International project Musica non grata
Music of persecuted composers
The international Musica non grata cultural project focuses on the rich musical life in Prague in the early 20th century and between the two world wars, which during the reign of the Nazis was markedly silenced. Directed at the arts and science, the four-year cycle affords opera, theatre and classical music lovers the opportunity to attend performances of opera productions, and concerts of symphonic and chamber works written by persecuted composers. The project also encompasses an accompanying scholastic programme aimed at setting up a digital library.
Musica non grata is a project pursued by the National Theatre Opera, the State Opera and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Prague. It opened with a gala concert at the State Opera on 30 August 2020.
