The opera Don Giovanni, the Estates Theatre and the long-standing Mozart tradition are among the greatest glories of Prague’s rich musical history.

The Estates Theatre is globally unique as the one and only preserved and still functional venue where a world premiere of a Mozart opera took place with the composer himself conducting. 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.

The opera is presented in the original Italian version with Czech and English subtitles projected above the stage.

The duration is 3 hours 5 minutes with one intermission.
