Leoš or the Most Faithfully Yours

The master and his life and music and death, or how a work from a remote Moravian village conquered the world – the three Leoš Janáček characters (as a boy, as a young man, as a mature man) and six women laid out in the form of stories of very laughable loves, reveal their hearts, desires and disappointments. The impetus for the new Goose on a String Theatre project was the personality of the renowned music and opera composer Leoš Janáček, who spent a large part of his creative life in Brno. In collaboration with the music scholar and composer Miloš Štědroň, a year-round cycle of discussions with leading experts on the works of Leoš Janáček was implemented. The culmination of the project is the staging of the play inspired by Leoš Janáček’s life story and his work in particular.

About the company

Goose on a String Theatre was founded in 1968 by students of theatre direction at Janáček Academy, along with their teacher and dramaturg Bořivoj Srba, as an open society, inspired by the interwar theatrical avant-garde. In recent years, the theatre has performed its productions on many Czech and foreign stages (New York, Paris, Budapest, Moscow, Lodz, Avignon and St. Petersburg)
