MORE ON PROJECT NEPOMUK

A group of Liverpool artists and musicians went to the Czech Republic in June as part of Project Nepomuk, a cross-border cultural exchange.

4 artists and musicians met their Czech counter parts to start a collaboration towards the production of a newly written opera Nepomuk and art exhibition, to take place in Liverpool in October.

As part of the project, a British evening took place in November in the Czech Republic. Followed in January 2018 by an invite to sing at the Alpha Theatre Plzen, which was broadcast on Czech Radio. In March 2018 there was a UK celebration with a Czech themed evening in central Liverpool with Czech drink, art and music to entertainment.

In June 2018 there was a concert performance of the opera Nepomuk.

NEPOMUK. AN OPERA IN 2 ACTS.

The opera NEPOMUK by the composer Barry Webb was performed in Liverpool as part of Project Nepomuk.

The opera can be fully staged, but will be sung as a cantata, in the same way perhaps as Britten`s Curlew River.

This is part of a rehearsal of part of the first act.
