The Adventures of Mr Broucek
  • Opera
  • Opera by late Czech composer Leoš Janáček.

    "The Adventures of Mr Broucek is one of Janácek's most vibrantly original works.

    The beer-fuelled Mr Broucek's adventures take him through space and time: first to the moon and then to the middle of the revolution in 15th-century Prague. By turns funny, surreal, tender and thrilling, the opera is full of wonderful portraits and parodies - of artists, poets, soldiers, and the ordinary people of Janácek's homeland.

    The music is just as varied as Broucek's adventures, from the extra-terrestrial sounds of the moon music, to the gorgeous orchestral interlude which transforms the action from the moon to Prague."
