If you’re thinking of coming dressed up as a detective at this year’s Carnival Concert, you’ll have to figure out the word hidden in the following riddle: zrgebcbyvgnan.
If you can’t, that’s OK. Show up anyway, but disguised as something else. In that case, you’ll just have to try and guess which disguise will bring maestro Jan Wierzba this time around, after António Variações in 2020 and The Joker in 2022.
You can also guess plenty more “geeks” scattered around the orchestra – perhaps vegetables or emojis. Either way, the most fabulous audience on earth is sure to be there.
