The magic of Christmas is already gone and many are looking forward to spring. However, TARJA TURUNEN does not let the power of the Christmas concerts, which she managed to sell out again last Christmas, fade away, and she threw herself into the preparations for this year's Christmas concerts, in order to enrich, make special and decorate this year's Advent, which is to come!

TARJA has a huge fan base in the Czech Republic, and not only in the metal rank. Her annual Christmas concerts are attended by people of all ages who love her musical talent, trained voice and always perfect, masterfully performed Christmas compositions from around the world, whether with a small accompaniment or a large symphony orchestra.

This year's Christmas concerts called "Dark Christmas" (after her latest Christmas album of the same name) will take place in 5 cities! OLOMOUC, OSTRAVA, ZLÍN, PLZEN and PRAGUE. The Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra from Zlín will accompany TARJA in 4 cities, in OLOMOUC, OSTRAVA, ZLÍN and PRAGUE. In the Pilsen Synagogue, the size of the stage does not allow the participation of a large philharmonic, so this concert will take place in a more intimate setting, without the philharmonic.

Once again, a slightly spooky, but still wonderful winter musical experience awaits you! Advent is still far away, but you can start looking forward to it now!
