Highlights

Main description

The Maisel Synagogue used to be the largest and most beautiful synagogue of the Jewish Ghetto in Prague. It takes its name from its founder Mordechai Maisel, a leader in the Jewish community and a Court Jew during the reign of Emperor Rudolf II. In 2014–2015, the synagogue underwent a thorough reconstruction and modernisation, and today is used as a concert hall in the evenings.

At the Bolero concert you’ll hear the most famous works of Ravel, Rossini, Verdi and others. Accompanying the orchestra is soprano Michaela Šrůmová, whose passion and outstanding interpretation of Carmina Burana will capture your heart. The second half of the concert features well-known mournful Jewish songs that will take your breath away.
