Fireflies

Jan Jirásek

The Fireflies by Jan Karafiát from 1876 belong to the essential works of Czech literature for children. It was thus expected that a number of stage drama, opera, ballet and film productions would take place. Composer Jan Jirásek and his librettist Tomáš Jarkovský created a new production of this popular story for the Pilsen opera.

The aim of the new opera is to create a family performance for both young and older audiences who will learn a lot from the story of small beetles and their world, which intertwines with the world of people. Besides the opera soloists, the production will also feature a large choir, a children's choir, a ballet and a children's ballet.

World premiere on 12 October 2019 at the Grand Theatre.
