I know the story of Don Giovanni so to start with was not sure whether or not to laugh at the marionette antics of "Mozart" but it is just such fun you cannot help but enjoy it. The opera experience is condensed and the music...More

Provided you know either the opera itself, or a basic plot of it, this condensed (a bit over 1hour) show is entertaining, using recorded music over the puppet's actions The puppet (or maybe marionette) show is expertly handled - these are professionals, and it has...More

If you love opera and marionettes, you may like this one. We watched Don Giovanni, hoping that it would be a refreshing and unique experience, but came away disappointed. The music is canned, and the show seems largely to be aimed at kids with its...More

This fun local theatre had a wonderful opera performance. They did a great job at handling the marionettes and putting together a great story line. The theatre offers a mini shop to buy the marionettes and a small concession stand for customers. If you have...More

I was skeptical of seeing a marionette show when we visited Prague, but I enjoyed it. The performance was just about 2 hours (Don Giovani) and very entertaining. It's a good activity for a group or a nice way to relax and spend some time...More

My wife, mother-in-law and I thought the Marionette Theater production of Don Giovanni was fabulous. I never thought there could be so much humor in Mozart's opera of the famous libertine. The Commendatore was a complete surprise!

Marionette show is basically a puppet show. It was a different form of story telling. The show was quite interesting with the story of Don Giovani. They use Mozart's pieces through out the 1.5hour of the show. If only they keep the dolls well-maintained and...More

We loved the show. Remember the old joke, 'when does it start? When can you get here?' That was us at 40% of the audience. Theatre is old and in the attic of a building in the old city close to the clock. It takes...More

The price for 1 adult here was 590 CZK. More than double the price of a guided tour of the klementium but nowhere near as fun. Especially right off the bat how cheap things in Prague are, 590 really feels like a tourists trap. The...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
