Performances and events

Don Giovanni in the Estates Theatre

4 January at 19:00

The opera Don Giovanni, the Estates Theatre and the long-standing Mozart tradition are among the greatest glories of Prague cultural history. The Estates Theatre is globally unique in that it is the one and only preserved and still functional venue where a world premiere of a Mozart opera took place with the composer himself conducting. And the Estates Theatre is all the more unique owing to the fact that this opera has been performed there for centuries. The world premiere of Don Giovanni on 29 October 1787 was a tremendous success and from Prague the new opera set out on its journey to global acclaim and admiration. Mozarts PRAGUE opera is one of the most frequently performed titles at the National Theatre. Mozart and Da Pontes opera is a work of Shakespearean multivalence, blending comedy and tragedy, giving rise to philosophical contemplations while at the same time affording entertainment replete with excitement and humour. The opera is staged in Italian original version and Czech and English surtitles are used in the performance.

La Traviata in the Karlin Music Theatre

4 January at 19:00

This staging of La Traviatta is one of the Prague State Opera most popular productions. In this work, based on the novel La Dame aux camelias by A. Dumas Jr., Verdi created the first major opera that deals with contemporary social issues.

Madama Butterfly in the National Theatre

5 January at 19:00

His subsequent choice of the subject matter implied that in the opera, Madama Butterfly, he had to master new forms of musical expression, a situation which was to repeat itself later on, with Turandot. He set out to study the customs and music of distant Japan, had a quantity of gramophone records sent in from Tokyo to become acquainted with Japanese folk music, and expended enormous efforts on capturing the Japanese local colour. Madama Butterfly is a masterpiece of atmospheric detail and poetry.

Andrea Chenier in the National Theatre

6 January at 19:00

A gem of Italian verismo opera, Giordanos Andrea Chenier was presented at the National Theatre in Prague in 1897, a mere year after its world premiere at La Scala in Milan, and three months following its first performance in Hamburg, conducted by Gustav Mahler. Yet since that time it has not been seen on our stage. Owing to the torrential dramatic music and extreme emotionality, as well as the atmosphere of the story set in the time of the French Revolution, it is one of the pinnacles of tha period opera. The style of Andrea Chenier is markedly Italian, with its sound colour and melody akin to that of Puccini and the forcibility of the crowd scenes reminiscent of Verdi late operas. Also bearing witness to its being close to Puccini is the librettist, Luigi Illica, the author of the texts for La boheme, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, who adapted for Giordano the story of the French poet Andre Chenier, one of the last victims of Robespierre Reign of Terror in 1793 and 1794. Giordanos opera depicts the drama of a love triangle, featuring the young aristocrat Maddalena, the servant Gerard and the poet Chenier. As a result of the revolutionary events, the initially innocent flirtation turns into a desperate and wild passion. Love amidst a revolution is a dangerous matter indeed. The production is conducted by the Artistic Director of the National Theatre Opera, Petr Kofron, and directed by Michal Docekal.

Extraordinary Voyages of Jules Verne in the Laterna Magika

6 January at 19:00

Project created for Laterna Magika by the dramatist and director David Drabek is inspired by Jules Verne famous novels, The Mysterious Island in particular. It is a reminiscence of scientific discoveries of the 19th century and of geographical, geological, physical and astronomical knowledge spread at that time. In one of the first studios of this brand-new and innovative media, a couple of filmmakers try to transfer the novel to the screen, even meeting with the great writer himself. This production thus connects several periods of technological development and scientific knowledge. The setting is inspired by a real film studio built by Thomas Alva Edison at the beginning of the century. In this environment, the fantastic images and intrepid heroes of Verne books come alive, but we follow the path of originality, not drawing upon the aesthetics of the period illustrations. The Extraordinary Voyages of Jules Verne is a colourful and engrossing show applying 21st century theatre and film media and making use of various projection surfaces, animations, fantastic costumes and props. The production works with multimedia, movement and drama theatre, and is intended for a wide age spectrum.
