Synopsis

A recording of the theatre performance of the opera Tomorrow There Will Be... by Aleš Březina (libretto and music) and Jiří Nekvasil (libreto and director of the theatre performance). The musical story, which had its theatre premiere on 9. 4. 2008 at the Kolowrat theatre, is composed of period documents and citations from court documents from the trial with Milada Horáková in the 1950s in Czechoslovakia. The libretto contains a record of her arrest, the selection and preparation for the trial, the hearing of Milada Horáková, the request for a pardon written by her father with her daughter Jana, the farewell letter that Milada Horáková wrote several hours before her death and the documentary pastiche composed of passages from Pavel Kohout’s Tomorrow People Will Be Dancing Everywhere.
