Post-Festival Tour

We realize that Texas is a pretty big place and that not everyone will be able to visit us for the program taking place on the UNT campus. 

It has been our custom to take the keynote work of our Czech festivals "on the road" to various Texas-Czech communities.  In 2013 we toured with Prodaná nevěsta (The Bartered Bride), performed in Czech; in 2015, we toured with our Česká mše vánoční (Czech Christmas Mass), once again performed in Czech. 

Just after the completeion of our 2018 festival on Saturday evening, we'll offer a special one-time performance in Praha on Sunday . . . and then on Tuesday we'll pack up the trucks to take scenes from Leoš Janáček's Příhody lišky Bystroušky (The Cunning Little Vixen) to five cities—performing in Czech and complete with costumes and surprises.
