The Dvořák Prague International Music Festival has unveiled the program and began advance sale of tickets for the 10th anniversary season. The event, which bears the name of one of the greatest music composers, will showcase renowned soloists and some of the world's best orchestras and conductors during 7-23 September 2017. Apart from Antonín Dvořák's well- and lesser-known works, the festival will present the music of other composers from different eras. The event will feature star vocalists from the Metropolitan Opera and other prestigious establishments, such as Kristine Opolais, Piotr Beczala, René Pape, Michael Spyres, Adam Plachetka, and Jan Martiník. World-renowned orchestras performing at the festival will include the London Philharmonic Orchestra with chief conductor Vladimir Jurowski and the Essen Philharmonic with conductor Tomáš Netopil, who will also conduct the Vienna Symphony in the closing concert. An extraordinary experience will be a performance delivered by conductor Ingo Metzmacher and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, which will feature French piano virtuoso Jean-Yves Thibaudet. The program will include the festival's orchestra in residence, the Czech Philharmonic with conductor Jiří Bělohlávek, the Prague Philharmonia (PKF), and such leading vocal ensembles as the Prague Philharmonic Choir and the Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno. For the first time in the event's history, this year's edition will present the Dvořák Prague Festival Orchestra with an international roster of musicians.
