Jakub Hrůša presents enthralling settings of three dark tales. We experience Shakespeare’s Othello in the gripping tonal language of Antonín Dvořák, witness the last moments of Cleopatra in Hector Berlioz’s eponymous psychological drama (soloist: Stéphanie d'Oustrac), and Béla Bartók tells with brutal energy the sinister story of The Miraculous Mandarin. Plus a discovery: the inexorable progress of the passacaglia Mysterium času (Mystery of Time) by Miloslav Kabeláč.
