The Moser Glassworks presents its distinctive installation “Treasure Islands”. The very name of the installation rightly evokes something special, beautiful, valuable and an easy path to the unattainable. The Treasure Islands installation represents not just works of art from twelve leading Czech glass artists cooperating with Moser, but above all the most valuable thing we own, and that is our craft. Moser is an island of treasures, because for nearly 160 years it has maintained and further developed absolutely unique designs and the handmade processing of the highest quality crystal.
Václav Cigler, one of the leading personalities of the artistic generation of the 1960s, who very soon crossed the boundaries of the traditionally conceived glass-making and decided to head towards installations and realizations in architecture, exhibits his intimate as well as monumental works on the entire grounds of the château. Ciglerʼs oeuvre is one of the earliest examples of the nascent contemporary artistic expressions of the latter half of the 20th century (minimalism, land art). He soon selected optical glass as his main means of expression, because it allows him to work with light and kinetic phenomena.
The summer cultural life of Prague, a city closely linked with the professional carreer and life of the musical genius W. A. Mozart, will culminate this year by the 18th traditional series of Opera Mozart performances in The Estates Theatre. After the trium¬phal succes, Opera Mozart will once again stage a remake of the original world premiere of Don Giovanni, the most famous opera of all times. Do not miss the excellent spectacle with im¬pressive stage design, historical costumes and top-quality inter¬national singers, for only Prague can offer you this „opera of all times“ in the authentic setting where the Maestro himself conducted it in 1787.
11 days, 64 national expositions, 1000 artists, 70 countries, over 500 live events, more than 100 locations in the center of Prague. The best from the international and local scenography and theatre architecture. This will be PQ2015!
