The SEM Ensemble is currently preparing for a series of performances at the Ostrava Days 2015 Festival. There are several major events that the SEM Ensemble is participating in, including an opening night featuring music for three orchestras, among them Gruppen by Karlheinz Stockhausen and Variations by Petr Kotik.

We are now rehearsing the opera Master-Pieces by Petr Kotik with its entire cast, narrators, and orchestra. The stage director Jiří Nekvasil (also director of the national Moravian-Silesian theater in Ostrava) is in New York, preparing for the performance at Ostrava Days, which will take place on August 28th, 2015.

Want to see the dress rehearsal?
