Live virtuoso performance by legendary orchestra Gypsy Devils. This talented ensemble of Romani musicians from Slovakia, led by the artistic director Ernest Sarkozi, plays original arrangements by combining classical pieces with musical genres such as jazz, ethno, flamenco and Gypsy. Together with interweaving styles, they add rhythmical and harmonic changes imbued with extraordinary brilliance. Performers: Ernest Sarkozi (cimbalom), Silvia Sarkozi (solo singing, cello), Stefan Banyak (violin), Jozef Farkas (viola), Robert Feher (double bass), Zoltan Grunza (clarinet, tarogato).

The 2019 Rehearsal for Truth Theater Festival is organized by the Vaclav Havel Library Foundation (VHLF) and Bohemian Benevolent and Literary Association (BBLA), in partnership with Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Slovak and Romanian performing arts organizations and cultural institutes. The series of events highlight Vaclav Havel’s legacy as a playwright through live performances, panel discussions, exhibitions and a ceremony for the Disturbing the Peace Award to a Courageous Writer at Risk. A key objective is to establish exchanges between U.S. and Central European theater professionals. The program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
