My wife and me attended a performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. We had box 16 which is the 3rd one from the front right side watching towards the stage. The view was unobstructed and acoustic was good. It was a quality performance. We were fortunate enough to attend a performance with a full orchestra (about 30 musicians). They offer 2... More

One thing Prague is not short of is fine architecture, this is by far not out of that remit, It stands at the head of a cobbled street impressively like a queen upon her throne. Was out for a walk and was quite taken in by it, it was at night too, and I had had a couple of pints... More

If your a arts person/theater goer, Prague is for you. One of the classic theaters in Prague, Theater of the Estates (Stavovské Divadlo) is close to Vaclavské Náměstí, so Můstek is probably your best metro option. Beautiful theater, great productions. Nice from the outside, extravagant from the inside. In a good way. One of the great things about this, like... More

One of the reasons we chose to visit Prague was because we wanted to see Mozarts wonderful opera The Magic Flute. Enchanting and unique this performance did not disappoint and is the best we have ever seen. The music and singing was divine and the performance was funny and moving and left us on a high wanting more. The Estates... More

Estate Theater or Stavovské divadlo is a Neo- Classical theater which was built around 1783. It is the oldest theater of Prague. Mozart's opera Don Giovanni premiered here in 1834. His musical comedy called "Fislovacka" was also presented here for the first time. One of the songs of this musical gained so much popularity that it was made the Czech... More

Extraordinary production with outstanding singing. Worth seeing it for the sets alone, as well as surrealistic touches throughout that make it quintessentially Czech in this beautiful historic theatre. The presence of Mozart interacting with the singers, as well as cast members in the aisles and the boxes certainly added a lot of interest.

We saw Figaro here during our visit. Wonderful performance. Wonderful venue. Your program will be in Czech and you will get a one page English handout but do not worry, subtitles will be projected in Czech and English. While there are many reasons to visit Prague, its relationship with Mozart has got to be in the top 10 (okay maybe... More

As lovers of opera, we had feared that the current nightly performances of Don Giovanni may have been jaded 'tourist shows', but were very pleasantly surprised! The Stavovske Divadlo (Estates Theatre) is an exquisite, carefully restored, historic building - worth seeing in itself. Because it is small for an opera house, performances are very intimate, and its great acoustics assist... More

I had the opportunity to watch an impressive performance of mozart's "Don Giovanni" with excellent musicians and great singers. This together with the fact that mozart himself premiered this opera in this marvelous room, made this an unforgettable experience. highly recommended.
