Bohuslav Martinů in New York

“Julietta,” a 1930s opera by the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu performed in Carnegie Hall in New York.

Julietta, a 1930s opera by the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu was performed and conduced by the famous conductor Leon Botstein in Carnegie Hall in New York.

"Leon Botstein, the conductor and tireless champion of overlooked works, considers Julietta an operatic masterpiece that at least deserves a place in the repertory. On Friday at Carnegie Hall, he made his case by leading a winning cast and the American Symphony Orchestra in a vibrant concert performance."
