When In the Evening
Where? Maisel Synagogue

Highlights

* Enjoy a concert at the Maisel Synagogue in Prague.
* Don’t miss a chance to hear famous classical melodies in a unique historic environment

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.

The Hallelujah concert takes you on a trip back in time: from the most famous melodies in the classical repertoire to catchy modern numbers. The programme also includes traditional Jewish songs, both those played at celebrations as well as pieces full of emotion.
