Vitka

Kateřina Tučková, Director: Anna Davidová

a sinfonietta about a femme fatale from Brno
She began composing at the age of nine. She conducted the Czech Philharmonic and the BBC Orchestra. She established herself in a field that is still largely the preserve of men and surrounded herself with numerous lovers. She maintained a longstanding romantic and creative relationship with Bohuslav Martinů, who was married and a quarter of a century her senior. She died at the age of twenty-five. She remains one of the most frequently performed Czech composers. She even has her own postage stamp. If she had lived longer, she would have been one of the most famous Czech women.

A production by director Anna Davidová and writer Kateřina Tučková about the talent and passions of the Brno-based composer, conductor and femme fatale Vítězslava Kaprálová. A story of the tenacity with which a person can follow their desires and search for their purpose in life, in defiance of expectations. A story of an unbridled, passionate free spirit – in defiance of everything and everyone!

Tereza Marečková won the Divadelní Noviny Award for the role of Vitka.
