Janáček Brno Festival
In 2004 the Janáček Brno Festival took place, and all of Leoš Janáček’s operas were performed. This event gave birth to the idea of a regular biennial, which has been held with great success since 2008. Today, the Janáček Brno International Festival is the only one in the world to present Leoš Janáček in the very places where he worked, lived and created for more than fifty years.
The Janáček Brno Festival is one of the most important events on the European cultural map, which nurtures the artistic legacy and comprehensively presents the work of one of the greatest Czech composers, Leoš Janáček, in an international context. Even in the Czech Republic, the position of the Janáček Brno Festival is unique, as it is the only one to present complete opera productions performed by both foreign and Czech ensembles in the aforementioned scope. Thanks to its international reputation, the festival has established artistic cooperation, quite exceptional in the Czech Republic.
