The first staging of Janacek’s satirical opera in 25 years. Set in Prague after the Spring revolution we follow the excursions of Mr Broucek to the Moon and 15th Century Prague.
Challenges included faking a moon landing for the Act 1 overture, making a man float to the moon, animating flying horses and historical image research all within a unifying aesthetic.
