Enjoy a unique puppet version of Don Giovanni by W. A. Mozart!

Marionette version of W. A. Mozart´s opera Don Giovanni has become the most successful piece of the Czech marionette theatres.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his Don Giovanni specially for Prague. This famous opera was premiered in 1787 at the Prague Estates Theatre, and conducted by Mozart himself.

Our performance is played in a unique Art Deco space of the National Marionette Theatre and is staged in the original Italian language, lasting about two hours. Recorded music is used.

The National Marionette Theatre presents the opera Don Giovanni in a unique version of the classic puppet theater, with stage marionettes in stylish costumes.

The performance celebrates Mozart's time and environment in the form of authentic 18th century.

The National Marionette Theatre in Prague is situated at the historical centre of the world’s puppetry, in a place, where was established the International Puppetry Organisation - UNion Internationale de la MArionnette - UNIMA, associated with UNESCO.
Since 1991, the National Marionette Theatre has staged more than 6.000 performances and 20 premieres of traditional puppet performances for both adults and children. Don Giovanni was performed more than 4500 times!
