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!

While in Prague for a week vacation, I was intrigued with the history of the marionettes, and wanted to see one of the many advertised shows in Prague. I selected the Don Giovanni show, as it seems the most popular, and seeing as Mozart wrote...More

I went to see Don Giovanni recently, only knowing it would be performed by marionettes and, to be honest, not with high expectations. However, we were all so surprised at what an entertaining show it proved to be and the skill and timing of the...More

It looks like the reviewers are getting this location confused with the Don Giovanni Theater which is on the other side of town. This particular theater is closed and has been for some time. They no longer do any shows here. They still have the...More

Good show (Don Giovanni) which was done with a good degree of humour and self awareness. It was heavily truncated but still would have been better as one act rather than two (they must be rather limited by the length of the music / story...More

The puppet show is mastered and enjoyable; Mozart’s masterpieces were played back (some good quality sound - not the best -) Don Giovanni is a funny show!

We saw the Mozart's Magic Flute. The puppets and puppeteers are amazing and the scenery is beautiful. The theatre is very intimate and it is incredible to think that children's shows carried on there all through the communist era. It's is well worth a visit....More

See a performance at Mozart's work. The theater is old and the seats are not so comfortable. There is a small shop that you can buy marionettes.

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
