The festival starts on May 12 and finishes on June 3 and features nearly two dozen concerts by world-class musicians and ensembles.
The Prague Spring Festival is being held for the 67th time. This year will be completely different as it includes online streamings of the concerts. All concerts will be broadcasted live via the Prague Spring website for free. Selected concerts will also be broadcasted by Czech Radio and Czech Television.
This year is unique because the Prague Spring Festival has been selected as a pilot project for the possible functioning of cultural events while the coronavirus pandemic is still being brought under control. Spectators are able to attend selected concerts in person but have to undergo a PCR test the day before.
The programme includes world-famous names such as Ion Marin, Mark Wigglesworth, the Huelgas Ensemble, Kiya Tabassian and Garrick Ohlsson and Collegium 1704 ensemble.
