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.


Collegium 1704 performed in the Theater an der Wien

Theater an der Wien  VBWOn Friday 28th March, Collegium 1704 performed in one of the most prestigious theater in Europe, Theater an der Wien. Collegium 1704 came back to Vienna after a triumphal premiére in Konzerthaus in January: this time it was with appreciated opera Olimpiade by Josef Mysliveček in a concert version.

"Das von der „konzertanten“ Vorstellung begeisterte Publikum, das des Öfteren mit Szenenapplaus aufwartete, dankte am Schluss dem Sängerensemble sowie dem Orchester und seinem Dirigenten mit minutenlangem, nicht enden wollendem Beifall." were the words describing the concert in Der Neue Merker magazine.

Olimpiade will be performed in the same cast as in the last season on stages of National Theatre in Prague, Luxembourg, Dijon and Caen – with fabulous Raffaella Milanesi in the main role, Sophie Harmsen, Johannes Chum and Simona Houda-Šaturová. The Olimpiade production premiéred last year got unprecedented international acclaim which has been affirmed by the nomination for The International Opera Awards in the Rediscovered Works category. These „opera Oscars“ will be announced in London on 7th April. In fall 2014, Olimpiade gets back on the stage of the National Theatre in Prague.
