 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.
