The Fire Classic is a unique project in which the unique Slovak group Cigánski Diabli and the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra will present themselves together on one stage.

The introduction of the show will feature the most famous melodies from the opera Carmen in an arrangement of Gypsy Devils enriched with their own variations, in which there are non-traditional and interesting fusions of original Bizet's music with other musical genres. The whole first half of the concert will take the form of a kind of musical duel. The symphony orchestra will perform in a completely equal position as the ensemble of the Gypsy Devils, and will therefore not only have an accompanying function. The ideological "music battle" between two solo ensembles will then give the whole evening incredible energy and charge. All this with the contribution of extraordinary virtuosity, which is an integral part of the artistic expression of the Gypsy Devils.

The timeless story of unhappy love and Bizet's composing skills were transformed into the author's famous opera Carmen. This time, however, this work, which excels in strong elements of Spanish and Gypsy temperament, comes to life in a form in which Bizet's romantic melodies are masterfully connected with elements of jazz, flamenco, etna and gypsy music and others. However, there will also be singing, which realistically depicts the character of a delicate and at the same time passionate and unfettered Carmen.

The second half of the evening will bring melodies of popular, classical, film, folk and music of the world-ethno genre. In this part, for example, the tones of the melancholic Slovak folk song The Peacock Girl, the popular Monti čardáš or the Oscar-winning music from the film Schindler's List will be heard. We cannot forget the ballad called Tribute to the Victims of the Holocaust, in which singing and music very sensitively express perhaps all the emotions that manifested themselves in such a tragic situation as the Shoah.

The fiery classic performed by the Gypsy Devils and the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic Orchestra will be performed under the baton of the renowned Slovak conductor Adrián Kokoš, who, among other things, works professionally in the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.
