Janáček Theatre, Brno: Plea for Support

It is a wearily familiar tale: under the guise of reconstruction, a much beloved opera company faces extinction. (Remember New Labour's vicious early assault upon the Royal Opera, thwarted at the last by Bernard Haitink's public appeal?) The Janáček Theatre in Brno faces at best an uncertain future as its ensemble is suspended. Please consider signing a petition in protest: click here for details and for the English version of the petition.
