Bard SummerScape Presents Dvo?ák’s Dimitrij

DF0Tkt9XoAEht4q.jpg

Since the opening of the Fisher Center at Bard, Leon Botstein and the American Symphony Orchestra have been responsible for championing and restoring to the stage a growing number of important but long-neglected operas.

This year’s Bard SummerScape festival features the long overdue American premiere of Antonín Dvo?ák’s Dimitrij in an original new staging by award-winning director Anne Bogart. Dimitrij runs for five performances between today and August 6.

Dvo?ák’s work includes no fewer than twelve operas but his grand opera, Dimitrij, is rarely staged outside the Czech Republic.

Here to tell us more is Choral Director, James Bagwell.
