On 30 April the Theatre Trier, Germany, launched for the first time in its history one of Leoš Janáček’s less frequently played operas The Excursions of Mr. Brouček (1920). The production was created by Jasmina Hadziahmetovic, a Germany-based director of Bosnian origin who has collaborated as an assistant director with several renowned institutions such as Komische Oper Berlin or the Bayreuth Festival.
The Philharmonic Orchestra Trier is led by its music director Victor Puhl. Apart from the tenor Johannes Preissinger in the title role of Matěj Brouček the cast includes Aldo di Toro (a painter, Azurean, Pete), Lukas Schmid (Sacristan, Lunigrove, Dmšík from the Bell) or Talia Or (Málinka, Etherea, Kunka). Sung in German, the opera will be played five times more in the course of May.
