Prague State Opera

4.0 stars


Estates Opera

Prague is an opera-loving city. Mozart, an Austrian by birth, claimed Prague as his second home--you'll even see a children's book here about the Maestro in Prague named for a famous quote of his, "My Praguers Understand Me." Composers such as Smetana and Dvorak have their Prague digs immortalized here as museums. So naturally, the Prague Opera makes its home in not one, not two, but three separate houses for performances. If you're doing a theatre tour of the city, you could do worse than buy three opera tickets at the three different houses and get in that way. In fact, with a theatre such as The Estates (where Mozart himself conducted the Prague premiere of his masterpiece Don Giovanni), it's the only way you're going to get in. [more ]
