In Hybernia Theatre you can see the best of the famous ballets and operas performed by leading Czech artists.
Hybernia Theatre and its location have a rich history. In the 14th century, the emperor Charles IV built the St. Ambrosius monastery here which gradually fell under different orders, the Benedictines, Minorites, and finally in the 17th century the Irish Franciscans.
In late-18th century the monastery was shut down on the order of Emperor Joseph II and the church was desecrated. Still, the place was called „U Hybernu“ (Hybernia means Ireland in latin).
The former church served as a customs house, exhibition hall, until in 2006 its interior was transformed into a modern theatre hosting mainly musicals, but also ballet, opera performances and jazz concerts.
