We are lovers of classical music and experienced opera-goers. We wanted to see Mozart's Don Giovanni in Prague since it had its world première in this very theater. The fact that there were many (good) seats available less than half an hour before the performance would start, and the cheap price of the tickets (550 Kc each) made us a... More

Even if you don't like opera (which I don't), being in the very theater where Mozart was maestro is pretty awe-inspiring. The theater is simply stunning. The performance I saw was Don Giovanni and I sat in the first row of boxes house right, at the angle where there was no craning of the neck involved. I was glad to... More

What a way to experience my first live opera, "Don Giovanni", in the very place where Mozart first premiered and performed his masterpiece! My friends and I got very discounted tickets in the first upper gallery but moved to the third row at intermission. It made a big difference: DON'T get tickets on the side because craning your neck for... More

This was an unforgettable experience. I know Cosi fan Tutte well and found that the performers had some of the best voices I have heard. In addition they managed the comedic acting without overdoing it. The theatre itself is unbelievably beautiful. I was too excited to be sitting in a box (almost centre front).The interpretation for the staging is not... More

Beautiful opera house/theater. We went to see Don Giovanni, and it was superb! The orchestra was great and the lead soprano was wonderful! I will caveat this review by saying that this was my first live opera!

If in Prague and in the mood for Mozart, then go to Estates´ Theater! A small and cosy theater with quality performances.

We attended a performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni given by the Prague National Theater Opera Company at the Estates Theater in Prague, the same venue where Mozart conducted the 1787 premiere of Don Giovanni. In fact, the Estates Theater is the only opera house still standing where Mozart was the maestro. The Prague National Theater Opera Company performs only at... More

I would really recommend it to those who LOVE the opera or just opera in general. Otherwise, I don't think it's worth the money. I love music and I love musicals, but I was unfortunately pretty bored.. I watched Phantom of the Opera in London right before this though, so I guess that spoiled my appetite. I didn't think the...

Beautiful theater where Mozart first performed Don Giovanni. There is a reenactment of the debut during July and August.
