At the Estates Theatre in Prague, every evening between 13. 7. and 24. 8. you can listen to a captivating rendition of the famous Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni, performed by renowned Czech and international opera singers. The production of this classic under the direction of the Opera Mozart is the result of cooperation between The National Heritage Institute in Pardubice and The Académie Desprez. The outcome re-creates the authentic atmosphere of the opera’s world premiere, which took place in October 1787 at the very same Estates Theatre, and where Mozart, not only conducted his masterpiece, but also played the harpsichord.
Even though the story of the legendary libertine is presented on a regular basis in modern dress productions or adaptations for puppet theatre in various Prague cultural establishments, this summer classical adaptation of the Don Giovanni opera at his “home stage” gives the opportunity to all admirers of Mozart’s work to enjoy popular arias sung by artists in historical costumes on a traditionally set stage. Thanks to a careful and original production that includes special lightning corresponding to the techniques available during the second half of eighteenth century, you will experience and appreciate the magic atmosphere of the first performance to which the Prague audience gave resounding applause.
