THE BOHEMIAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA OF PRAGUE

Orchestra and Band in perfect symbiosis

As soon as Merlin and the knights of the round table enter the stage, in order to take away the audience to foreign lands of the Arthur saga, you will not only be taken through one of the biggest legends of all time with rock music, but also via the classic string notes of the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Martin Sanda. Where the rock music represents the harshness of the Celtic middle ages, the Symphonic Orchestra will enchant their listeners with the airwaves of myths and stories.

 

Travel with Excalibur into the mythical Celtic world

 

16 years of music

When the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra of Prague was founded in the year 2000, nobody knew what journey lay ahead of those educated, classic musicians.

From the beginning, the Orchestra has been able to prove their high standard of professionalism, with both the full cast of 70 musicians and a small chamber music ensemble.

The orchestra demonstrated their vast diversity in interests and their devotion to art by performing classical works from Mozart to Antonin Dvorak, with music of the Czech pop sensation Iveta Bartosova over to film- and gaming-soundtracks or musicals to stage adaptions of Jeff Waynes “War of the Worlds”.

 

Symphony and Rock in perfection – save your seat now

 

The passion for rock music was demonstrated in the years of 2010 to 2015 with their engagement at "Rock meets Classic", they had the chance to tour with the central masterminds of legendary rock acts such as Deep Purple, Status Quo or Alice Cooper. During that time they created breathtaking new interpretations of some of world’s biggest rock music.

 

Excalibur awakens the Celtic mythology

Acting, dancing, music and vocal performances all together create Excalibur – a rock opera of highest standards in stage-art, with a base of medieval Celtic music traditions and modern rock. This one of a kind mixture is held together by the delicate structures of the American composer Lee Holdridge, who performed together with Alan Simon on “Gaia”, “Tristan & Isolde” and two of the past Excalibur shows. His inspiring symphonic scores and the outstanding professionalism of the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Prague turn the new Excalibur into a show of critical acclaim.
