The Eternal Emmy

An exhibition commemorating the 80th anniversary

of Emmy Destinn’s death

 

The exhibition, supported by the National Museum in Prague, Museum Jindřichův Hradec and the Emmy Destinn Foundation in London will remember the greatest Czech diva of all time and her triumphant achievements on all the major world opera and concert stages. The focus will also be on her relationship with Leoš Janáček and Gustav Mahler and her performances in Brno and southern Moravia. No less interesting will be a look into her private life – through photographs, correspondence and personal possessions.  

 

In addition to the original recordings and film documents,  authentic exhibits on loan from the National Museum in Prague, Museum Jindřichův Hradec and the Emmy Destinn Foundation in London, will include the painting of the  Black Lady of Stráž, castle furnishings, theatrical costumes, caricatures she drew herself, unpublished correspondence, diary, passports and other objects.

 

‘Christmas with Emmy’ will be on show throughout December, in an Art Nouveau and Art Deco Advent setting.
