The Marionette theatre is a 3 centuries old Czech tradition. The National Marionette Theatre in Prague Old Town took over this historical tradition and now presents original productions created from several famous operas. These shows are a delight for both old and young public. The beautiful hand-made puppets and the splendid stage set are especially impressive. This theatre has a world-wide reputation since it has taken part in more than 20 international festivals.
Don Giovanni is the best of the Marionette Theatre shows. It has been played about 4500 times since 1991. This show also owes it success to the classical setting from 18th century and characters tailor-made for that stage. This adapted version of Don Giovanni is played in its original language, Italian, and pays an excellent tribute to its composer.Lenght: 2 hours (from 8 to 10 pm)
