Two amazing stars on one stage! An exclusive programme is going to be offered by the mezzosopranist Magdalena Kožená, featuring extraordinary inventive dramaturgy; Antonio Ríos Fernández known as El Pipa, considered to be the heir of pure flamenco, will be one of the guests. The music accompaniment will be provided by the Private Musicke by Pierra Pitzla, a magician of historical plucked instruments, who earned the nickname „Jimmy Hendrix of Baroque Guitar“. It will also be the only performance of Magdalena Kozena in her home country this year.
The Fotograf Festival explores intersections in photography and contemporary art. Over the course of Autumn months, it presents solo as well as group exhibitions prepared in cooperation with various Prague galleries and institutions. The Festival covers a wide range of events that go beyond the medium of photography, including community projects, performances, discussions, walks, and get-togethers outside of the established exhibition spaces.

During the summer, the gardens surrounding the Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia will be a venue for workshops, music or theatre performances, film screening and sport activities. There is no admission charge for the individual events, as well as for the entrance to the gardens. And if you want to just relax after a busy day, simply enjoy the beautiful gardens which house nearly two dozen sculptures by contemporary artists – Aleš Veselý, Jaroslav Róna, Stanislav Kolíbal and Karel Malich. A perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon or have a picnic!
