Miloš Orson Štědroň

Velvet Havel

What a hit! Just film it!

Velvet Havel is an original music theatre project of Miloš Orson Štědroň who made his way to the name of Václav Havel after his previous awarded theatrical projects dedicated to significant Czech personalities (Ivan Blatný, Jaroslav Hašek, Antonín Dvořák, Josef Gočár, Johann Gregor Mendel). Orson Štědroň is freely inspired by Havel’s life and work and tells the story of his life as well as the live around him and us with his authentic style and sense of humour. The musical form of the performance provides an opportunity to deal with the difficult and delicate theme of one of the most significant Czech characters (a legend already during his life) with a detached view and high level of originality.
