Třeboňská nocturna – a summer festival of classical music whose aim it is to bring top Czech and foreign performers to Třeboň and to offer visitors to the town music that at other times is only found on the most respected of Czech and world stages. Quality music played by well-known performers and the cosy atmosphere of the square or chateau in Třeboň combine to guarantee visitors to the festival an unforgettable, uplifting experience every year.

Ladies and gentlemen,
It is our great pleasure that we can invite you to the 10th International Music Festival Třeboňská nocturna, which will be held from the 8th – 13th of July 2013. We are proud of the age we have reached. It is necessary to remember under what circumstances and conditions the festival originated. It should be noted that from the very beginning it was an advantage that many enthusiastic people helped this idea, and that it was also supported by those who are not fans of classical music much, yet assisted in all kinds of places with a sense of the need to spotlight cultural events in Třeboň in the context of the whole country.
This year’s dramaturgy has again invited outstanding artists from home and abroad to collaborate. Each concert will offer something significant from the rich treasury of classical music. It will certainly be a great pleasure for all listeners to see the performing arts of cellist Tomáš Jamník together with the pianist Ivo Kahánek, Slovak flautist Simon Pingitzer together with the Chamber Orchestra of Český Krumlov and recitation of Valérie Zawadská or South Bohemian Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra under the conductor Jaroslav Krček together with the trombone soloist Lukáš Moťka and soprano Anna Klamo, winner of Thália 2011, and a number of other great artists. The traditional exception will be Friday’s program, when the courtyard of the Municipal Authority will present the musicals of two Thália Award recipients in this genre, Monika Absolonová and Dušan Vitázek.
Let’s hope that this festival will be pleasing once again to all those who are fans of the genre, performed by top artists in an environment that only Třeboň and its historical sites can offer. We look forward to seeing you,
