The musical's book was translated by Gabriel Sopeňa, a professor of history at Zaragoze. The production was first staged with great success in the Ta Fantastika in Prague.
"Spanish is close to me, thus I do not have any problem with it. I have been learning the language intensively since March and am now able to communicate in it", Šoralová said.
The Slovak singer performed Joan of Arc in the Czech Republic for the last time more than three years ago. "I am looking very much to playing Joan again. It is not a musical, it is a blessing", she added.
Apart from preparations for Spain, Šoralová is working on a new project, the musical Golem. Its premiere, along with opening of the reconstructed theatre Hyberia in Prague, is planned for November. She will play and sing the main role, Rebecca.
Družina CD on World Music Chart
The Slovak band Družina, which plays modernized Slovak folk tunes, enjoyed a pleasant surprise when its latest album, Tragare, reached 12th place in the World Music Charts Europe out of a total of 192 nominations from around the whole globe.
"It is even more amazing that our previous album from 2004 placed eleventh in the same chart. Therefore, it is obvious it was not a fluke, as some envious people have claimed," Družina wrote on its web page.
