Czech It Out!

I know, I know - it's a terrible pun. But I just can't help myself - I'm so excited! You see, today's the day we're launching the Czech Point Denver website! (Along with an extra-awesome blog called Czech Mix.)

And what is Czech Point Denver, you ask? (An excellent question.) See, it all started when Opera Colorado decided to perform its first Czech opera, Rusalka. We thought, "Wouldn't it be cool if the whole city was as excited as we were?"

So we thought and planned and created and we came up with: Czech Point Denver. A city-wide celebration of the Czech cultural arts. And do you know who's playing? The Denver Art Museum. The Colorado Symphony. Rocky Mountain PBS. Buntport Theatre. The Mizel Center. And they're just a few of the many culturals who're participating. We've got preview events, Czech-themed cultural programs, films, kid-friendly entertainment, concerts, costumes, kolaches, ice cream...

...ok, we don't have ice cream. Yet. But you get the idea. This is gonna be an amazing festival with so much to do, you'll be dreaming in Czech. I'll be keeping you updated with what's going on, but you'll definitely want to check out the website and blog for events, interesting Czech trivia, and a whole section just for Rusalka.

Na shledanou!
