Jan Vičar´s Magic Žítkov Goddess

Jan Vičar´s Magic Žítkov Goddess in First-Night Triumph

Cast in the stylized role of the title´s goddess (a village oracle) was Barbora Polášková, a leading Czech mezzo-soprano, soloist of the opera and operetta of the Moravian Theatre Olomouc, and Vičar´s long-time collaborator. The dark, velvety, ear-pleasing hues of her voice, coupled with formidably suggestive rendition and commanding concert-platform presence, evidently impressed an audience including prominently the composer himself.
