broadcast Oct 25. And just in time for Halloween, the Czech National Ballet reprises its memorably spooky Čarodějův Učeň (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) Oct 30. And that’s just a few ideas to get you started.
How can you access the October Calendar on Opus Osm? Two easy ways:
Look at the “Events” calendar in the upper right corner of any Opus Osm page (“Clickable Events Calendar – Click Orange Dates”). Click on any orange date and you’ll see a list of titles for that day’s performances.
Then click on any title, and you’ll see the performance details. But remember! If every date is orange, it’s because there are performances every single day of that month (non-performance days are gray).
Click on the black “Calendar” tab at the top of any Opus Osm page. You’ll see three choices. The first is “Events Calendar.” Click on it, and you’ll see a large calendar with the title of every performance for each day. Click on any performance title to see its basic details.
The second choice under “Calendar” is a comprehensive list of “Performance Addresses” – the street addresses of more than 70 classical performance locations in Prague. And then choose the third choice, “Czech-English / English-Czech Terms,” to help decipher information on tickets, posters, and in program books.
More Ways to Find Something to Do
Check the far right column on any Opus Osm page except the Home page. There you’ll see our listing of high-quality “Performances for 200 Kč or Less” (who said the classics have to be expensive?); “Performances Out of Prague” (in case you’re “not in”); and “News Notes” (free tickets to win! plus news of exhibitions, CD releases, tidbits, etc).
So now you know where to go to find great Czech performances. Wishing you a classic Czech October filled with beautiful classical music and dance! – oo
