Hybernia Theatre

Do not miss The Best of Swan Lake by P. I. Tchaikovsky - the most beautiful parts of the famous ballet!

Performance covers the whole story of the original ballet performed by top dancers - Prague National Theatre soloists.

The Best of Swan Lake music to the ballet is from the record.

The Swan Lake by P. I. Tchaikovsky belongs to the most famous ballets of ever.

Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake was composed in 1875 and like the Nutcracker, Swan Lake was unsuccessful after its first year of performance. Conductors, dancers and audiences alike thought Tchaikovsky's music was too complicated and hard to dance to. Much is unknown about the original production of Swan Lake – no notes, techniques or instruction concerning the ballet were written down. Only little can be found in letters and memos. It wasn’t until after Tchaikovsky’s death that Swan Lake was revived. Much of the Swan Lake we know of today was a revision by the famous choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov in 1895.

Modern musical theatre in a former church in the city centre.

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.
