Estates Theater (Stavovské Divadlo)

The Estates Theater is one of the most beautiful and historic playhouses in Europe. A product of the Enlightenment, this small performing arts hall was built at the end of the 18th century, when national theaters were constructed in major cities throughout Europe. The Estates will be forever linked with the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who chose this stage to premiere not one, but two of his best-known operas: La Clemenza di Tito, in 1791; and a thrilling performance of Don Giovanni, on October 29, 1787, which was conducted by Mozart himself. The interior is usually accessible only to theater-goers but, if the doors are open, try to sneak a peek at the opulent blue-velvet interior which was featured in the movie Amadeus.View on Google Maps
