National Theatre (Národní Divadlo)
+420 2 2490 1448
This imposing Neo-Renaissance building embodies Bohemia's rich musical and operatic tradition. National Theatre (Národní Divadlo) is the best place to see Czech opera favorites by Dvorak, Smetana and Janacek; there are usually four or five Czech operas in the repertoire during any given season. The National Theatre also specializes in rather conservative, solidly-sung productions of Italian opera. German works by Strauss and Wagner are also popular. The orchestra is always reliable, with occasional flashes of brilliance. Advance tickets go on sale one month prior to performance. Call ahead to find out more.
