Performances of Don Giovanni in August 2018

The “Opera of Operas” on 9-31 August 2018 at the Estates Theatre

In the summer of 2018, the Estates Theatre will host performances of the legendary Don Giovanni production directed by Václav Kašlík, which received its premiere in 1969. The sets, designed by Josef Svoboda, inventively encompass the architectural elements of the auditorium itself, integrating the proscenium boxes as the main component of the scenery, and thus capitalising on the fact that the Estates Theatre was the venue of the world premiere of the “Opera of Operas”. The opening night, on 29 October 1787, was conducted by the composer himself.

Picture postcards featuring Emmy Destinn

To mark the 140th anniversary of the birth of Emmy Destinn, we have issued a set of 12 picture postcards, supplemented with a biography of the celebrated Czech opera singer, who at the beginning of the 20th century dazzled audiences in Berlin, Paris, London, New York and, naturally, Prague, her native city. The postcards are on sale at the National Theatre box office and in the shop on the dress circle of the historical building.
