In the past years we were very lucky having different performances in this theater. Of course we had Don Giovanni too - and it was a good feeling that we are sitti9ng there where it was first performed. Go if you can.

Two nights ago, I (almost) saw but certainly experienced Mozart's singspiel "Die Zauberfloete" at the Estates Theatre. Why almost? The 18th-century construction of theatre loge boxes mean that only 2 of the 3 seats in the side loges give a view of the stage. I...More
