With minor interpretational changes, we bring you the latest title in the successful series Czech Opera Highlights – The Best of Czech Opera. In the most famous arias (Song to the Moon, Our dream of love, Oh, you lindens and Prophecy from Libuše), duets (Faithful love, I know a maiden fair), choruses (Our time has come), you can recollect the beautiful voices of some of the finest singers in the National Theatre’s illustrious history. The unforgettable Beno Blachut as Dalibor, the legendary recording of Rusalka featuring Gabriela Benacková, Wieslaw Ochman and Richard Novák, the celebrated reopening of the National Theatre in 1983 with a performance of Libuše, or the no less famous recording of the Bartered Bride with Gabriela Benacková and Peter Dvorský in the lead roles.
