The New World Symphony: Dvořák in America, Phase 2

The New World Symphony: Dvořák in America, Phase 2 culminates the Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre’s recent exploration of the creative adventures of the great composer and pedagogue Antonín Dvořák. As a visiting artist in New York City for three years (1892-1895) the composer of The New World Symphony was based and lived on East 17th Street. Dvořák reveled in the New World’s dynamic growth, technological innovation, and especially African-American and Native-American music and culture, which he declared would give rise to a truly new American music.
