A spellbinding entry into the world of opera for both children and parents. A journey to a strange land inhabited by weird and wonderful creatures and monsters, where unusual trees and curiously shaped flowers grow and strange laws of nature govern. Welcome to the fantastical world of the Forman brothers!
Enchantia is the realm of mythical and fantastic creatures whose existence has been documented for many years. The British explorer, naturalist and author Gerald Durrell (1925–1995) first introduced this fantasy world forty years ago in his novel The Talking Parcel. It tells the story of children who are transported to the strange land of Mythologia, which is inhabited by magical beings and animals and where extraordinary trees and flowers of incredible shapes and sizes grow. The magical land also has its own set of rules and laws invented by the wizard H.H. Junketbury. The secret entrance to this glorious world was discovered in the Greek mountains, where according to ancient mythology these magical creatures had once lived. In 2009 an independent team of explorers and scientists, led by the mythologists Marko Ivanović and brothers Petr and Matěj Forman (sons of Miloš Forman), searched for the entrance to this magical world of Enchantia...
You can enter Enchantia in two ways – the classic route through the main entrance of the Janáček Theatre or via a secret subterranean world.
