    About

    National Theatre Chorus
    National Theatre Orchestra
    National Theatre Opera Ballet 

    And if we were to name the places at which Mozart in person premiered an opera of his and which still function as theatres, the one and only candidate in the world would be the Estates Theatre in Prague. The National Theatre Opera has proudly cherished this unique tradition for decades.
    Perhaps surprisingly, Don Giovanni, the “opera of operas” created for Prague, has to date never been staged at the National Theatre by a non-Czech director.
    Accordingly, the new production of the Mozart opera at the unique Estates Theatre is actually at variance with the long tradition – this time, an adaptation of Don Giovanni will be created by the Swedish-Norwegian stage director Alexander Mørk-Eidem in tandem with the German conductor and Mozart specialist Karsten Januschke. They are afforded wide scope for the portrayal of the world-famous profligate, who so easily magnetises women and wins their hearts. Is Giovanni an incorrigible slave to his instincts, or is he a provocateur, rebel, revolutionary even, human and symbol,  or is he a mere catalyst around whom Mozart thoroughly depicts the constantly changing universe of female emotions?
    To what degree will the new Don Giovanni at the Estates Theatre break with tradition in this regard?

    WARNING: Gunshots will be heard during the performance. We use artificial blood during the performance.
    Suitable for audience from 12 years.

     Co-production with the Nationaltheater Mannheim.

    A replica of Anna Chromy's sculpture Il Commendatore/The Cloak of Conscience is used in the production with the kind permission of the author.
