Martin Bárta as Don Giovanni

Martin Bárta will sing the title part of Don Giovanni during August 2019 at the Estates Theatre in Prague. On 1 September 2019 he is going to perform this role in the Open Air auditorium Divoka Sarka Valley in Prague with the The National Theatre Prague ensemble  – a highly watched social event, each year visited by over 15 thousand people.

In the summer of 2018, the Estates Theatre will host performances of the legendary Don Giovanni production directed by Václav Kašlík, which received its premiere in 1969. The sets, designed by Josef Svoboda, inventively encompass the architectural elements of the auditorium itself, integrating the proscenium boxes as the main component of the scenery, and thus capitalising on the fact that the Estates Theatre was the venue of the world premiere of the “Opera of Operas”. The opening night, on 29 October 1787, was conducted by the composer himself.

The opera will be performed in the original Italian,
with Czech and English subtitles.


The Fiery Angel flies to Slovakia: Martin Bárta in the unique opera by Sergei Prokofiev

Czech baritone Martin Bárta will sing the role of Ruprecht in the rarely featured Prokofiev’s opera The Fiery Angel in the historical building of the Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava (Slovakia) during the International Opera Festival Eurokontext. The performance starts on 29 May, 2016 at 7 pm.
Martin Bárta was nominated for Thalia Award 2015 for this role sung at the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre in Ostrava, the Czech Republic.
The Fiery Angel, a fascinating operatic tale about the knight Ruprecht and a devil-possessed young woman Renata, is historicaly the first production of Prokofiev’s famous work in the Czech Republic in its Russian original. This work is performed very rarely for its vocal as well as musical demands even in the world context.
