Don Giovanni has a unique attachment to Prague. It was while staying in the city in 1787 that W.A. Mozart composed the opera. Then personally conducted its world premiere at the magnificent Estates Theatre.
This marionette theatre version tells the classic tale with tall puppets dressed in authentic 18th century period costumes. The production pays homage to the Mozart era. It is truly a joy to experience.
