Laterna magika

Laterna magica, a fascinating artistic genre, entered the scene in Prague in the 1950s. This original form of theatre combines film projections, live actors, music and lighting effects to create an immersive and multi-dimensional performance. Founded in 1958, Prague’s Laterna Magika has become one of the world’s most important venues for this art form. Originally created for the EXPO 58 World Exhibition in Brussels, this innovative form of artistic expression soon gained popularity and became a permanent part of the cultural scene in Prague. Laterna magica combines cinematic images with moving scenes, creating the impression that the viewer is entering a magical world. The dazzling combination of lights, shadows, music and dance performances gives the show an unforgettable and often surreal character. So far, Prague’s Laterna magika has presented a unique experience for visitors who want to explore the boundaries between film, theatre and visual art. It is a unique cultural gem that continues to attract the attention of art lovers from all over the world.

Laterna magika is part of the National Theatre. For the current program and ticket reservations, please contact us by e-mail.
