Event details
 
Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The world-famous operatic adaptation of Beaumarchais’s “banned” theatre play originated in Vienna in 1786. Mozart chose the theme himself and asked the Italian poet Lorenzo da Ponte to write the libretto. Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) is inextricably linked with Prague. Although the opera’s world premiere took place in Vienna, it was only in Prague that it experienced its first real triumph, owing to which the impresario Bondini commissioned from Mozart an opera specially intended for Prague – Don Giovanni. There are few operas with such opulent and intricate action as Le nozze di Figaro. Its nature is aptly rendered by the secondary title of Beaumarchais’s eponymous play: “The Day of Madness”. In this opera about jealousy and love, Mozart masterfully portrays a gamut of characters major and minor, headed by the servant and joker Figaro, who together with his fiancée, the chamber-maid Susanna, is able to stand up to the arbitrariness and incorrigible woman-chasing of Count Almaviva.



The opera is staged in Italian original version and Czech and English surtitles are used in the performance.

The Estates Theatre today

 

The Estates Theatre is one of the most beautiful historical theatre buildings in Europe. It has been part of the National Theatre since 1920. The Opera, Drama and Ballet ensembles give repertory performances at the Estates Theatre.

 

History

 

The Estates Theatre is one of the most beautiful historic theatre buildings in Europe. Its construction was initiated by the enlightened aristocrat František Antonín Count Nostitz Rieneck, led by the desire to aggrandise his native city as well as the souls of its inhabitants. The construction lasted less than two years and the Theatre was opened in 1783. This project, extremely important for the Prague of the time, was in keeping with the zeitgeist of the late 18th century, a time when national theatres were being built at European courts, royal seats and cultural centres in the spirit of the Enlightenment idea that a generally accessible theatre is a moral institution demonstrating the cultural level of the nation.

The first, sporadic Czech-language performances took place in 1785. From 1812 onwards there were regular Sunday and holiday matinees. At that time, these performances became to a certain degree a political matter too. Thus arising in the difficult years following the failed revolution in 1848 was the idea of a Czech National Theatre.
