Janacek in Brno

NG&SG - Middlesex

Dear Mr Blair,

We got back from Brno on Tuesday.  A very successful trip. Everything worked as expected.  Many thanks.

Hotel Grandezza is a very comfortable hotel, perfect location for the concerts at the Reduta, and convenient also for the Janacek Theatre. Getting to the Exhibition Centre for the Welsh opera performance was more of a challenge.  Taxi there, but how to get back?  In the end we followed the crowds and made it back by public transport.  We understand it was used as a location because there was a clash of performances at the Janacek Theatre.  If you ever send other customers there in the future, it would be helpful to make suggestions about the transport, there and back.  Not difficult, if you know how.

The Jenufa production was a very strange one, the two outside acts almost tableaux with the middle act a conventinal opera stage.  It was difficult to see much as we were very high up and far back. Next time I will ask you try for better seats!  But the orchestra and the singing were good.  And it is possible to just listen to Jenufa as the music is so wonderful.

Many thanks again.
