The stories of the merry friends from Sesame Street, so well known to all children and their parents from TV, will come to life on Czech stages. Elmo and others will perform a cheerful show full of songs, dancing, funny skits and endless entertainment in Sesame Street Live – Elmo Makes Music, the original family show based on a popular TV series.

Like television’s Sesame Street, each Sesame Street Live production features timeless lessons for all ages.  Through the razzle-dazzle of this musical Broadway-quality musical production, children learn about patience, acceptance and teamwork.  “Elmo Makes Music” features nearly two dozen songs, including classics that children will love to sing along with such as “C Is for Cookie” and “The Alphabet Song.”

 

Czech dubbing was finished recently. The main characters from the original English version were voiceovered by Michal Holán – Elmo, Bohdan Tůma – Big Bird, Klára Šumanová – Zoe, Jan Maxián – Ernie, Jakub Saic – Bert and other renowned voice talents. The actors have had to sing the very challenging singing parts – some of them resembling Broadway musicals – nevertheless enjoying it very much. Viewers who will still want to practice their English skills can listen to the original English version using headphones, which can be borrowed before the beginning of the show.

 

The TV show Sesame Street is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. Its creator Joan Ganz Cooney originally thought the show would only run for a year at the most, but Sesame Street is still on air today in 140 countries around the world. Its success was almost immediate, with the show combining entertainment and education in a way never seen before. It taught kids important social and dietary issues, sensitively introduced them to life’s difficult situations and, above all, gave them a good portion of crazy fun. In 1970 the creators won a number of awards including 3 Emmys and in 1995 a further 2 Peabody Awards. Sesame Street represented a small revolution in TV entertainment for children in many respects. At the time that Sesame Street first hit the screens it was by no means common practise for scientists and sociologists to take part in a children’s broadcast, carefully researching and testing each new edition of the show. In the Czech Republic Sesame Street was first screened in 2002 and runs to this date.

 

The immense popularity of the series is also supported by a long list of celebrities who have played or sung in Sesame Street over the years: for example Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Liam Neeson, Andrea Bocelli, Johnny Cash, Susanne Sarandon, Paul Simon, Ray Charles, Bruno Mars, Norah Jones, Diana Krall, Stevie Wonder, Halle Berry, Jude Law and Robin Williams.

Even Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have made appearances in Sesame Street. Elmo is simply a proper superstar.

ANDREA BOCELLI – CHRISTMAS ROMANCE – O2 arena 28.11. 2015

ANDREA BOCELLI IN CONCERT

CHRISTMAS ROMANCE

November 28, 2015 at the O2 Arena Prague

image001

 

 

The famous Italian tenor returns to Prague O2 arena with his Christmas Romance concert on November 28th, 2015.Andrea Bocelli dazzled the packed O2 arena when he was last here in 2013 and demand for the performance was so high that tickets sold out long before he went on stage. For those fans who weren’t able to see Bocelli in person, a promise was made that the world famous singer would return to Prague again soon.

The charismatic classical and pop music singer, whose star rose rapidly during the 90s, and who has sold over 80 million albums worldwide, is an acclaimed ambassador of Italian music who, this April, received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Billboard Latin Music Awards in Miami.

 

Also this year, Bocelli has released yet another successful album of opera, Manon Lescaut, along with Plácido Domingo and Ana Maria Martinéz. The lyrics to the song Tomorrow in Milan (“La Forza del Sorriso”) are sung to the music of composer Andrea Morricone (son of Ennio Morricone) and the song has become the soundtrack for Expo 2015.

 

Bocelli’s concerts are famous for their diverse repertoire drawing from many genres, and for outstanding duets with such stars as Zucchero, Sarah Brightman, Tony Bennett, Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion. At the beginning of his career, Bocelli enjoyed the patronage of stars such as Luciano Pavarotti and Zucchero. But it was the song “Con Te Partiró”, that catapulted him to worldwide fame and which he later sang in an unforgettable duet with Sarah Brightman as “Time to Say Goodbye”.

 

Bocelli’s Christmas Romance will see the Maestro perform classical arias from the most famous Italian and international operas. He will also delight the crowd with songs from his album, Love in Portofino, and possibly one or two surprises, and of course, songs reflecting the Christmas spirit will be part of the Repertoire as well. The tenor will be accompanied by the Czech National Symphonic Orchestra along with its choir conducted by Maestro Marcello Rota and other special guests, who will be announced later.

 

Tickets  available through Ticketportal and Andrea Bocelli official pages from October 6, 2014, with prices from 950 CZK to 12.500 CZK for a VIP Platinum package.

 

The VIP Platinum package includes tickets to the best seats right in front of the stage and cocktails before the concert.

Can the Lord still win the battle?

 

Another battle, this time for the love of the Lord of the Dance impersonated by fantastic Flatley’s successors (excellent James Keegan at the Palladium), is fought between beautiful Saoirse and bewitching Morrighan. Audiences would also enjoy impressive songs sung by the charming singer or spellbinding melodies played by the 2 sexy violin players.

In a touching opening video sequence Michael Flatley will lead the audience on the journey from where he began to now, as he passes on his talent and charisma to a brilliant new Lord and cast.

 

This dramatic new version of the original Lord of the Dance reaches a crescendo with a nail biting duel between the new Lord and his dark nemesis Don Dorcha. As always the show finishes with its world famous encore that will leave audiences on their feet time and time again.

 

Good versus evil in the 21st century takes on a whole new meaning.

 

These are Dangerous Games!

VIENNA STRAUSS ORCHESTRA & EDVIN MARTON 2012

CHRISTMAS IN VIENNA – 8.12.2012 FROM 7PM – KV ARÉNA KARLOVY VARY

 

The tradition of the world famous Strauss Dynasty was started by Johann Strauss father when he founded his first ‘Strauss Orchestra’ in Vienna in 1825.

Masterpieces like “The Blue Danube” Waltz, “The Vienna Blood” Waltz, “Tritsch-Tratsch” Polka, The Radetzky March and many many more were created by the magnificent Strauss Dynasty.

Current ‘Vienna Strauss Orchestra’ was formed by Edvin Marton in 2009. He was learning the authentic style of Strauss in Vienna Music Academy and realized his dream to pay tribute to Strauss Dynasty.

The Orchestra ranges in size from 17 to 40 musicians, depending on the venue, and plays pieces by Johann Strauss and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. With the best musicians, the Vienna Strauss Orchestra already played in beautiful halls of North and Latin America, Europe and Asia. Upcoming events in the schedule of VSO: tours in China, Russia, Serbia, Romania, Slovakia, Czech Republic and USA.

Edvin Marton is one of the best violinist of our time and maybe his oldest dream came true with this honour to tradition of Strauss.

Edvin Marton, who is the composer of the Olympic- and World-Champion figure skater, Evgeny Plushenko, won Emmy-Award in 2006 and won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008, plays the
original Antonius Stradivarius violin from 1697. He performed with celebrities like Seal, Zucchero, Lou Brega or Supertramp, jumped on stage with Gloria Gaynor, etc.

Founding the current group, Edvin Marton brought not only a beautiful tone but his own energetic and passionate style to the traditional Viennese music. With his contribution, the performance is not only a usual classical concert but a really entertaining show with definitely original sound and instrumentation. In concert with opera singers and principal ballet dancers, the VSO brings the stunning compositions of Strauss and Mozart to life.
