Cantata

Johann Sebastian Bach and Arnošt Lustig
31/5
Tuesday, 7 pm
Ostrava, the Mír theater

The oboe, strings and a poem in free verse by writer Arnošt Lustig – a seemingly disparate combination of two works of art. Bach’s and Lustig’s epic cantatas are intertwined with the theme of death as liberation from a world permeated with misery and despair.
