Events of classical music – March 2017
Imagine a place where the beauty of ballet, the passion of opera, the power of philharmonic music and the intimacy of chamber concerts meets its audience in the most beautiful historical location. Imagine Bratislava goes classical.
Bratislava has long been linked with many of the great names in classical music who played their sonatas right in the homes of wealthy, aristocratic families. The streets of Bratislava had a ring to compositions from such famous names as Beethoven and Mozart.
The Slovak National Theatre was established in 1920 shortly after Czechoslovakia was established. There are two venues to choose from when booking ballet or opera tickets–the historical “old” building (built in neo-classicist style in 1884-1886) on Hviezdoslavovo Square and the so-called “new building” located on the banks of the Danube (built in 2007). To see prestigious opera and ballet performances in the SND’s historical building is an experience you won’t find elsewhere.
The symbol of classical music in Slovakia’s capital is the Slovak Philharmonic, inviting you to both symphony orchestra and chamber music concerts, featuring top musicians from around the world. So just sit back comfortably and be charmed by the beauty of their music.
