Prague Spring Debut with Alena Hron

The Prague Spring Debut is dedicated to the most promising young conductors, whose talent, musical quality, and artistic potential we assert with conviction. On Monday 22 May 2023 the festival stage will welcome the conductor Alena Hron (born Jelínková) at the head of the Prague Symphony Orchestra. Her first-ever festival performance will showcase an unorthodox programme consisting of Sergei Prokofiev’s popular ballet Romeo and Juliet, Ottorino Respighi’s richly coloured evocation of the Eternal City Pines of Rome, and Capriccio for Violoncello and Orchestra by the 20th-century Czech classic Jan Novák.
