About the Event

The Czech Christmas Mass by Jakub Jan Ryba is an inseparable part of the Czech Christmas celebrations. In Matěj Forman's direction, however, it comes to life in a completely different way. Alongside the orchestra, choir and soloists, a magical world of puppets is set in motion, transporting us back in time so that we can experience the narration of Ryba's Mass with our own eyes. Surrounded by faithful depictions of the classic Czech nativity scene, we can follow the story of the birth of Jesus Christ and the subsequent journey of the shepherds to Bethlehem. However, the Mass itself was too short for Matěj Forman's narrative, so he supplemented it with short excerpts of works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Georg Friedrich Händel, Joseph Haydn and Jiří Miroslav Procházka. The enchanting Rybovka is thus a rich feast for the eyes and ears.
