The season 2020—21 will be inaugurated by one of the most famous works in the history of music, Handel’s Messiah, and this “messianic” spirit pervades the dramaturgy of the whole concert series. The unconventional programme of the Advent concert will recreate the atmosphere of Italian Baroque Christmas and we shall celebrate the arrival of the New Year with Mozart’s Coronation Mass.


Story of the tragic love, Dido and Aeneas and St John Passion – the two February concerts

Dido and AeneasIn February, the concert Season of the Collegium 1704 came to its second half with two programmes: on 5 February, it is a story of the tragic love, Dido and Aeneas in concert version in the Prague Rudolfinum.
