The narrative lacked internal logic and ended on a weird note, but the costumes were fun to look at and dramaturgy kept the energy on stage up. The singers were all quite strong, but there was no stand out performer/song.
Lovely concert with excellent musicians. Would highly recommend to others visiting Prague!
Thomas úžasný a úžasný band. Výběr dobrého místa i čas na akci.
Overall, a great evening out - friendly and very helpful ticket office staff, and good service from the venue's attendants. This has to be one of the most beautiful theatres in all of Europe, and it has to be seen to be fully appreciated. BUT Tosca (although very well sung, and with a fine orchestra in the pit) is a new production that will sit uneasily for those who enjoy something a little more traditional. It is a "concept" piece, where a Director, consumed by his own vanity, has attempted to make his ideas work on stage. They emphatically don't. You can hear the sound of a square peg being remorselessly pounded into a round hole. The start is a tiresome faff-about for about ten minutes, getting nowhere, and the dramatic finale is reduced to a hysterical travesty. How the audience didn't burst out laughing is anyone's guess. We do not speak Czech, but our party of four got the distinct impression that had our director appeared on stage, he would have been roundly booed, and if he had turned up in the foyer, he might well have been lynched. We felt sorry for the cast, who had to carry on with this travesty of one of Puccini's finest scores. Didn't anyone tell him that he got it all WRONG. I would love to read the critical comments in the media. Superb venue, unforgiveable tinkering about with a classic.
Musiciens virtuoses qui vivaient leur musique avec un sourire qui illumine encore plus l'événement et les notes !
A fabulous concert, great music, great musicians!
Celkově se mi akce zdála dost předražená. Akorát místo konání vybráno skvěle. Jedná návštěva stačila.
We were visiting Prague from Australia, and booked to see this performance as something unique to Prgaue. It was so professionally presented, full of surprises and lots of fun. The performers certainly knew their craft, and interacted with the audience in a very engaging way. Some elements were breathtaking, simply beautiful. Bravo!
This production was of the highest quality. Not knowing the opera ( The Love of Three Oranges) we were worried we would not enjoy it, especially if we could not understand the language. We need not have worried. The surtitles were in English and the opera itself is gloriously funny and accessible. And what a production. Brilliant costumes and sets, wonderful singing and the music from the orchestra just enhanced it all. Congratulations and thank you to everyone involved in creating this
Loved the music and the artist. I bought their cd.
Un grand classique est toujours un risque
Nice program and beautiful setting with wonderful acoustics.
Music good. Title of concert misleading. Includes Gershwin plus quite a few other composers.
Замечательный концерт, сопрано и орган
Overall, we are satisfied but the quality was not uniform.
Excellent performance in beautiful chapel
Nice music, most of them are my favorite
Vstupenky na koncert jsem zakoupila rodičům k narozeninám. Z vystoupení byli nadšení.
Les acteurs sont très bons et gentils,
Nous sommes montés sur scène ma compagne et moi et cela nous fait donc un magnifique souvenir.
Nous nous attendions cependant à quelque chose de plus « spectaculaire ».
Il faut simplement préparer son esprit à être dans l’originalité.
I would like to thank you for the amazing performance. Would like to attend more events, I'd be back for more in Prague. I want to say that the singers were brilliant and performance was just fascinating. Also loved the opera house, as a opera lover I visit every opera in every country, the Prague opera is one of the best. Thank you again.
The 20 person chorus was “swallowed up” by the immense venue and the power of the orchestra. 30 - 40 voices would have been more appropriate. Otherwise, the musicianship and the performance were terrific.
Un spectacle époustouflant, dynamique, moderne, déroutant. Un peu court (45 mn...) dommage....
Excellent musicians. Well balanced repertoire.
Très bon moment avec des artistes talentueux dans lieu magnifique. A faire
Exceptional performances in an imposing scenery! It was a wonderful experience to savor Vivaldi's melodies in the beautifully lit St. Nicholas church! Also soprano's voice was absolutely haunting! I loved it! It's definitely a good choice!
Great venue and location, pleasant music and great service. The food was OK.
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The orchestra were wonderful and the choice of pieces
superb. We would definitely cone and see them again.
Très beau concert avec une excellente soprano et ainsi que la violoniste soliste !
Programme varié et intéressant, un délicieux moment
Moment privilégié, hors du temps. Durée parfaite, son magnifique.
Magnifique concert dans un lieu unique
A unique night of music and dancing with great food, a wine master who never lets your cup run dry, and the chance to meet fellow tourists. Highly recommended for something a bit different just outside the Prague city centre.
It was a delight to sit in such a beautiful chapel and enjoy the wonderful music played by such expert performers.
How it was "made up" with advertisement and in the very touristic environment, we expected it to be a "touristic" event, with some mainstream classic excerpts.
The quality of the performance by the 4 members of the chamber orchestra, the soloist at the organ and especially the soprano singer was excellent and a most pleasant experience. Hearing these pieces in an almost intimate setting (we sat in the first row), having the "voice" right in front of us, was even touching. The fact that people gave applause to the soloist singer even though the musicians were still playing was not so nice but more important was, that everyone enjoyed the music. Thus, the concert was a very nice touch to our Prague visit and to open a nice evening.
Superbe concert, certes un "pot-pourri" plutôt destiné aux touristes mais avec des musiciens et un cadre d'exception !
Seule interrogation : lors de notre réservation, la salle apparaissait quasi-complète sur le site internet (peu de choix de places possible) alors qu'au final la salle était seulement à moitié pleine...
service et lieu agréable, très bien situé. Repas agréable aussi . Musique correct .
Nice to see that performed enjoyed to present their art :))
Very good and so much laaugh :))
We loved the ballet itself. However, I missed a complete orchestra and not pre recorded music.
Mis à part l'orgue le rendu de la soprano et du hautbois ne donnait pas le rendu auquel nous pensions
Chybělo obecné přivítání.
The concert was lovely. The music was wonderful. The venue was historic and interesting.
Excellente interprétation de la Symphonie du nouveau monde qui nous a communiqué de grandes émotions.
The event was excellent. I purchased the tickets online on via musica and it was an easy step. However, the system did not let me choose my seat. It gave me a random seat but I wanted to sit somewhere else. I talked with via musia and then with the Smetana Hall box office, but they said I cannot change my seat. And there were many empty seats. I bought the most expensive ticket but I could not sit on another available seat and I was upset about this.
Great event to add to your usual touristic activities. Good music always changes you and this concert too changes the way you look at the hundreds of years that surround you in the Prague.
Très sympa. plein d'humour. Bon spectacle.
Concert intéressant et agréable.
Je ne suis pas une mélomane avertie. Les voix étaient magnifiques de même que l'orgue, mais les pièces résonnaient moins pour moi.
Superb performance in gorgeous venue!! Excellent mix of songs.
While the performance was good, I thought in retrospect it was way overpriced, especially compared to the price of opera in Prauge, which is 2-3 times longer and obviously, many more performers. For an hour concert with 7 performers the price should have been in the area of US$15-20. An handout listing the names of each piece would also have been nice.
Music was great but tye chairs were making very irritating sounds all the time as people moved in their chairs. They should get chairs that dont make sounds.
Very enjoyable way to hear music in a beautiful setting. The church was meant for this type of music and the organist was exceptional.
I had a good time at the consert. If you like listening to clasic music and beautiful curch its a good time spent. I think it would be good if the musical pieces where a little more different to eachother. Maybe from different time periods, sakral and profan. The one that sang was amazing, good job! But at the curch benches, my butt really was sad. If you go, i rekomend sitting on a chair.
Wonderful concert. WE had bought medium price tickets. But we were seated at the last row of our price bracket, in front of us 3 rows were empty.
I was totally immersed in the music. Perfect performance.
krásný konzert, příjemné prostory
4 bons musiciens nous ont interprété les oeuvres les plus célèbres du répertoire classique : un très bon moment.
Vase koncerty nemaji chybu az na vyjimku, je z meho pohledu dnes neprijemne pozadovat od zakaznika vytisteni vstupenky. Dekuji za Vase akce i moznost zpetne vazby.
Très beau concert, les musiciens étaient très performants.
La prestation de ces musiciens était très bonne , mais occultée par une sonorisation trop forte, qui gâchait la musique ! Vraiment dommage de mal régler une sono pour un si bon niveau musical !
Good music. Beautiful venue. But we couldn’t see the 11 musicians from the pews. They are in front of the church but not elevated. We had to stand just to get a glimpse.
Very creative, good pantomime, nice performances, great slight of hand!
UN POCO BREVE EN CONCIERTO, EL EL PROGRAMA PONÍA QUE CANARÍADOS SOPRANOS Y SOLO UNA CANTÓ
Un peu désuet
Nice moment, great music and great musicians.
concert très bien, on ne voit pas trop bien les musiciens cachés par une barrière.
Une flûte enchantée revisitée de bonne facture. Des voix de belle qualité et des décors originaux. Orchestre impeccable.
Well, we were the only one on the concert which was weird but really cool. Food and music were really good
Wonderful space, the soprano was talented and charismatic. The musicians played professionally and well, though seemed a bit tired. The musical selections were odd — some excellent ones but they Queen pieces and a few of the other ones seemed bizarre additions . I know that this is a tourist venture but there’s no need to dumb it down.
This was a truly wonderful experience. It was a fabulous walking tour, so informative and got to see so many places. Our guide was just fantastic, she was so informative and full of knowledge and no questions went unanswered.
Professional performance and blissful event
Very bad performance. Horrible. Please don’t go.
Musicians were mervellous, The Mirror Chapel' acoustic was excellent. A very good concert.
Very professional musicians, organist and soprano.
A very enjoyable moment, with the discovery of a couple of Czech composers, JJ Benda and Smetana.
It is a shame that the musicians would look at their watch only 10 minutes into the concert, and joke amongst themselves in between plays, ignoring their public.
It felt quite insulting actually, and it is a shame because the venue is excellent.
I would recommend going to Café Mozart for an afternoon tea (without music), just to enjoy the venue.
Thank you for a most enjoyable evening ! The band was great, the food was superb, the crew was very friendly and Prague by night is beautiful.
I have a suggestion: at the time of "check-in" onboard, it would be much appreciated if the crew could ask people who travel alone (like me) if they would like to sit with other people. I found myself sitting completely on my own at the largest table, at the front of the vessel, and it was probably the best table of the whole boat. I did not dare ask tourists from the neighbouring table if they wanted to join (4) as I did not know whether I would be on my own for the whole trip or not. Then it was too late to ask.
The room was not what I expected although the ceiling was beautiful. The music was transforming, The artist very talented we love it.
Nous avons passés un excellent moment. Spectacle de qualité.Horaires respectés.
The music was excellent, but it was disappointing not to be able to see the musicians as they performed. One could have been listening to a recording. Because we could not see the musicians (they were up in the organ loft), there was no connection between the audience and the musicians. The atmosphere was detatched and impersonal. In addition, I had expected the program to include more better-known pieces of music, as is often the case at this kind of concert. Although I enjoyed the performance, I would not go again, nor would I recommend it to friends.
good music, good food and service, nice and comfortable boat and a very good atmosphere
Poor acoustics, especially for piano. Excellent musicianship.
Agharta band already bring new experience.
Professional musicians in an amazingly beautiful setting. Loved it! Lasted 65 minutes with a good variety of classical pieces.
It was a very joyfull concert, the singer and the instrumental cinquet were excellent.
We enjoyed the concert very much. The synagogue had amazing acoustics and the musicians were very good. We came with a young child so the length of the concert was great as well as the programme with very popular classic tunes
A very good concert; unlike most concerts I saw in Prague, this was not just a collection of classical pops. Good performers, good audience, good venue.
Excellente soirée...qui nous a enchantés.
C était parfait. Le lieu, la musique, la chanteuse..
Un vrai moment de plaisir
Concert magnifique dans un cadre superbe. Nous avons apprécié la qualité et la variété des pièces jouées lors de ce concert. Une excellente façon d'approcher la musique classique et moderne pour les neophytes que nous sommes. Un de nos meilleurs moments à Prague.
We had an excellent tour thanks to our guide Paria. She has lots of knowledge, and she really knows how to tell a story... thank you Paria, you are awsome! :)
Magnifique concert dans cette église superbe. Petit plus un plaid qui vous permet de profiter du concert au chaud.
Interesting concept, and unique for sure, but the production is a little amateur and could be a bit better
Excellent jazz players with own composed pieces.
Soirée très agréable bateau très correct.
Musique super. Nourriture classique mzmais bonne.
Nous avons passé une bonne soirée
La performance des artistes n est pas a critiquer mais je n ai jamais accroché au spectacle. Les effets sont beaux mais tout est répétitifs et manquent de rythme.
Je suis déçue parce que je ne m attendais pas à ça.
A nice evening of Black Light Theatre. It was a fun night, enjoyed the funny "sketches" and use of black light combined with actors.
Hudba vynikající repertoár skupiny dle mého gusta. Milá obsluha.
Amazing performance, it felt original and well executed but preserved the key classical elements. Musicians and singers were impeccable and the production was remarkable. Would highly recommend!
I really enjoyed the event and the aghaRTA-band very much. Nice playing and a great feeling!
Place is amazing. Musicians were good but the program lacked coherence, more Czech music would be great
Koncert byl úžasný! Mohl by být klidně delší než jen jednu hodinu ale jinak perfektní.
Jediné co rusilo celou atmosféru byli cizinci, které vpustili do sálu v teplákách a teniskách. Proste v tom čem zrovna šli očividně okolo.
Je mi líto, ze na takovéto akce není větší důraz kladen na vhodné odění. Vše by pak působilo mnohem lépe.
Gorgeous venue, excellent conductor and musicians - that said I'm a classical novice but I really enjoyed it and the location definitely added something extra
Being a frequent opera fan all over the world, this performance could very well be compared to Wien Staatsoper. Especially Michal Lehotský inspired the other singers to do their best, since he was Kalef and not just sang the part of Kalef. The "Band" played marvellously. It was an uplifting experience, thank you!
The concert was absolutely a joy!! I love it.
a great evening .
continu like this
Amazing amazing amazing everything from the band to the food to the venue and the staff! Worth every penny only wished it was longer, a MUST no matter how short a stay in Prague!
This was a great way to tour the city on our first evening in town. The guide was an excellent story teller. Very informative and great fun.
To say nothing of the significance of “Don Giovanni” at the Estates Theatre, the stage of that evening itself created a special atmosphere. The performance was fabulous with modern interpretation. I appreciated the stage managing, the set design and costume of black and white. It was a fresh experience of a totally different air of “Don Giovanni”.
We really enjoyed listening to the band and the guitar work was fantastic.
J'ai aimé beaucoup l'événement.
C'est très sympa et changeant de dîner sur de la musique classique et la vue sur l'horloge est admirable. MAIS le repas laisse vraiment à désirer notamment le plat de poisson froid trop cuit et sec(sans sauce) et le dessert un peu rassi
As a foreigner it is a special feeling to see the Smetana's opera in Prague. The atmosphere of "Bohemia" may give the play the life. The performance was light, free and witting .
Delicious food, attentive friendly waiters and an absolutely brilliant jazz quartet.
Krásný koncert barokní hudby. Úžasný zážitek. Děkuji.
jazz band were very proficient
Goid selection of music. Soloist was outstanding but the chamber group more ragged. The cellist was too dominant.
Beautiful setting. Excellent standard of musicians. Heated seats in pews and blankets provided. Thoroughly enjoyable and excellent value for money.
The acoustics in St. Nicholas Church are wonderful and the musicians were fantastic. The heated pews and blankets were a nice touch.
Nice atmosphere and show.
IT WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE. IT MADE BEAUTIFUL MEMORY FOR ME IN PRAGUE.
skvěle provedený koncert včetně výběru skladeb
Le concert était magnifiquement interprété par l'orchestre Felix Mendelssohn Young Orchestra d'Hambourg. Une très belle découverte, et une très belle programmation aussi. Les discours en prologue (allemand puis tchèque) étaient un peu longs.
Liked the venue liked the music and jazz
Just right. Not too long or too short. The selections were familiar enough for the not-so-musically-inclined, but sophisticated enough for the afficionado. The venue was beautiful. It was a beautiful evening of entertainment.
Event cancelled so was not able to attend. Still awaiting refund.
Krásný nápad, hezké prostředí, výborné jídlo.
Jen hudba příliš neoslovila, bicí často přehlušovalo všechno... :-(
Adam was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable, and knew how to keep your interest. I highly recommend him as a guide.
I think you need to be a bit more descriptive about what the trip entails, especially around the walking and the train. It might even be better to actually meet at the train station. I must admit I was expecting a coach journey.
Beautiful venue, excellent lead performers. Unspectacular decor.
Musiciens de bonne facture mettant une ambiance joyeuse avec un repas délicieux.... Le bateau nous a fait découvrir en parallèle les méandres de la Vlatna.... à travers aussi une écluse.
Nous avons passé une excellente soirée !
every driver gives us excellent service
The performances from all of the performers were of good quality. The interaction between Violeta and Alfredo lacked sincerity at times. However, overall the singing was good The gentleman playing Germont sang with real quality as did Violeta.
The concert was disappointing. First of all, Vivaldi should have been played with minimum double or triple number of musicians, instead of 6. For the high price of the tickets it could have been solved. The sounds were often false, maybe because of the extreme cold air in the church. The concert reminded me to an amateur event in a school, while the musicians were officially professionals. Pachelbel was played almost in double speed, showing if the artist would like to go home as soon as possible.
Ma note serait plutôt "bon" ,ce n'était pas médiocre , ni très bon,la cantatrice a une très belle voix et chante différents registres avec une belle puissance,elle permet de remonter le niveau de mon appréciation
Entendre quelques uns de ces airs favoris superbement interprétés ,quel plaisir ,encore toutes mes félicitations aux artistes
Un opéra de grande qualité , des chanteurs musiciens et danseurs tres professionnels;
The concert was nice.
Very good evening in an intimate place! I was just waiting for the 3rd sister to sing but she never came. I recommend.
Great music performed by classical guitarists who kept a very high level
Velké nasazení, pěkné provedení.
A stunning venue for a really enjoyable hour of well known classical music, played by four skilled musicians. They put up a good performance, despite the fact that there were only 13 people in the audience. I would have liked a welcome by one of the performers at the start of the concert.
The ceiling of the Smetana Hall felt and the concert had been cancelled. ☹️We were very disappointed. I m sure it would have been an exceptionnal event with such an fantastic artist. 😬
As a solo female traveller who also loves opera , I found this an amazing experience, the lead performers were outstanding and the venue was intimate and beautiful .
Very good performance!
Great gig, cosy venue, friendly bar staff
Fantastic performance in an intimate but perfect venue by highly talented duo. Ticket office (Via Musica) was tricky to find and we were initially given tickets for a completely different date and event. However, everything got sorted out and we had a great evening.
Un repas excellent, dans un cadre magnifique, avec un service efficace et discret, et un quatuor de cordes sublime...une soirée inoubliable !
Velice vydařený koncert, hra i výběr skladeb byl výborný, oba umělci vytvořili příjemnou atmosféru.
Na webovych strankach i na reklamnim porospektu mi chybelo umelecke obsazeni. Pri objednavani vstupenek pres portal byl minimalni vyber volnych mist, ackoliv sal byl pri predstaveni malo obsazeny. Pro lepsi esteticky dojem by bylo vhodne odhrnout oponu pred varhanami na jevisti. Nakonec ale mile prekvapeni, koncert byl mily a bezprostredni.
a little too slapstick for me but enjoyable :) some of them felt a little dated (e.g. women seemed to be mostly just love interests!)
Excellent tour with Petra, she was very knowledgable and gave us information that we didn’t know and took us to places that we wouldn’t have found without her.
Best show in town February 2019
The venue was well chosen for the music genre. I consider the selection as average, some of the songs didn't catch me, others were captivating. The artists-performers were good, especially singer-soprano and organ player.
However two main issues with the whole performance were following - the seating was faced towards the main part of the church, which is understandable (you won't rebuild it. But at least a notification would be recommendable. The other spectators were very confused, that they should face empty space, when performers are behind them. Plus I would like to mention that to turn on some chairs made loud screeching sound, the chairs were really old!
Second issue I had was with heating. There was a line in the event description saying the venue is heated. This was provided by heat lamps, but after you turn them off in 20-30 minutes the cold is back. So either turn them on way before, or try to find a way to let them on during the show, or just change the description!
My experience was affected by other spectators who started to be restless after a while (really taking your 2 small children to a concert of classical music is a great idea) but this was mainly due to the fact, that they couldn't see the performers without turning around.
A wonderful surprise concert! The musicians were wonderful, played with such passion and emotion. The soloist was incredible his playing was truly magical. I was transported to another place. Bravo to all of the musicians. Thank you for a very special evening concert.
Beautiful music played by excellent musicians.
Très belle soirée. Talent exceptionnel, chaleur et proximité.
Beautiful traditional staging and great singing,clear surtitles in English.
Un très bon moment et un spectacle très sympa ! Le scénario est original, un peu décousu à mon goût permet de parfaitement comprendre ce qu'est le théâtre noir. Une expérience à découvrir à Prague
D'excellents musiciens et des standards de jazz que nous ne connaissions pas, car notre style c'est plutôt le swing. Bref, une bonne soirée "découverte" entre amis.
Belle sélection tant musicale que chorégraphique, intemporelle effectivement.
It was my first visit to Prague and one of the highlights of my trip was the Heart of Pearls lunchtime concert at the Lubkowicz Palace. The performance was varied with a lovely choice of well known and lesser known pieces beautifully played by the pianist, flautist and violinist.
I had lunch in the cafe, spent some time shopping in the souvenir shop before the concert. I also spent an hour in the museum.
The information displayed is clear and very informative.
I would highly recommend this beautiful event as part of a cultural trip to Prague.
Perfect early evening concert in a beautiful building.
Very good performance, would highly recommend a visit here
Excellent club, great vibe. High standard Jazz music!!
Outstanding performance. Despite we took place in the first gallerie, we cpuld see and hear perfectly. Excellent management of the event.
fantastic jazz band
That was an amazing concert with perfect program. The musicians outperformed our expectation. We were impressed. It was an unforgetable event.
Nice and interesting
Wish it had more content considering the price. Why was it so empty?
Excelent location, food and good music
The performance was superb. We really enjoyed every minute. The venue was also amazing and acoustics were great given such an historic venue. The musicians were world class. Thank you for such a wonderful evening.
Firstly, I wanted to mention that the Cathedral is beautiful and it proved to be an excellent setting for the concert and the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Prague were absolutely fantastic. The music was impeccable and the environment made the occasion even more special.
Unfortunately, the evening was somewhat of a disappointment by people on their phones both texting/on the internet, taking photos and in one instance, a phone ringing during a song which made it extremely difficult to enjoy.
I understand that there is a sign on the door as we walk in, which says no cameras or phones, however I believe this was of little use. The woman next to me was on her phone throughout the concert and I counted six other people in front of me filming at one time or another. My advice would be to perhaps have more than one sign for people to see, in case they miss the first one. They could also ask the person who checks tickets to mention to people as they come in or even spend two minutes at the beginning of the performance to make an announcement and kindly ask people to refrain from spoiling the concert for other people.
It might seem a little extreme, but also having a small locker area for people to physically leave their phones would be the most effective solution but I appreciate that this may not be realistic.
Overall, the event itself was fantastic but they need to be more strict with their rules.
The ballet was just wonderful. Well worth seeing.
Une expérience musicale de qualité dans un lieu et une atmosphère inoubliables !!!
Fantastic acoustics, marvellous venue, outstanding performance from the soprano and quartet.
Superb ensemble. Passionate performances in an incredibly beautiful, poignant setting.
Soloist soared to the highest notes effortlessly, rendering the songs with charm and wit.an utterly delightful evening, not to be missed.
The concert was amazing, origina and very well performed. Neveetheless, in such an intimate place, it eould have been nice if the players said simething during the concert- about them self or about the music they were playing.
An unbelievably poignant and thought provoking show. We had gone in hoping for an experience and we truly got it! The effects were spectacular, the location lovely and it was real highlight of our trip - would definitely recommend.
My husband and I loved this special performance and did not want the concert to end, we could easily have sat there a further hour. The musicians were outstanding and the choice of program excellent - I have been humming the music ever since! :-) We liked the insertion of one or two light-hearted musical pieces as well, it was all done very professionally and the musicians were obviously enjoying themselves and had a great musical rapport. The event started on time and no one in the audience had a mobile phone ringing to interrupt the lovely playing. We would love to attend further concerts if we come to Prague again but we live all year normally in Spain. We certainly will recommend your company. We wished that the tickets could have been sent via a link to my mobile phone beforehand, this is my only complaint as we were in a place without a printer (on holiday in a hotel) which meant that we had a walk of over 1 hour each way to get into the old part of Prague and attempt to fin the Via Musica shop in a city we are unfamiliar with, and in horrendous Christmas/New Year crowds. It was an adventure, but we were rather stressed trying to get the tickets and not knowing if the shop would be open because it was so close to the holidays and we figured that the shop would close earlier than normal due to the Public Holiday the following day. Other than that, it was well worth it and we are very happy we saw the show. My husband said it was 'The highlight of our whole holiday in Prague". :-)
The event was not as good as expected. The organist and soloist were brilliant but the string quartet did not play well and especially did not stop to tune a violin which was completely off and ruined the interpretation of Smetana and Vivaldi. It felt like the quartet did not care at all about the public.
The first day we missed the tour as we were unable to spot the guide. There were many people with red jackets and we had to come back the second day.
The guide on our tour gave us a good insight to the spots inside the castle however we felt that the tour was short and ended abruptly. We could not visit inside the castle or the Church. Overall, it was decent walking tour.
This concert was the highlight of our European vacation. The program was wonderful; a perfect way to spend New Year's Eve.
Both myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Mirror Chapel was superb. A wonderful setting. The music was high quality and we both thought it was fantastic. We would definitely go again. Thank you.
Excellent musicians and great music.
Úžasné místo a velmi profesionální projev jak orchestru, tak sólistky M. Šrůmové vytvořily z tohoto koncertu nezapomenutelný zážitek. Díky za to.
Vstupenky jsem kupoval jako dárek pod stromeček hlavně pro mojí ženu. Samozřejmě jsem se zúčastnil též. Oba jsme byli moc nadšení provedením všech skladeb. A navíc moje žena prohlásila, že se konečně v sedmdesáti letech dostala do Rudolfina.
Moje žena má ještě jedno přání. Dostat se na zahajovací koncert letošního Pražského jara. Je to datum které se vztahuje k narození nejstaršího syna, který bohužel tragicky zahynul v pouhých 34 letech. Pokoušel jsem se vstupenku sehnat, ale nepodařilo se mi to. V den, kdy byly vstupenky dány do prodeje, jsem se z rozhlasového vysílání dozvěděl, že vstupenky byly vyprodány do pěti minut.
Very good concert
Belle prestation des Chanteurs mais trop courte et des musiciens nous restons sur notre « faim » , la salle est magnifique mais le service à table est déplorable et mérite la note de faible, les plats servis sont simples mais bons :
Soupe aux petits pois
Bas morceaux de bœuf cuisiné en goulache
une bouteille de vin 75 cl pour 8 personnes et si vous demander un autre verre on enlève le verre vide et vous ne le revoyez pas.
Stunning church. Music was good too.
Excellent orchestre et soprano!
Mention spéciale pour le premier violon.
Nous avons passé un merveilleux moment
Enjoyable classical music in a charming setting.
It was an outstanding performance for my husband and I, in our new city. The performer was absolutely amazing. However, the event was catered and the food ran out if you were not at the front of the line and you also had to stand and eat quickly after waiting in line.
The concert itself was nice.
awesome performance. although, please tell the singer to do some exercise to keep the output air more steady (i.e. to vibrate only intentionally, and when needed - as embellishment only - since it's baroque/classical music)
A very good performance in a lovely theatre. Made easier with subtitles on a small screen above the stage.
A very good website, easy to navigate and well laid out. Ticketing was seamless via mobile phone and staff excellent. Arrived just in time with no problems despite full house.
A very positive booking experience. No access to printer as we were visiting but email booking confirmation was handled very well.
A really enjoyable event, wonderful music and singers.
A real joy during our 4 days in Prague. A wonderful city.
A very enjoyable concert!
Nous avons assisté au spectacle de la compagnie Hilt "fantome". C'était la première fois que nous assistions à ce type de spectacle. Très chouette, belle expérience originale que l'on vous recommande lors de votre passage à Prague. Spectacle seulement son et lumière avec danse et théâtralisation donc... pas de problème de langue.
La salle est petite (un peu moins de 100 places) donc, mieux vaut réserver avant de partir.
Nous vous le conseillons!
Paul was an amazing and funny tour guide
The band was extremely tight....the standard of musicianship excellent. I enjoyed the venue, great acoustics and table service throughout.
Thoroughly recommend it
Program was well choosen. Clementinum was the right location for a christmas concert. The orchestra and vocalist was skilful and showed no weak spots.
So altogeather a perfect x-mas concert
Excellent value with friendly staff, musicians and dancers. Drinks are flowing, food is tasty and the performers put on a good show. This is not a sophisticated, nor very authentic traditional show, but the crew are very good at providing good cheers all along. Be certain to check where the venue is before heading out, as it is out of the center.
Great production, with an excellent cast (Renato and Oscar being especially memorable).
very good entertainment and also good food.
I have been surprised that without beverage package, we only have right to a welcome glass, i thought there was a minima an another drink or a bottle of water. this should be clarified at the moment of ordering tickets.
Players were very good and the venue was beautiful. It was a little confusing not to have a host of some kind introduce and begin the performance, or explain why the players moved from the chapel and up to the balcony for certain songs, and then back down. The audience was the most annoying part - holding up their phones and taking photos (some with flash) and videos throughout the concert. Very, very distracting and almost ruined our enjoyment of the concert completely. The concert staff should tell people no cell phone use during the songs. Also, the church is freezing (no heat), so definitely take one of the blankets offered by staff before the show.
The musicians were great, but I felt it was overpriced for what you get, because the food was not. The main course was pretty good but nothing else.
My dearest, everything was perfect. We truly loved it. hank you so much. Best regards, Luis Menendez
We absolutely loved this concert. Very talented musicians. The performance was spectacular.
Orchestre, chanteurs, choeur, ballet...tout était d'excellente qualité.
Et la musique de Dvorak...émouvante
4 bons danseurs sur le total.
prestation très moyenne
Seating needs to be updated. All the rows are on the same height and it is hard to see when the person is directly in front of you.
Was expecting more Christmas carols
Many information, good experience, really nice. Recommend guide tour, the place is too big to go without somebody who can explain facts and show some secrets places. The guy was very friendly and lot of knowledge.
Humour et imagination!
Moment de pur bonheur à partager en famille
Obecní dům je místo žijící historií a kulturou. Tím spíš mě mrzí, když dochází k degradaci hudby i genia loci tím, že diváci (především turisté v džínách) přicházejí po začátku a řádně vždy bouchnou dveřmi případně sedačkou (to je uvaděči pustí uprostřed hudební produkce? Nemohou počkat na potlesk?), diváci tleskají mezi větami a muzikanti, oblečení ve vytahanych opraných kosilich, se tváři, jako kdyby to chtěli mít co nejdřív za sebou. Hudební produkce na okresním městě je slavnostnejsim hudebbmim zážitkem. Úroveň i pozornost diváků se zvedla o něco po nástupu sólistky ale celkový zážitek byl zklamání.
Les morceaux annoncés n'ont pas été respectées.
L'atmosphère du restaurant était très "touriste". Mais le repas état correct.
Des clients étaient en t shirt et buvaient de la bière à la bouteille. La majorité du public n'avait fait aucun effort vestimentaire.
Ce laisser aller, auquel vous ne pouvez rien est désolant et témoigne d'un manque de respect pour les musiciens qui doivent avoir moins envie de faire encore mieux.
Beau concert. Veillez à être présents tôt pour vous installer dans les premiers bancs en placement libre car à distance l’accoustique est mauvaise ( l’église est vaste et le chœur avec sa coupole semble absorber les sons en hauteur) Nous n’avons pu bénéficier vraiment de la puissance des chœurs, devant vraiment tendre l’oreille pour les solos du ténor.
Concert excellent avec musiciens de qualité et ce fût un réel plaisir auditif de 2heures au bout desquels les musiciens se sont éclipsés alors que le repas n’était pas terminé. Ils avaient chaud sous leur accoutrement enfilé à la hâte et leur perruque mal mise et on peut les comprendre d’autant que l’on peut se demander quel cachet ils touchent réellement eux!
Par contre sur le plan gustatif: A FUIR!!!!! ce repas a 85 euros par personne, boissons et service non compris a été bien décevant! UNE ARNAQUE À TOURISTES!! Une terrine de saumon assortie d’une mousse au caviar qui n’était qu’un godet de mousse de la taille d’un dé à coudre recouvert d’oeufs de lumpe, un vol au vent de ragoût à l’asperge verte qui s’est révélé n’être qu’une coque de pâte feuilletée sèche de supermarché ne contenant que des morceaux d’asperge verte entassées sans la moindre sauce ou crème! Un potage aux truffes qui n’était qu’un bouillon clair dans lequel flottaient 3 oignons grelots, le plat de résistance: saumon et épinards était quant à lui tout à fait correct, et le dessert.... alors là!!! La cerise sans le gâteau!! Une minable assiette pour 2 contenant 8 minuscules biscuits secs que l’on achète pour rien dans les magasins locaux! Dans un CAFÉ MOZART du GRAND HÔTEL PRAHA réputé pour ses pâtisseries c’etait Le comble de la mesquinerie!!!
Ne vous faites surtout pas avoir de la sorte pour le NOUVEL AN!! Les concerts auxquels j’ai assisté grâce à cette billetterie étaient étaient tous très bien, et sans regret, mais ce repas concert est une honte pour un tel tarif dans une ville où pour 20 euros pour 2 on mange d’excellents plats typiques dans des brasseries locales mieux choisies.
Effets visuels intéressants; quelques saynètes un peu simplistes; 2 très bien, celle du rêve dans la mer et la chevauchée...
Concert de qualité! Belle exécution des œuvres,
(Les trombones manquaient un peu de vigueur sur la symphonie)
Recommandé vivement! concert de qualité porté par la voix magnifique d’une jeune soprano aussi jolie que talentueuse!
Not a usual performance. Interesting playing with colours and lights. Worth to see it in a casual environment. Well done. Fair price for an hourly event.
Eglise non chauffée.
Programme musical promptement exécuté...dommage...les musiciens avaient l'air pressé de partir.
Soprano...problème de justesse...
Concert piège à touristes.
You have to know the argument of Don Giovanni before going to see the play because the opera is entirely in Italian and it is not subtitled so that at some point it can be something heavy. The ending, with one of the puppeteers coming on stage, is brilliant.
Amazing performance. Tasty food. It was like a dream for me .
Très belle prestation
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Nutcracker in the intimate and charming theatre. I am a former principal ballerina from the US and I feel the production was enjoyable and well executed. The choreographer made excellent use of the space. Rose Barile
The event was very amusing. Good performers I don't have other experience with opera but my wife and me really enjoyed it. The food was ok. Not something to remember.
Beautiful chapel, excellent musicians, very emotional and inspiring music pieces. All this at a reasonable price.
The dancers choreography was off. The lead ballerina was very good.
Première fois pour moi et je peux dire que j'ai été comblé. Le cadre est somptueux et les musiciens ainsi que la soprano sont impressionnants.
Great venue, solid performance.
Un moment authentique avec des musiciens et chanteurs de qualité. Grand moment
First time visiting the black theater and it was a great experience.
Vánoční koncert předčil všechna naše očekávání. Byla to naprostá bomba !!!! Ještě jednou díky všem účinkujícím za nádherný zážitek.manželé Koucký
The opera was fantastic - we loved every moment of the Event!
Great by all performers.
The concert was really good, we enjoyed it so much.
Beautiful costumes, incredible voices and an amazing orchestra
Very much enjoyed the evening
The instrumentalists were excellent.
The singers really got going when singing Czech music in the final part.
Bon choix de morceaux, bon musiciens.
A wonderful concert. Amazed they could perform in such low temperatures!
It was a great night! Recommend ++++
We had such great fun and they involved so much of the audience which made our night so much more fun. The food was delicious. Unlimited drinks they were very good at keeping very one topped up. No one got roudy at all. A great atmosphere. The music and show was great.
Fantastic meal with intimate atmosphere. The performers were spectacular, so entertaining.
My wife and I had the most amazing experience ever at this event! We were in awe of the architecture and the sextet of strings produced the most delicate beautiful music of mozarts works! The three course dinner was beautiful! We cannot fault this event for beauty, class and emotion created. This is something you must treat yourself to if in Prague in December, it was magical. Thank you.
Beautiful Spanish synagogue! Excellent consert with a marvelous soprano. Highly recommend it!
Jméno pana Wagnera je zárukou jedinečného zážitku. Děkuji.
Morceaux bien choisis et bien joués.
Wonderful venue for the concert. The singer was particularly good.
Church was very, very cold - seat warmer was nice, but it was still very cold. Was expecting more familiar Christmas music. Beautiful church and great talent.
Carmen was sung brilliantlyand acted with such passion. It was superb.
In Prague for few days with my mum for a Xmas treat, came across this concert by accident and so pleased we went. It was the perfect length of just over an hour of well known classical pieces , played extremely well by a group of just 7 musicians. They really looked like they were enjoying themselves which added to our enjoyment of the performance. Acoustics of the art nouveau room was wonderful , but note this isn’t the main part of the building but downstairs next to the American bar ( lovely bar staff in there too!) it was a shame that some of the audience felt the need to either film parts on there phone or gaze at social media during the performance as I thought this was disrespectful. ! Put phone away and emerse yourself in the concert!
Beautiful venue. Excellent talent. Just overpriced. 2 for 1 price would have been more fair.
C’était le spectacle AVE MARIA du 07/12/2018 et non MAGNIFICAT. Le tout avait été changé avec l’accord de l’Archevêché.
Ce fut un vrai plaisir de voir ce spectacle dans cette magnifique église.
Nice experience within a magical place. The first violinist was amazing, some errors was made on the organ solo, but the overall was very good representation.
Our experience with ticketing and the performance was flawless. This experience was one of those few experiences that goes as planned and expected. No surprises. Performances were easy to review on line. Purchasing tickets was easy and straight forward. The actual performance was very good. The intermission of 20 minutes was appropriate. Concessions were reasonably priced. Not to say there wasn't a line for concessions but not any longer than what you might expect. I'd use Prague Ticket Office (Via Musica) again. Personally, I would like to see an appropriate dress code enacted and enforced for performances such as this. There was a range of dress level.
Concert intimiste avec peu de musiciens..4 au total.
The Smetana concert hall is stunning. To be able to hear the Prague Sympony Orchestra perform the compositions of Czech's premier composers in this Art Nouveau venue was unforgettable.
Nous avons été enchantées du ballet et de la performance des danseurs
Très beau spectacle, la chorale d'enfant rehaussait l’événement. De notre siège on a eu de la difficulté à bien apprécier les choristes. Il faisait un peu chaud dans la salle. Un choix d'air de Noel populaire aurait été apprécier.
Very entertaining evening. Amazing musicians who played well known classics
Really interesting walk and guided tour visiting old parts of the city. Exploring the old cellars in the city and under the streets was fascinating. The guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It was great to be able to read the design of the city and see how it evolved.
We certainly enjoyed the show. Well performed and wonderful scenes.
Per Oivind Johansen
výborné, nádherné, super :-)
velmi silný zážitek
The musicians, the acoustics and the venue were all very good. My rating is based on my expectation that this “Christmas Gala Concert” would be entirely Christmas music. About 15 minutes were Christmas music, but another 50 minutes were Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons.” While the performance was generally enjoyable, despite the audience being unfamiliar with the work and clapping at the wrong time more than once, I really expected to hear Christmas music. The title of this performance needs to be revised to add the Vivaldi content. Admittedly I should have investigated the program content, but I believe the program title should be a complete description.
Très bon concert. Il est juste dommage que Nous n'entendions pas bien et ne voyions pas la Soprano.
Lovely being In such a beautiful venue and we enjoyed the experience but the acoustics were not good...the sound/volume from the orchestra wasn’t loud enough to be stirring. Accomplished players and solo singer but the event lacked vim.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.
I found this event listed two days before leaving for Prague!
We are so very happy …beautiful music and delightful venue!
The soprano showed a joy that was inspirational
Très belle prestation avec une mise en scène de grande qualité.
Absolutely fantastic! We loved it.
The setting in the upstairs dining room was lovely, with a beautiful view of the square. The food was excellent. The music was just magic and filled us with wonderful feelings. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience. I was afraid it might be a touristy rip-off, but the price was very reasonable for what was offered, and I will definitely recommend this.
Petra was our Guide. She is so smart and is so happy to share her knowledge of life, arts, Prague, Czech, and so much more! She made out trip to to Kutna Hora extremely enjoyable and rewarding. It was the perfect amount of time for a tour and it felt like a complete experience. If this tour was not on the last day of our vacation, we would have signed up for more!
Thank you for a great experience!
good solist dancers
average for the rest of the dancers
Magical music; wonderful musicians and beautiful smiley soprano
The venue is absolutely stunning with so many beautiful features to focus on.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the concert which was simply amazing. We would love to visit again. Thank you.
A wonderful concert in a beautiful hall. Everything ran to time and was most professional. I loved the pieces that were played. There was a good range of emotion. The standard was very high. I would certainly recommend.
The event idea is good but the only dancer really worth the price was the female soloist playing Odette. Everyone else was really under the average and way below the price of the ticket.
le lieu est superbe très baroque, les pièces de Vivaldi étaient très bien joués il manquait a mon sens un peu plus de musicalité et d'émotion, le cote technique rien a redire
Enjoyed the chamber orchestra very much. Was a bit frustrated with people clapping at inappropriate times and some general noise from the audience, but the musicians took it all in stride. They also seemed to truly enjoy playing together.
Acoustics were amazing.
Overall great experience, the performance was spectacular, sound was good. There were signs that clearly indicated "No Recording" but a few audiences were constantly recording and taking photos, even stood up to take photos, and there was no one enforcing the rules, which spoiled the experience a bit.
Nice Music and good food
Mise en scène intéressante mi-traditionnelle, mi-contemporaine. Les chanteurs lyriques avaient de belles voix, de beaux costumes et de belles gestuelles. Orchestre impeccable. Excellentes prestations des danseuses et danseurs, là encore de beaux costumes. Très beaux décors. Le sous titrage en anglais, langue plus synthétique que le tchèque, permettait aux spectateurs étrangers de comprendre l'histoire et d'écouter le chant.
Julian and Emil were magic. We savored every note as the musical tapestry unfolded over the course of the evening. Talking with Julian between sets was such a pleasure, he’s one cool cat!
This was a thoroughly enjoyable show and it has inspired us to go and watch the full performance. The performers had great skill and retold the story beautifully. Highly recommended. This has been the highlight of my partner’s birthday weekend.
We thoroughly enjoyed. The music was perfect and the opera singer was an added bonus.
Excellent entertainment, delicious food, friendly & efficient service. We had a good view of the musicians and they played a good range of musical items.
Fabulous venue great acoustics. Ideal for a snapshot of different genres of music without sitting through an entire opera.
A varied yet thematic programme played beautifully by the orchestra and soloists.
Very good introduction to the local composers (Dvorak and Smetana) and a varied choice of known and less known pieces. Very good performance.
Think the venue amazing. The standard of the string quartet, singer and organist were amazing too! The only thing I would choose is a slightly less popular mix of music. However I understand if this draws a variety of people in.
Family friendly show.
Very well informed and amiable guide! Good introduction to the Jewish history and a value for money tour.
Had a wonderful evening in Prague. Everything was as stated. Ticket office site easy to navigate. Staff at the Mozart Cafe where very professional. The food was excellent. And the jazz singer and sax player very good. Would defiantly recommend this event.
Excellent performance and sound
This was so disappointing, following an excellent concert the night before at the Klementinum. The soprano was beyond superb, the double bassist was mesmerising and the female violinist produced a wonderful sound. However, it seemed obvious that the violinist didn't want to be there and was just 'going through the motions'. No acknowledgement whatsoever of the audience and she didn't even maintain eye contact when receiving applause at the end. The concert was poorly attended and there was no atmosphere. Such a shame. I would have preferred the strings to be centre stage rather than just supporting the trumpet or soprano.
Absolutely wonderful performance by 6 young players who had a wonderful connection with each other. The standard was excellent and the rapport between musicians was a joy to see. Full of smiles and nods. It was a privilege to be part of the evening and to see them up close. Just wonderful. I would really recommend this venue and this concert.
This is our second time visiting Prague and we were upset we missed the ballet last year. This year we were happy to make Romeo and Juliet. It was beautiful!
Excellent string quartet! Lovely singer.
It was very entertaining, although some of the jokes belong to pre-1986 era for sure.
Time passed pleasantly and quickly.
Too pricey for the quality offered
Great concert. But why were so many people allowed to enter the auditorium, not only in jeans, but also with their coats? I've only lived in Prague for thirty years so perhaps I don't understand everything about life in Prague but my opinion is that Prague people just don't do that and there is no reason that I can see to tolerate this lack of respect for their neighbours and the artists. Not sure why this is in English but that's not a problem.
This was a fantastic concert. Very talented pianist and flutist. Thoroughly enjoyed and would go again.
My advise would be to book the Gold seats .... they are only a little more expensive and the seats more comfortable.
Great show. Imaginative and fun.
The simple scenary was very effective at conveying the mood in each scene and the quality of the vocals and the orchestra was excellent. However the male lead was a little hard to hear at times and was a bit overwhelmed by the very strong soprano. Also some guests felt a little uncomfortable with the nudity in scene 2 of act 2 and asked whether it was needed.
Un peu court moins d une heure mais un 1er experience agréable.
It was nice and fun!
The tour guide was very informative and brought us all around the city to show us the various locations of importance in regard to WWII and Anthropoid. The tour was very interesting and I would recommend it to those who have an interest in anything WWII related. We had a nice small group of 6 so it was easier to follow what the tour guide was saying.
The venue felt like a run down movie theater, the theater seats and walls were dirty, the dancers were dancing out of sync, and the sets were also 'run-down'.
The musicians were simply awesome . I am a jazz musician and enjoyed every moment of this gig. I enjoyed the jazz standards and the original compositions as well. Great solos, amazing sound, groove, very interesting phrasing, fresh ideas, interactivity among the 4 musicians and excellent musicianship ! Bravo !!!
blues / rock music in a tiny old cellar was at top ! good and efficient service - cocktails and food was perfect
Stunning performance, booked as a 50th birthday treat for my sister and we both thoroughly enjoyed the concert.
I came to Prague for the Nemanja RADULOVIC concert. I have already seen this musician several times that I find exceptional. It was a concert again unforgettable!
The event was fantastic!
I went to Prague for this event, and it worth! I really enjoy it, and hope see them next year in Prague again.
Bon spectacle. Très amusant et une excellente façon d’initier les enfants.
Un orchestre symphonique très bien dirigé par son chef. Un ensemble de musiciens qui excelle à exprimer toutes les nuances et à lier leur jeu les uns aux autres. Les surimpressions instrumentales sont saisissante. Un bel hommage à l'oeuvre de Smetana.
Our guide was really knowledgeable and passionate about the tour. Really detailed history of the castle and the country! Instructions to find the guide need updating - we had to call to find he was by the red line bus but as soon as that was sorted we had a great time.
Un concert d'un très bon niveau (notamment la soprano) rendu encore meilleur par la beauté du lieu et sa très bonne acoustique .
Par contre, et de façon générale, je suis moins enthousiaste concernant l'accueil de la population de Prague (commerçants, restaurateurs, hoteliers...) qui se révèlent majoritairement exécrables avec les touristes !
Outstanding performances, especially the soprano.
Superb variety in a beautiful setting. Quality of performance was very high, a memorable evening.
Excellent was the athmosphere in the wonderful church, also the violin solist (Vivaldi). The interpretation of Pachelbel was poor (too fast) and gave us the feeling of business, not art enthusiasm. Mozart was ok. The friendliness of the inletting people could be better.
Very good music, Kristina and the band obviously enjoy playing togheter and twisting classics and compositions, so we enjoyed it too!
The food is ok but views of Prague at night were amazing.
The event was rather good overall. The musicians and the singer were great, but most of the pieces played during the second third of the concert felt rushed, compared to how I'm used to hear them. Also the opera singer performing at point-blank distance felt very overwhelming.
I would suggest making the programme a bit leaner, to allow for a more relaxed tempo. I also think that keeping the singer more in the back and not pushing the front rows so close would provide a better experience.
musiciens de haute performance, bon choix du répertoire
Enjoyed the evening on the jazzboat very much. We saw the main sights at night all lit up and very beautiful. Enjoyed the jazz very much. Wish it would have been a little warmer so we could have sit outside but in the end of October, to be expected.
High quality show !
Great singers! Great musicians! Great performance!
Amazing, talented performance.
Loved the story of Rusalka
Every performer is true artist. It will be better to provide a program menu.
This was one of the best and most engaging concerts I have ever been to -and I’ve been to thousands in London and Sydney. The musicians were superb and their musical skills were enhanced for me by the wonderful warmth and bonhomie between them - even though i didn’t understand a word of Czech!
It was very clear and simple to buy the tix for this marvellous concert online on Australia, weeks before we travelled to Prague. The Smetana concert hall is a beautiful Art Deco building, and the staff helpful. Great music by great musicians, played with heart and pride and power. Memorable,
Spectacle de piètre qualité, sûrement bon il y a 10 ans mais complètement dépassé aujourd'hui !
Tout était magnifique, le spectacle, les musiciens. Nous avons passé une soirée superbe. La mise en scene etait originale les costumes superbes et l'interprétation aussi. Merci
We heard and watched an excellent staging of Rusalka by Dvorak.
Very good music, but one hour was to short.
conductor was dynamic, piano soloist was outstanding.
Wow!! This was the most amazing evening of classical music I've ever been to. The church setting, the musicians, the singers- all completely blew my friend and I away. I have wanted to hear Mozart's Requiem for a long time and it was worth the wait to hear it in Prague. Only or tiny thing- taking email confirmation would be easier than having to print it off.
Potnpoutti musical agréable, chanteuse à la hauteur mais « ballet » sans aucun intérêt
The musicians were excellent. The pieces were well chosen and appreciated.
We wanted to see a marionette show in Prague because it seemed cultural and unique to the area. I really liked that this was one short (55 min). I'm not sure it would have held my interested for much longer. It also would have helped significantly if we had been familiar with the basic storyline first. We read the synopsis after the show was over. Still, I'm glad we went.
Beautiful concert in a beautiful setting. Wonderful way to experience Prague Castle.
Close environment with great music, food, drinks and atmosphere. I had a wonderful night out at Prague.
The performing artists were fantastic, we enjoyed every minute. Incredible they performed so good for such a small audience. My mother,85, was so touched by the performance she even cried. The pianist and especially the violinist played fantastic. Thanks for the wonderful evening.
The performing artists were great. We enjoyed it very much.
The food,wine and serving staff also very nice and friendly. We weren’t very pleased about the assigned table but it was solved in a second and thanks to that we had an awesome experience.
Wonderful place and beautiful music. What else could I ask for?
The event was fantastic. The venue was great and the quality of the musicians outstanding. Highly recommend it
There was no intermezzo by masgani which was indicated in the programme when i purchased the tickets.
This evening was a treat and one of the highlights of our trip to Prague. The program was well put-together, the players talented and well-balanced, and the violin and trumpet solos were outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the Presto movement of Vivaldi and the Dvorak.
sound was very good and music was lovely
Amateur performance and not worth the money.
The performance was outstanding. The quality of the program and the musicians were fabulously good. We could not understand why there were so few attendees. Whoever comes to Prague and has an interest in music should attend.
Lovely intimate concert. We took our 10 and 15 year old and both of them thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Short enough they didn't get bored and long enough for ús adults to enjoy. Many thanks
The music was fantastic and the performances were wonderful. The programme provided excellent variety and the encore added to the enjoyment of the concert. The musicians were extremely talented and performed well together. They were a joy to listen to and to watch as they quite clearly enjoyed working together and the music that they were playing.
good musicians in a beautiful site giving us emotions.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the concert on 10 March, and we thought the performers - all of them - were brilliant.
The only thing that seemed slightly out of line was the final 3 pieces by Gershwin proceeding Bernstein that made the last quarter very 'American pop-classical'.
I guess that may be due to audience pressure, but personally I'd have preferred some more Czech pieces - esp Dvorak!
Nevertheless it was a really great concert: many, many thanks.
The ballet was unprofessional, in most of the parts the dancers were not dancing on points ( except of the leading dancer ) and also in some of the parts they walked on stage instead of dancing . The dancers were not synchronized , weren't aligned correctly and the dancers weren't uniformed in height in a noticeable way.
It was disappointing to watch the performance with a recording and not with a live orchestra ( which is common in ballet ).
Ambiance de la salle très agréable . Solistes très bonne prestation. Durée et heure du concert parfait.
Je le recommanderai.
Petit bémol :l'accompagnement violon pour le Carmen de Bizet nuit à la partition de flûte.
This was the highlight of my trip to Prague! The entertainment and traditional Czech dancing and music was fabulous. The food was really good and the wine and beer was flowing. The servers were pleasant and the service was excellent. I highly recommend this dinner.
Great event. Had fun.
bonne qualité. tres bonne complicité entre les musiciens.
Very easy to purchase and pick up tickets. A little expensive. Excellent, engaging concert in a great setting. Thanks for making these available in this way.
Spectacle de grande qualité dans un décor fabuleux
Exquisite playing and accessible program even to six- and nine-year-olds.
It was an amazing concert, professional musicians, great music!
Seeing a Mozart masterpiece in a house he conducted the very opera in was a thrill beyond compare. An excellent production with first rate talent!
The musicians were AMAZING! I can only assume they perform these pieces hundreds of times a year, yet they seemed to be genuinely having fun and appreciated the audience. The pieces played were fantastic choices for a string quintet. I would see this again without hesitation.
One of the best concerts I"ve seen in Prague. A totally original concept in an incredible space. It was obvious much care and talent was present, not only in the performance but also the curation.
The concert was amazing. I have not hear such beautiful music for a long time.
The event was very entertaining. The performers were excellent.
The performance was very good ! The singers were professionals. It was accompanied by the good orchestra ! The atmosphere was very pleasure, with some humor . I recommended this performance for a good time evening.
Excellent choir and orchestra. Soloists superb.
Very easy and efficient booking system. Concert mediocre - mostly stylistically correct but everything played forte by the orchestra. Soloists displayed musical sensitivity. Venue beautiful.
The performance was not too professional, it was okay for amateur theater but our group was not aware that this would be an amateur theater. The amateurism was visible in the quality of clothing, in the technical elements, in quality of dancing etc.
Very entertaining for the kid inside you. The opera is a recording but it is a good one. The puppets are typical from the local imagery. The play is entertaining with funny interaction. The puppeteers are very skilled persons.
Not a real ballet, the “dancers” were just walking on the stage. One almost fell twice. Felt like a high school show. Would not recommend.
This was an utterly charming concert, and it will be one of the highlights of our visit to Prague! The performers were skilled and talented musicians, the premise of a drawing room concert while waiting for Dvorak to appear was charming, and the music was splendid. The hall (upstairs at the Dvorak Museum) was small and intimate, but at the same time grand. We are so glad we had an opportunity to experience this - thank you!
No words! Just awesome!
Very good performance from all.
First opera and it was spectacular! I would highly recommend and make sure to attend a show while you’re in Prague.
Excellents musiciens qui jouent avec beaucop d'émotion et une grande subtilité.
This was an excellent performance , as part of the annual Dvorak Festival. The second piece, "Quartet for the End of Time" by composer Olivier Messiaen, was absolutely amazing, with great performances by Sharon Cam, Josef Spacek, and Petr Nouzovsky. A thoroughly enjoyable concert .
Absolutely wonderful concert in a stunning concert hall
We enjoyed the performance, the lead female singer was superb and the lead male singer was good. The orchestra was very good.
Bon choix musical, même si grand public. Musiciens bons, très impressionnée par les sonorités de l'orgue brillamment joué.
Amazing preformance, worth every cent
varied and interesting assortment of short pieces of great music. Beautifully paid by enthusiastic young musicians and soprano.
This concert was a fabulous experience, not only the music, but the beautiful old church. The organ filled the space beautifully and the accompanying violin and vocals added variety to the program. I brought several friends to this event—most of whom are not classical music aficionados—and they all enjoyed the concert immensely.
I am always impressed by the skill of the performers. The mix of pieces was interesting but I would have preferred more pieces featuring the musicians not the singer.
This was a beautiful concert. The musicians were fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the pianist. The hall and surroundings are magnificent.
The concert overall was excellent. It would have been even better if the orchester leader or conductor could have welcomed the audience and perhaps have said something about the choice of programme or about the church itself.
Singer very good but some music played much too fast. Organ seemed to ramble a bit
Loved the music of Gershwin and others performed by these talented musicians.
A powerful performance, but no English translation.
This was an excellent concert with a guitar duo that has been playing together for over 40 years. The effortless communication between the two was noticeable. The selection of music was varied and included many enjoyable flamenco pieces. It was a quick hour-long concert, perfect for a rest after a long day of sightseeing. The only recommendation I would make is for there to be an announcement to turn off cell phones.
a Really good soirée style performance. Great singers, violist and pianist.
Sadly, our trip was cancelled due to low water in the river and had to cancel. We were very please with the ticket office and how they helped us
The venue is spectacular - beautiful with great acoustics. The musicians were all great, and Carmina Burana has a beautiful voice that truly sounds like a musical instrument.
Un programme varié: "local", puis lyrique puis symphonique. Excellent.
Wonderful songs but too long. The first part might have been conducted more energetically.
We where a bit disappointed. For this price I was expecting an orchestra. Theatre was very empthy. It was a nice show but not worth the price.
Our party was from US, Tanzania and Germany and we wanted a non-touristy performance. The artists were so talented and so full of life, and experiencing Prague folks out for a night made us feel part of the fabric of the city. It was easy to get tickets from the US, the concert hall is so spectacular. However, we cannot say enough positives accolades about these two performers, especially the very stellar Ms. Kim. Kudos to all of you.
Excellent dancers. Music quality very good, considering it was not live. Good value production and perfect for a short city break.
My ticket was presented to me at the door and the seat allocated afforded an excellent view in the middle of the theatre. The venue was wonderful and the concert was great. I had a very enjoyable experience.
A lovely concert. It was the perfect thing to take in after a busy day as a tourist in Prague. And what a gorgeous venue. Loved it.
A highlight of our trip to Prague (amongst many highlights) a lovely venue and crisp music, full of emotion and occasional fun, our family thoroughly enjoyed this concert
We really enjoyed the evening as the room itself was decorated in the era of Mozart. It was nicely laid out and the service was done with a feel of being a welcome guest...It was the jazz evening and the duo put a new little slant on the music . It was also very nice to dine with our age group and have just a small group.
Foerster’s Slavnostni predehra is not a very remarkable composition.
Lise Lindstrom’s volume was dwarfed by the sound of the orchestra. Not a good balance.
Very convincing performance of Mahler’s Synph. nr. 1
The venue was intimate and most appropriate for the guitar concert. Music was superb. My only suggestion is that the artists “introduce” themselves and provide a brief summary of what the audience is about to hear.
The musicians were great and played many of the well-known classics. We really enjoyed the event . Highly recommended.
The overture to Carmen played by a string quartet was ridiculous and the violin was sharp. The Dvorak was passable only and the Vivaldi was overdone, obviously to impress people who don't know much about music. This is for tourists. Those who enjoy classical music should give the Klementinum concerts a miss.
Un quatuor à cordes et une soprano au top ! L'utilisation de l'orgue de l'église est intéressante mais le mariage avec le quatuor ne fonctionne pas toujours. Quitte à faire fonctionner l'orgue, je choisirais un morceau dédié à cet instrument.
It was a long walk through Prague Castle grounds and we had to ask the way, but the concert was fine and we enjoyed it. The pianist was particularly good. We afterwards had lunch -10% discount and bought a present in the gift shop 40czk off.
The concert was very enjoyable. The musicians were extremely talented and expressive.
Really pleased that the venue was not really big which made a really intimate event. Really good value for money.
Food was excelent, music excelent, some ventilation of the boat dining room is needed. 30 degree is not pleasant even for people from
hot part of Australia.
De belles interprétations mais un orchestre un peu plus fourni aurait été apprécié
Très beau ballet
Absolutely flawless experience! Our tickets were waiting at the Will Call desk and our seats were fabulous. The ushers were beautiful, welcoming and helpful. The concert was the highlight of our trip!
Beautiful setting and wonderful music that was played at a very high standard. Thank you.
Concert varié, avec chants, orgue et cordes.
Truly an excellent event in a beautiful setting.
The musicians and singer were of the highest quality!
We enjoyed the concert. The venue was unique and beautiful. God Value.
Great value for money
Groupe de jazz de très grande qualité
The songs and the flow of the program were selected with a good taste. The musicians were excellent although the soprano sounded not all the time aligned with the rythm of the music.
The musician are top notch, and the program was delightful. The church itself is a stunning space. My only compliant is that for this concert (organ and soprano) you can't actually see the musicians, as they perform on a high balcony at the side. The sound is excellent, though.
We attended a candlelight concert that exceeded our wildest expectations. The featured performers played some lovely Bach and Czech folk songs, and then invited up to the stage several visiting musicians to the stage to play - one from Syria, another a student from Chile and yet two more from Mexico. They were all fabulous musicians, but the magic came when they all played together spontaneously. It is a night we will never forget - beautiful venue, amazing performers.
Itwas wonderful to get ‘up close and personal’ with the puppets at lunchtime - a fantastic informative and fascinating hands-on tour. So when we saw them in the evening we had already ‘met’ (and even held) them! A great tour, and the show was funny as well as being serious - the puppets and Mozart injected some humour into the evening . Altogether good value for money and good entertainment
Concert exceptionnel!! L'église est sublime, l'orgue et la cantatrice était bouleversant. Je recommande vivement d'assister à un concert dans l’église de Saint Nicolas de Mala Strana
We just loved the ballet, the performers were awesome, the whole experience was brilliant
It was a fabulous evening with warm and welcoming hosts. There was great laughter and fun. The food was delicious. The servers ensured that the wine continued to flow in a most memorable manner. The musicians and dancers shared their culture with joy.
Lovely experience. My husband, who doesn’t attend classical concert very often, enjoyed the night. Would love to come again with more friends/family.
A most moving and emotional experience. I cannot say I enjoyed my visit because enjoyment is not what it is all about, but I can say that when you leave this Camp words cannot describe the daily life, horrors and abuses these people went through. Everybody should visit Terezin to realise what happened here and it should be made compulsory that all school children visit.
Our Guide, Gizzi, was the best. So knowledgeable and so clear to understand and he answered all our questions on the cruel facts.
La croisière n'est pas du tout intéressante (trop de temps dans l'écluse).
Mike was a fantastic tour guide who provided great personal insights to the history of Prague
The event was beautiful and incredible! One of my favorite parts of Prague, hands down.
Excellent performers and orchestra. Unforgettable performance. Highly recommended!!!
Delightful show with great originality performed by very skilled artists. A traditional art that is rarely seen elsewhere and really worth seeing for adults and children.
Enjoyable performance at a historic venue.
It would be good if the customer has access to the seating plan & is able to choose the exact seat rather than just specify price & general area (stalls, circle, balcony, etc) & leave it to the ticketing agency to choose.
Also, for the sake of convenience, the concert / opera hall should consider accepting electronic tickets shown on the phone so that the customer does not have to collect printed tickets.
Thoroughly enjoyed the performance but very disappointed by the attendance. I booked online to what appeared to be the only two tickets available on row 5. At the event with the exception of two seats, every seat in front of us was empty. Behind us many seats were empty yet on the website they were shown as not being available. It seems inconceivable that there would be somany " no show" so I can only think that there was an economy of the truth which leaves a bad taste after such an enjoyable performance!
Romeo and Juliet, the ballet by Prokoviev, at the Hybernia Theatre was a wonderful production, with just excellent performances by both the leading dancers and the company. The dancers playing the two lovers, as well as Mercutio and TybaLt were very good at injecting comedy as well as romance and finally pathos in their roles.
Un moment cort de notre voyage!
Very good player...fine organ
Le corps de ballet est de niveau amateur, la chorégraphie peu dansante, l'engagement des danseurs faible également. Très décevant.
Loved it. Perfect for organ or classical music enthusiasts.
C'était mon premier concert de musique classique et dans un tel lieu on ne peut qu'apprécier. Le violoniste était tout simplement fantastique, et la Soprano... j'aimerais la demander en mariage.
Beautiful music and venue. But there is one bad thing: the spotlights should not shine on the audience.
Performance was well done and enjoyable.
Allí was perfect.
We purchased the combo ticket and thoroughly enjoyed touring the museum. An added bonus was the 10% discount in the café where we enjoyed a most pleasing, and affordable, lunch. The musical performance featured flute, viola and piano. The repertoire was challenging, especially when performed by only three musicians. The flautist was good but the length of some of her numbers tested her ability. The pianist was talented and played with enthusiasm, although sometimes with a heavier hand than I thought was necessary. Prague has been in the midst of a heat wave. The concert hall is within the palace and quite lovely. Some windows were opened but it would have been preferable to open additional windows to create a cross flow. We enjoyed our concert for its simplicity and the lovely palace setting.
Ok event, starter with one violin off key, and sounded like they were in a hurry as the compass was probably on the 160bps. At the mid, they re-tunned and this improved a lot the perf. The quartet is good on the Vivaldi part though.
Really informative, interesting, well paced tour. The group was not too large and the stories about the history of the Jewish Quarter were relevant. Our guide was wonderful.
The performers and the venue were excellent. A little expensive for a 1 hour event but was worth it.
All really good: the concert and the program of music.
And really very good the organist maestro Hugo.
The tour very much exceeded my expectations. Zac was very enthusiastic and informative and engaging with his indept knowledge of the castle district. 3 hours in total and I never felt rushed at any point. Very good value for money. He was happy to answer our other questions on Prague too. A great tour and I will recommend it to anyone I know going to Prague.
Absolutely exhilarating. The performers and orchestra were excellent. The program had me almost singing along.
Visiting Prague and spending good quality time in the evening particularly with traditional folk dances of czech with music is must for all visitors. We did it and it was awesome show. Dance was excellent , Food was great and desert mind bowing. It is must show to attend.
Unbelievable concert featuring a 3500 pipe organ. Tocotta and Fugue filled the church. Tje string quartet was very good especially the solo violinist. A hoghlight of our visit!
We really enjoyed the show, especially the variety of costumes and illusions. Having the variety kept my children’s interest. My kids also thought the comedians who did skits between acts were hilarious! I liked how they got the audience involved. Overall, bravo on a great performance!
We enjoyed handling the marionettes and seeing props and what the backstage looked like. It would have been nice if the tour guide would have done more of a demonstration of using the marionettes and shown more of the “tricks” and interesting aspects of the play we would see later in the day.
Excellent concert très varié dans le choix musical. Nous aurions aimé que cela dure plus longtemps qu'une heure.
Wonderful musicians snd a very enjoyable program. Only drawback wad the temperature of the hall due to tne heat wave sweeping Europe. Despite tje heat, i would go again.
The actors were good and the show was interesting with surprising elements.
We enjoyed the music. It was a pity that the performers were all behind us in the organ loft so we could not see the violinists or the singer. In the brochure it shows these performers in front of the audience.
The show was ok. I have to say I was not very impressed. I felt that more could have been done with the scenery on stage and so on. The experience overall was pleasant and I particularly enjoyed the last part where there was more interaction with the crowd.
The musicians and singer were very good, but for the price we paid we expected a concert with more than 3 people.
Tour was very fun and convenient. Adam was fun and knowledgeable. He gave a fun personal perspective and made it a great day. The restaurant the he took us too was also awesome and very reasonably priced.
The music was AMAZING!
Superb music in a wonderfull room
It was a wonderful introduction into the world of organs and the works of several composers. The setting was beautiful.
Beautiful concert hall, excellent musicians, we enjoyed our evening immensely
a very elegant, refined, sophisticated session. Jazz, fusion, funk, fun on level with the best bands in the world like the Yellowjackets, Spyrogyra...
three hours of very good music.
My wife and I were surprised and delighted at the concert given to us at this most beautiful synagogue. It was simply a delight/
A wonderful hour of old favorites. The musicians and the Church were wonderful. It was a great experience in the heart of a beautiful city.
Very nice building, good performance, the only critics l‘ll have is that the men's costumes were not impeccable (golden necklaces, not perfectly irones shirts, etc)
Wonderful music and musicians playing mostly familiar pieces. Beautiful setting, fine acoustics. Unfortunately,the wooden pews from 1688 were designed as torture instruments with a knife sharp edge strategically cutting across one’s back at the shoulder blades.
The concert was great.
The musicians were top notch and played a broad variety of short classical pieces.
The concert was very good and the musicians created a lovely atmosphere.
dressing code should stayed that slippers and short plant should not be allowed.
Very good, but I prefer more melodic music
My family loved the concert! Amazing church, incredible performers, beautiful music and excellent price.
The performance exceeded our expectations as the soprano and the violinist and orchestra, and the organist were spectacular.
Very pleasant boat trip with an excellent Jazz Band and an excellent diner. I can recommend without any hesitation. However, see remarks under the "Venue".
What I received comparing to the price I paid was very good. The show was great and the venue was fine. I enjoyed my time very much.
Beautiful play done by talented ballet dancers! While the music wasn't an orchestra, it made it feel like there was one in front of the stage and definitely felt real. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend and I would see it again.
Enjoyed the concert and loved the soprano - she sings effortlessly and with heat sincerity. I particularly enjoyed her
Yiddish song. The synagogue is very beautiful. Only one problem is the lack of Irconditioning; it was very hot.
Spectacle original, poétique, bien réalisé mais dommage que parfois on voit les acteurs en noir agir...
This was the second time I was priveleged to attend the Czech Collegium event t the Spanish Synagogue. This event is seamless from beginning to end. The music and vocals hypnotize you into a state of beauty.
Overall this was a wonderful performance. I was somewhat disappointed that the program advertised online differed by a few pieces from the one played on the night; indeed, the two pieces I really wanted to hear - and chose this event because they were advertised to be on the program - were not played on the night.
I saw this show during my last visitor Prague 5 years ago. This visit my mother and daughter were with me and as neither had seen ballet previously I recommended we see this show as I’d enjoyed before.
We booked our tickets online the day before and arranged to collect from the Musica store in Old Town Square ( locating this took a little effort). We arrived 15 mins before the show start time and were advised to select free seats from the Row sections we had booked for. This worked well and we had a good view of the stage. The show commenced promptly and had us all captivated throughout. The dancers worked tirelessly and there didn’t seem to be a step out of place. The thing to remember is this isn’t The Royal Ballet- if people want or expect that, they shoutout and pay Royal Ballet seating prices. Also remember this is The Best of Swan Lake not the complete Ballet, however the way this is put together works really well to give a good overview of the story.
Well worth a visit, talented dancers and good value for money
It might be helpful if dress code is stated on the ticket or website.
Absolutely fantastic! Sakura and Bach were especially great. I think they open instrument's potential to full scale.
Le concert a passé beaucoup trop vite.
Amazing concert, beautiful music and venue. A very special experience.
This was a beautiful experience . Cruising along the Vitava, listening to jazz and seeing the mesmeric lights of Prague flow by made the experience memorable. The staff were nice , smiling and helpful. The food was good. The jazz singer and the others in the jazz band made some good music together
Great musicians but the venue didn't have a lot of atmosphere. Ashame audience was so small too. Reminded me of a school performance. Also, place difficult to find.
Repas très bien. Un service excellent. Un concert plein de surprises avec beaucoup d'humour. À conseiller
Very nice concert in a gorgeous room.
Beautiful concert in gorgeous surroundings.
Dommage qu à la sortie du métro il n y ait aucune indication. On a cherché pendant 1h. De l avis des passants on nous envoyait dans des directions opposées. La soirée à été très agréable et conviviale. Folklore participatif. Excellents musiciens. La jeune chanteuse aussi.
An excellent concert! We enjoyed it a lot!!
N avons même pas vu le visage du trompettiste .il ne s est pas déplace au bord de la barrière pour saluer le public.la soprano était très souriante . Qualité de la prestation
Terrific live performance, really enjoyed the Vivaldi portion!
Excellent musicianship in a gorgeous setting. Highly recommended!
The musicians were excellent and the performance was professionally executed. However, when I reserved the tickets I did not know how long the program was going to be so it would have been better if I knew what the length of the concert was.
This event surpassed our expectations. It was a wonderful concert in Klementinum Chapel in Prague, where Mozart is said to have performed. It was a small ensemble of 4 string instruments, an opera singer, and an organist that played favorites from Vivaldi, Mozart, and others. They were all outstanding. And the history and acoustics of the Klementinum only added to the enjoyment!
Tour was great. The lady (I don't remember her name) spoke spanish perfect and made the tour very enjoyable.
They were very talented and engaging. We really enjoyed their performance.
The musicians were excellent . It was a nice touch for us as a group to have a glass of fizz. We were a little disappointed with the high price for 50 minutes of music (700Ck = £26) for a quartet with no introductions of pieces played etc.
The venue was lovely with nice acoustics.
The venue is nice and cosy, well located. The challenge was that while the seat were organized to face the Altair, the musicians performed 80% of time at the back of the church, on the first floor balcony, where organ is located. It was a bit weird, since if you want to observe musicians, you have to sit with your head reversed and up. On the other hand, in the absence of musicians, one had enough time to observe the fresques on the walls and ceilings
nous avons trouvé le repas correct, mais le spectacle dit "folklorique" est peu représentatif du folklore local , il s'agit de faire participer le public aux très diverses nationalités à un répertoire international...pour chauffer la salle.
Ce n'est pas ce que nous attendions, mais soirée sympathique sans plus.
My expectations of this concert, while quite high, were completely surpassed. The intensity and integrity of Gabriela Vermelho's vocal delivery was captivating - and the virtuosity of the ensemble playing added layers of pleasure. Veering between unbearably sexy and deeply poignant this was the perfect performance to have experienced in beautiful Prague
It was like dreaming during the concert. Beautiful place, great orchestra. Simply magic.
We really enjoyed the show. The musicians were extremely talented and very generous in their performances for a small audience of 6.
A great surprise, we enjoyed very much
Absolutely gorgeous venue. Accoustics were magnificent. String quartet performed beautifully and the organ music was superb to say the absolute least. I highly recommend this concert and this venue. Cannot wait to return to Prague to witness more of these fine concerts. This was my third trip to beautiful Prague and have seen four concerts as similiar venues. All have been wonderful and made me want to return for more. Five Stars!
We had a good time. The venue was very good. The act was ok. The musicians were good but we felt the singer let them down. I do not know how you can do a Frank Sinatra tribute and not play My Way or the Lady is a Tramp. They are my two favourite songs and he did not sing them.
We enjoyed the show immensely.
It was awsome performance!
This was the main event in our week long holiday in Prague. Truly spectacular. Impressive sound of the orchestra, who played with great joy and unision. Special praise goes to the solo violinist. Thanks for making our Saturday night an unforgettable one.
Uplifting singing and organ playing. Very good choice of pieces played and sung. Pity the soprano was singing from near the organ rather than down infront of us.
An unforgettable concert. All musicians gave a magnificant performance and it was clear that they were enjoying themselves whilst performing. Special praise goes to the soloists especially the oboist. Sound was super excellent. Venue had very good aucustics and beautiful setting. Praise goes also to the organisers for starting the program on time. Still hearing the beautiful music in my ears. Thank you so much. Hope to experience this same concert with same choice of music once again.
Absolutely superb— Incredible musicianship and lovely programme —simply enchanting!! We loved it so much we came back this evening for the Hallelujah concert— fantastic!!
A great concert with very fine playing. We would thoroughly recommend it.
Not the best quality
The musicians were very talented and a joy to watch. I'm so glad we booked this - it was a great experience.
If the concert may extend to 1.5 hours would be even better.
Très joli spectacle à la fois poétique et comique qui fait passer une bonne soirée
Par excellent performance, touching the right chords, and leaving an indelible impression.
I am taking back a beautiful experience to my country.
Absolutely sublime, brought tears to my eyes
Tonight it felt as though I was hearing Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Bach's Toccata and Fugue in d minor and Smetana's Moldau for the first time. Not the best recordings or the most sophisticated sound equipment can reproduce the intimate interplay between brilliant musicians, an incredible space and a riveted audience. The Toccata and Fuga in d minor on the Baroque organ had a rich earthiness, an intense physical quality of stops and keys that a recording simply cannot capture.
Une programmation d'œuvres d'abord très facile, dans une acoustique quasi parfaite avec des interprètes d'une qualité irréprochable. Un pur moment de bonheur quand dans un cadre somptueux, les angelots et les personnages bibliques s'animent dans la fin d'une journée chargée.
Really enjoyed the music. And the soprano was wonderful.
We enjoyed the intimate venue and being able to watch the performers up close. They have a very enjoyable performance. My only critic would be the chairs. They were ok for an hour but could have been better. Thank you for a wonderful show.
Excellent location and length of performance.
The music was wonderful. The performers seemed to enjoy their craft and it reflected upon the audience.
Beautiful baroque church. Concert with string quartet, organ and soloist. Soloist was very good. Tempo of the string quartet was overly fast at times. Sometimes this is due to the musicians getting sick of playing “greatest hits” or showing off but they need to remember these pieces are beloved for a reason! Why do you think you can improve on Mozart? Organ was beautiful but quite loud, overpowering the strings in the Handel organ/string piece.
You know, I was waiting a litle bit more, but I'm not shure that I'm right, because it wasn't a real concert, just a little feeling about the music. But it was a realy pleasant hour.
About the Museum I don't want to write anything.ko
The music performed was excellent. But the musicians played in the organ loft, so the audience had to turn round 180 degrees...to see them.
There were no introductions to any of the music or the musicians, which was also very disappointing.
There was no interaction with the audience.
As an experience, it felt very ‘detached’.
What an inspiring and exciting event! An intimate setting with an ensemble that plays as a well-knitted team. It was inspiring to see how the artists interact and co-ordinate - due to the small venue and there being only a small group of artists and no conductor it was very evident how they worked together to perform in synch. The music was full-sounding and I could not believe that such a small group achieved this. The voice of the soprano was unexpectedly powerful - her appearance belied the vocal energy that was forthcoming.
Please note that I also attended another event, which I rated poorly. My good rating for this event is not out of habit - it is truly worth it. To the extent that I would not mind doing it again this same week!
A beautiful room. Superb selection of music played and sung sublimely in a space with excellent acoustics. Great value for a unique experience.
This Opera Dinner was the highlight of our 10-day trip through Germany, Prague, and Vienna. I would recommend to anyone who loves opera to consider this event as a very special night of entertainment,.
We had a very pleasant evening. The club is in itself interesting by its frame of the fifties (I think).
the trio of the musicians was of a higher artisque level, the voice of the singer was simply captivating so much, it was just and beautiful.
Stunning playing and a great way to spend an evening in Prague. Thank you so much!
The musicians were excellent. It was a nice surprise having the vocalist perfrom.
This was a wonderful performance, and we are very happy that we went. The musicians and the vocalist were great, and the acoustics in the building were so lovely. The amount of time for the show was very good for us.
Très bien organisé
Très bonne soirée...
Un spectacle avec des jeunes très dynamiques
Albinoni's Adagio was superbly performed with deep emotion. Smetana's Vlatva was wonderfully evocative of the river's eddies and ripples. The first violin was remarkable. I recommend this performance to other visitors.
Magnificent talented musicians
The venue was fantastic and the performers were solid! For 500 Kc, the level of performers, especially the soloist, was fantastic. I would recommend.
beautiful music in a lovely space
We enjoyed the performance very much! Music played by those who just love to play!
I really much loved it, but my husband an my 2 friends did not so much … they would say "good"
I was surprised, that the whole dialog is not translated, I am sure that a lot of allusions passed by …
maybe it is possible to work with headphones …. ???
Thanks a lot, I loved most the performance of the chicken …
Martine Regenwetter Luxembourg
We really loved it !
we appreciated the effort behind it;
only the "story" with the suitcases was technically interesting and most probably difficult - even if the message behind is worthwhile eg that extreme competition might destroy you - the scene had some length ….
We loved the first sketch most (little socks …)
continue like that !
Martine Regenwetter Luxembourg and friends
Price was a little expensive, but otherwise, it was a wonderful venue. Tickets were very easy to obtain.
Thêatre, organisation, spectacle... tout a été parfait.
Wonderful concert and venue - exceeded expectations. Musicians were excellent and music choice very enjoyable.
As a first timer to such an event, I chose rightly. The performance was mixed, varied and amply just for me to digest. Many thanks!
Our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Prague’s gardens, particularly the lesser known ones at Wallerstein Palace and other noble houses. Our guide, Lindka, was a lady minute substitute for the scheduled guide, and she performed superbly, shedding much historical and cultural insight. Plus, she graciously tried to make dinner reservations for our party while conducting the tour. One minor glitch as the administrator’s difficulty in locating proof of payment, but that problem was reconciled within a few hours.
Bon concert varié avec des artistes talentueux. Très bon moment.
I really enjoyed it, but could have been a little bit longer (+30 min)
Le spectacle était superbe ! C'était notre premier opéra en amoureux, ainsi que notre première venue à Prague. Nous sommes vraiment ravis et cela reste un très beau souvenir. Nous avons acheté nos billets sur pragueticketoffice.com et nous avons reçu des vouchers par mail. Aucun problème pour entrer dans le théâtre.
A lovely sampling of baroque music performed exquisitely. Short, sharp, and joyous.
We were more than disappointed about the low level of the event. The place was hot and without any air . The performers gave you a feeling that the audience was made of children, first grade school. The themes were silly and meaningless. We had no idea what to expect from the black theatre, but surely not what was presented.
outstanding performance not to be missed
Excelent performance. An exciting sample of the more than interesting local jazz culture
outstanding music and venue very wheelhair accessible and friendly people to help at the venue - did not try thetoilets so don't know their quality. the chairs at the venue were not very comfortable so sat on my wheelhair throughout the concert.
A splendid performance, especially of the wonderful Brahms quartet
Wonderful! Made our daughters 21st Birthday Celebration very special
We have seen operas around the world. This was one of the finest performances we have seen. Stage and scenery included.
Outstanding musicianship! Passion, precision and personality! A wonderful evening event to start our week in beautiful Prague.
This was a very impressive, creative performance. It was our first view of Laterna Magica, and it affords a beautiful selection of 60 years of this original, artistic group.
The players are very competent, and they do a fine job with the music. It would be nice if there were more variety of music available. I think "The Four Seasons", Dvorak's "Slovanic Dance #8", and the other selections are played every night in Prague. The audience seemed to get most excited by the encore, Ronald Binge's "Elizabethan Seranade". Many went up to the front to see what it was because it was unfamiliar to most of the audience. I think that shows that it is not necessary to play only the "old saws" which do get a bit boring.
Nous avons passé un magnifique moment, plein de poésie, de rires.
Un grand bravo aux acteurs pour leur performance.
The music selection was terrific. The execution was average. The orchestra was small for these particular pieces. The trumpets were out of tune with the rest of the orchestra. This was not the best performance I have heard. Further, after extended applause, the conductor failed to provide an encore piece which seemed to be rather arrogant on his part. The program was rather short.
Seconde fois que je passe la soirée ici à 12 ans d'intervalle ! Toujours aussi agréable !
Nous conseillons fortement ce concert dans un lieu magnifique. Les musiciens et la soprano nous ont fait vivre un moment très agréable, malheureusement trop court.
I've took the chance going there with a group of 8 friends (all in their 20's), some without any particular tastes for classical music, at the 6pm session on a saturday.
The experience was truelly amazing for everybody.
The venue, its acoustic, and both musicians and soprano, were so perfect.
Don't hesitate, well worth the price for the experience.
Mesmerising performance of Swan Lake - the dancers were all incredible and it was my favourite activity of my 3 (very active!) days in Prague. Would fully recommend.
Boléro and carmina burana were played by 4 musicians
I was disppointed and it was very expensive for this kind of concert
A écouter et à voir, trés bon rapport qualité prix. A faire impérativement si on a le temps !
I loved this performance. There was everything: humor, special effects, suspense, fun and drama, I liked the marionette that had the mouth moving as well as the body parts. I loved the insertion of the larger then life human on stage and in the performance with the marionettes.
Musicians were excellent, good at explaining their choice of music.
A relaxing break away from city buzz for an evening of good music in pristine gilded setting.
The orchestra was as can be expected in Prague: seriously committed; the conductor was on top of the job and choir and soloists gave all they had. The evocation of the vagaries of Revolution took a very special resonance, be it 1793 or 1956.
Entertaining with a lot of humour and unexpected effects. Eminent actors. Some of the clown acts could have been a bit shorter.
A very pleasant evening with good food and lovely music in a great setting.
Lovely music, the boat trip was serene.
The five performers were very talented, and the small beautiful room where the concert was held had great acoustics. I have never been so close to such outstanding musicians.
It was a very nice and beautiful performance. Thank you!
Good choice of recognisable pieces, which we felt were played very well by the musicians involved. We were especially impressed by the lead male violin soloist who played Vivaldi’s Four Seasons : he was really talented!
"Average" for the dancing part.
"Weak" for the musical part (no live orchestra), for the scenario and for the dressing of the dancers.
truly beautiful music in beautiful environment,
Intimate concert with wonderful musicians in a georgeous location.
What an amazing venue for music!! Five instrumentalists and a vocalist filled the Spanish Synagogue with wonderful music. A terrific concert.
A warning if you are visiting and are looking for Via Musica in the Old Town Square: No one knows where it is so don't bother asking directions. Just look for the address number right on the Square!
The performance was excellent; all musicians played well together, and the sound was amazing.
Very good dancers and entertaining actors. Many nice special effects.
Excellent musicians playing with a lot of joy. Nice to hear and watch.
Wonderful program of music, expertly performed! A real treat!
Excellent value for money. Good meal, good wines, good music, good musicians and dancers !!
Superb performances. We were also pleased to see so many young people in the audience. People younger than 60 rarely attend classical music concerts here in the United States. You are doing something better than we are.
Très belle représentation sous-titrage en anglais très pratique
Très agréable moment !
Highlight of the holiday !
This concert was one of the best I've ever attended
Good selection of music. Beautiful performance of all musicians. Can highly recommend it as it significantly enhances your memories from Prague.
Prokofiev's Cinderella Suites are among my favourite pieces of classical music but are so rarely performed, so it was an absolute pleasure to hear them in Smetana Hall and the orchestra was sublime.
The Rachmaninoff was also fantastic. Lukas Vondracek is a phenomenal performer and I was completely captivated by his performance.
Overall the concert was outstanding
The performances were performed at a very high professional level.
Continuous action + interaction with the audience.
Super soirée swing, spectacle varié et des artistes impressionnants. Seul bémol : on n'a pas la place de danser !
What a great way to end my trip to Prague, with a treat for the ears. It is always a treat to listen to Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.5 but this performance made it even more special. The acoustics of the venue probably helped.
Great location and excellent performance by the artists. I wished the concert would have been a bit longer than just an hour.
Une sublime soirée. Tout y était, le cadre, le service au top, et le repas de qualité. Très fin. Je recommande vivement ce jazz boat.
My friends (6 of us in total) thoroughly enjoyed the one hour performance. We were all so relaxed that we practically melted into the chairs! Perfect setting with wonderful music. The blue chairs were a little uncomfortable for one of my friends who has a slight physical disability. There were comfortable chairs in the room but our tickets said we had to sit in the blue chairs. The only other thing i would say is the performers never introduced themselves. It would have been nice if they had said a few words before entertaining us with their extraordinary talent. I would definitely recommend this a must see when visiting beautiful Praque.
Cadre et musique agréable.
Déçus, very desappointed by the meal and the service. Not very good and fine dîner.
Pas à la hauteur du lieu et du cadre.
Mauvaise gestion du service.
Fantastic show. Don't miss it.
I had trouble hearing the violin soloist. I'm not qutie sure if it's beacuse of problems with my hearing aids or dead spots in the hall. The orchestra was excellent at times and not so great at other times. So, this rating is a little unreliable as the main problem may be mine, not yours.
Beautiful music of spiritual quality from organist and soprano, but it would be nice to have an introduction of the performers before they start playing
Bellissimo concerto. Un'esecuzione della prima sinfonia di Brahms non lontana dall'eccellenza. Grande orchestra e grande direttore.
This rating is mostly for the soprano. Organist = above average.
The performance was wonderful!
Une très bonne soirée! Des serveurs en sobriété mais à l’ecoute, un groupe de jazz de qualité, un point de vue très sympa sur la ville.
Très bon son. Très bon choix au niveau musical.
N ayant pas eu le choix d autres places nous étions loin et n avons pas su profiter pleinement du visuel de l événement.
muy buena selección de música
Great afternoon jazz, venue and service were excellent and the band was just perfect. Would love to go back next time I am in Prague.
Beutiful venue, heated seats and blankets avaliable during winter. We visited in march and did not freeze during the concert. Be on time - 30 min before - to grab the best seats!
The Suk Hall is a small performance place but the acoustic resonance is suprising good for chamber music. The Czech Philharmonic String Quartet is professional and full of passion with high level. The programme is very good: Albinoni's Adagio, Liszt's La Campenella, Rimsky-Korsakov's The Flight of the Bumblebee, Bizet's Farandole and Khachaturian's Sabre Dance are specially impressive
Performance was good, very good singing.
Excellent performance. Good mix of pieces. Time estimated at 90 minutes but was 2 1/2 hours - no problem for me but maybe tricky for those planning around the timing estimate.
Amazing acoustics. Trumpets with organ
Lovely lively concert on an Easter Sunday night. Excellent musicians and programme.
Amazing mix of organ, soloist and cello. Venu was very very cool in early April, so happy we had our coats. Seats were typical hard church pews, but nothing took away from the beautiful music for our entire family. Well worth going, especially on Easter Sunday.
We did this our first night in Prague. While you’ll find pretty much every former church, monastery, or medieval structure has a concert on any given night, the acoustics here were amazing! A great experience at a more-than-reasonable price. Familiar music sounded amazingly fresh and invigorating.
We really enjoyed this show. Great musicians👍
All people who loves the Blues will enjoy an evening with this Band.
It was amazing - not only for our ears... also for our eyes :-)
Samotný výkon byl velmi nádherný.
Mohl jsem vybrat pouze některé kategorie z webových stránek, ale myslím, že by bylo ještě lepší, pokud by bylo možné zvolit více sedadel a balkónových sedadel, pokud je to možné.
Excellent bas and tenor singers, wonderful choir and orchestra!
A wonderful experience.
Brilliant concert by brilliant orchestra
Great concert in an amazing city.
Excellent venue and dinner. Music also excellent. My only complaint was the loud talkers two tables away. I had to finally get up and ask them to lower their volume so we could hear music. Other diners there thanked me — I was hoping manager would have hushed them
We enjoyed the production of this opera, which was unfamiliar to us. It was a creative and thought-provoking production. It was a highlight of our trip to Prague!
Mezzo-soprano was particularly good in Russalka aria.
A wonderful performance in a fantastic setting. It was one of the highlights of my trip to Europe.
Loved the event and this modern take on such a classic. Superb.
Nous avons passé une excellente soirée, que ce soit les artistes, l’histoire, la mise en scène, tout était parfait !
Very good performance by two artists obviously in sync.
Music was phenomenal and truly talented lively musicians. Being served a glass of champagne before the performance was a nice treat!
Soirée originale et typique permettant d'apprécier des œuvres classiques.
À faire !
When I ordered the tickets for our family of four, I was a little worried that the others wouldn't enjoy the concert, as they are not big fans of classical music. However, everyone enjoyed the performance very much. The quartet were not only excellent musically but also very personable and invested a lot of effort and heart into their performance. ... The venue was beautiful, and the soft lighting added to our enjoyment. I personally also very much liked the art exhibition: the paintings of the Passion of Christ with their spiritual emphasis. ... However, I felt sorry for the lady who sat outside in the cold, taking the audience's tickets. I hope you pay her well!!
Very good concert. I particularly appreciated the way the two performers played together so harmoniously.
I thoroughly enjoyed this performance! The Klementinum Mirror Chapel venue was spectacular (and has wonderful acoustics), and the performers were outstanding as well. I found it to be GREAT value for your money and would highly recommend it! It was also cool day in Prague but the venue was nice and warm which made it even more enjoyable (some of the other venues can be quite cool at this time of year).
Musicians are beautiful!Very cold in the Church.
What a great musical experience in a beautiful setting. The string quartet were especially good and the lead violinists gave us a brilliant show of her skill, dexterity and feel for the music. The singing was beautiful and the organ (historically played by Mozart himself). A very enjoyable early evening (we chose the 1700 concert), rounded off b6 an excellent dinner nearby
Good selection of music. Well-played and the acoustics were excellent.
The great teamwork the puppeteers performed was excellent. The puppets were a true work of art each. And the performance of Mozart's opera was a great success.
Spectacle très agréable. Belle prestation
A neat concert well timed light and entertaining in a venue of character.
Cadre parfait pour un concert.
Soprano tres bien. Orgue un peu en decalage pour les cordes
Bonne soirée dans un petit théâtre avec peu de moyens de mise en scène mais avec un rendu parfait du au talent des danseurs et comédiens...
À recommander absolument
Musicians are good
I was Happy for this moment.
Thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Outstanding singing in leading roles. Highly recommended!
Really nice concert. Nice musical selection and very well performed.
Wanted something to do in Prague on a cold evening without being a late night this was great finished at 6.30pm excellent music and performers the building is deceptive, entrance does not look much but inside the synagogue is wonderful and makes for great acoustics
The information said arrive early to get good position ie 20 minutes or so but actually the door was not opened until 15 minutes before the performance not an issue though
Overall a wonderful experience and i would recommend it
Fantastic event, real privilege to see a Czech treasure such as Rusalka in Prague. The opera was outstanding, and 100 years on still relevant and engaging.
Beautiful venue, wonderfully talented performers, average waitstaff. We hada very nice evening listening to talented performers. Recommended for something different. Almost like a private recital. I wish Mozart's arias were a little more melodic or they expanded the repertoire just a bit. Mozart arias are fun and lively, bit they're not beautiful and don't bring the listeners to tears or emotional heights like some italian composers. They're more campy, staccato-sounding, and even bawdy sometimes. Still, great evening. Also, event program should list arias in order and provide background to each song.
ne pouvant choisir Bon j'ai mis Moyen . Mais l'appreciation devrait etre BON
Spectacle très original . Un bon rythme d'enchainement des differents tableaux . Une belle harmonie entre expression et technique .
stunning performance, genuinely breath taking.
String qartet outstanding, perfect and professional. But organist was probably in bad humor (performance was awful)
Fantastic event, show, venue and food. Great performers who had fun with the audience. Singers put on a great show and made the event all the more worthwhile. A must do for anyone visiting Prague. If I had to find something to improve on I would suggest the waiters paid more attention to the filling of glasses for people who purchased drinks by the bottle. As we found ourselves filling our own as we were passed by too often. Overall fantastic and the highlight of our trip to Prague.
Excellents musiciens, bon choix des œuvres présentées. Seule l’interprétation des Canons de Pachelbel ne m’a pas convaincu. Durée de l’événement judicieux.
I’ve been a fan of Vince Mendoza (especially his orchestrations for Joni Mitchell) for years and was delighted that this concert coincided with a short visit to Prague - my first visit.
Although I enjoyed the items in the first half, I really enjoyed the world première of Mendoza’s Concerto for Orchestra. I felt here that he proved himself not solely a jazz composer but a true member of the lineage of Barber-Ives-Bernstein-Adams. The CBSO seemed to go up a gear in this work which, in the main, was more dynamic than the first half’s more atmospheric content. They are an excellent orchestra and to prepare the programme for live broadcast with two day’s rehearsal was more than impressive.
Well done, everyone.
eine Vielzahl bekannter Musikstücke und Arien aus verschiedenen Werken von Mozart, Dvořak, Smetana, Strauß und die Darbietung des Balletts war ein musikalischer Hochgenuss.
Begeistert waren wir von der sehr guten Sopranistin, der Interpretation der Musikstücke durch das Ballett einschließlich des Nachwuchses und des Orchesters.
Es war für uns ein stimmungsvoller musikalischer Abend.
Danke für die Darbietung.
A husband and wife duo that not only share the stage but one mind as they present beautiful classical and flamenco pieces in complete harmony.
Vraiment très bien. Je ne connaissais pas la première partie qui m'a un peu moins ravi.
Wonderful musicians and world class soloist. The venue at the Spanish Synagogue was small with only room for an audience of around 50 people but it had the most beautiful decor with excellent acoustics. The choice of music was varied and met all tastes.
If I had a criticism, it would have been good to have a programme provided or a multi language introduction to the pieces played
Wonderful performance in a beautiful Church. But too cold for one hour staying in february with no heating. Unbearable.
Very good show! It was super entertaining and the perfect amount of interaction eith the audience
Отличный вариант Щелкунчика, адаптированный для детей. Хороший театр. Жаль, музыка была не живая, а запись.
Spectacle et repas réussis dans un cadre somptueux.
Exhilarating performance. Truly loved it. Venue was superb.
We booked this concert from Scotland in advance of our trip to Prague. Found it easy to book and pay online. Thoroughly enjoyed the concert which had a really good mix of music genres. A nice length of concert at one hour long although I could have listened for much longer!
An enjoyable introduction to Black Light Theatre. A must for every visitor to Prague if they haven't seen Black Light Theatre before.
This is an event which is probably everything you expect it to be. The venue is outstanding - in fact a visit to Prague is incomplete without attending a performance there. The actual production was lavish and the singing and orchestra first class. Attending opera at the National Theatre is a special occasion and as Londoners who tend to get blase about theatre and music performances we definitely felt underdressed!
Très inconfortable repas honteux pour un soir de jour de l’an:
pâtes bolognaises et petits morceaux de pain ´ aucun dessert ni fruit ,en buffet au sous sol insalubre .
Par contre bonne musique.
The combination of the museum visit and the recital was excellent.
This concert had a huge impact on me. It was a long time since I had heard anything as beautiful in a place that deserves the same description.
One of the best experiences in my life. Congratulations to each artist from yesterday, I thank you
Fantastic concert which we really enjoyed. The pieces were well chosen and amazingly well played. We would definitely recommend this experience!
Outstanding performances from the musicians and Soprano soloist. Varied and interested programme. Would highly recommend.
The event was perfect, the location couldn't be more captivating. Customer support was also excellent as i had a small problem with the card payment, but they solved instantly and i had my tickets in 5 minutes
Intimate concert performed by incredibly talented people in the most beautiful surroundings. Would highly recommend.
God oplevelse med den klassiske musik. Maden var ok men ikke vandvittig god ...
The absolute highlight of our Christmas in Prague. The works by Smetana and Dvorak will always be amongst my favourite memories.
A wonderful choral presentation, and a highlight of our Christmas in Prague
The interval and due the theatre was not written on the leaflet
Thank you for the great evening!!!
Fantastisk arrangement i smukke omgivelser. Et orkester og en solist som var gode og gjorde deres bedste ...
Really pleasant experience. The Synagogue was beautiful and the performance was just the right length and lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed the event.
The wonderful Gershwin repertoire has been played excellently. I have nothing else to say except: go and take a ticket!
Great concert. Very entertaining and masterfully executed. Everyone was absolutely amazing, the first violinist was exceptional.
What could be better than listening to Gershwin in the synagogue on January 1st of the New Year? :) Excellent chamber concert, well-coordinated sextet of musicians, excellent acoustics, wonderful atmosphere. Got great fun, thanks
The Czech Philharmonic string quartet was absolutely fantastic! I attend a lot of chamber music events wherever I go and this was one of the best I've seen. Wish the Czech Philharmonic was in season so I could have seen the entire orchestra as well! Would definitely recommend if you enjoy classical music or want to experience the sounds of some of the most famous compositions from this part of the world.
Très beau concert exécuté par un très bon orchestre.
The event was great! Sean took our group to the Prague Castle and he's clearly passionate about this city's history and is very knowledgable.
He shared with us a lot of interesting facts that no normal tour guide would know.
I strongly recommend booking this toor!
Fine artists, fine mise-en-scene, fine evening!
WHAT A GREAT NIGHT WILL HAVE TO COME TO TRY AND TAKE IT ALL IN WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANY ON TRAVELING TO PRAGUE FOR AVERY GOOD NIGHT OUT AND VERY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY
we enjoy this great show with marvellous singers in a magnifique theater
The Terezín tour was a highlight of our trip to Prague. It was extremely informative and moving and our tour guide, Givvy (excuse the spelling), was outstanding. His knowledge of Czech, WWII, and concentration camp history was impressive and he presented his insights and information in a way that was interesting and easy to absorb.
The Terezín tour gave us a small glimpse into the prevailing themes and atrocities that were apart of war and Nazi rule. It left a lasting impression on us and we would wholeheartedly recommend it.
Excellent evening. Thank you
Super show ! Overwhelming! Not only a good show but an interactive theatre! If you don't show up you' ll miss something special!
The concert was very traditional and an excellent start for us to the festive season and our visit to Prague for my partners 50th Birthday, all three artists were very talented. The duration of around and hour and a quarter was perfect and seemed to fly by quickly, excellent value for money!!
We will definitely attend this again next Year!!!
Groupe de jazz super sympa et de très bons musiciens !
nous avons passé une superbe soirée. très bonne découverte pour nous et les enfants!
musiciens très abordables, nous avons pu discuter avec Charlie qui est effectivement un Excellent joueur d'harmonica!
We liked the concert. Repertory appropriate for a Christmas concert. The musicians and the singer were not first class but the set sounded good. The worst was the entrance of the public once the concert started. It should not be allowed.
This was our first venture in to light classical music. We were not disappointed. Most people would be familiar with the majority of the selected music - thus our choice. Venue was stunning. Acoustics, fabulous. Bolero - the performance was breathtaking. Disappointed that some patrons chose to disregard the signs saying no photographs and no recordings thus causing distraction for those around them.
Wonderful expression of classical music
Amazing accustic. Concert is a very greate. Many thanks.
Sure, if possible, will repeat.
High quality musicians and a very good selection of songs. Well performed
Super concert qui correspondait à nos attentes, d'excellents musiciens et cantatrice
Niveau de danse médiocre
mise en scène médiocre
A superb event, perfect in every way. The acoustics were incredible, the orchestra, soloists and chorus provided the ultimate presentation of the Christmas mass.
Nice music selection (ideal for friends visiting Prague) but overall atmosphere could be a bit better - people wore inappropriate clothes.
The musicians have been better than the audience. I personally don‘t need Jingle Bells at the end of a classical concert. But the concert was well performed.
this concert in the the mirror chapel was an absolout highlight of mij citytrip in Prag. everywhere streets full with people en then this concert in the quierdness of the mirror chapel
Très belle prestation
To show a clear screenshot+ID should be enough as a valid ticket.
Tres beau concert dans un lieu magique !
A beautiful organ concert
Performance très décevante. Orchestre "symphonique" réduit à sa plus petite expression.
Où étaient les 42 musiciens de l'orchestre ? Peut-être cachés derrière un couple de danseurs qui tentaient de faire illusion ?
Nous nous attendions à un "concert de Noël" digne de ce nom.
Classic Goes Jazz was the best live concert I’ve had a pleasure to listen to in years. Phenomenal musicians and energy. Wonderful music selection and interpretation. Overall, all 6 of us were ecstatic for having chosen this event for our short one night stay in Prague.
The part with the participation of the audience was amazing!!!
It was good, but I didn't quite understand the story line. It wasn't my husbands favorite show.
Seeing the puppet show was quite an experience. The show was very funny and entertaining.
His music was excellent.
Excellent musicians and a very good selection of works!
The ensemble was professional and did a very lovely job!
Fabulous feeling as Christmas feelings was in our hearts - can surely recommend if you like classical music
The performance was outstanding - all performers were great. The venue was very good . Recommend to see it
Le concert a été très agréable malgré l'arrivée de retardataires en cours de concert. Ce qui n'est pas correct.
great sound. trumpet player fantastic
Though the program was slightly different than advertised (billed as a girls choir) it was very enjoyable. Some of the arrangements were slightly different than traditional but that was a welcome change. The chorus, the choirmaster and pianist were all clearly well-trained and well-rehearsed. Enjoyed the humor that was used throughout by the choirmaster and involving the audience at the end as well.
Très bons musiciens mais plus difficile d'apprécier totalement le concert à cause du froid.
Superbe musique. Aucune critique à faire.
Most enjoyable evening. The singers were extremely talented and the conductor with his interaction with the audience injected an element of fun.
Great event - could have listened for another hour.
The Suk Chamber Orchestra is one of my favourite chamber orchestras. Their performances are always technically excellent and made even more enjoyable by the fact that the musicians obviously love playing together. Performing without a conductor means that they constantly interact with each other and this makes the music both fresh and exciting. The orchestra's repertoire is always interesting and this concert was no exception, with a mixture of both contemporary and classical music.
The two musicians and singer were extremely talented. The singing was as good as the West End or Broadway - as were the pianist & sax player. There have been some negative reviews on the site; however, based on 23 December performance, the reviews are 100% wrong. Go see them
Musiciens virtuoses et salle agréable: bonne acoustique, bien chauffée et belle.
The lead dancers performed GREAT. The other dancers were subpar.
A warm and wonderful experience with very talented artists who engaged with the small and appreciative audience. Highly recommend!
Enjoyed concert but expected the Christmas Concert description to have been reflected in the actual music content of the programme.
Enjoyed the setting for the concert and the musicians were good
Un moment magique dans un magnifique cadre
Absolutely delighted to have had the opportunity to attend this event. It was so beautiful listening to the live music. A good mix and well worth the hour of our time.
Artists were brilliant. Thank you!
Le ballet était très moyen, 2/3 danseurs dansaient bien, mais l'ensemble était très moyen, et les moments importants du ballet n'étaient pas mis en valeur. La fin proposée ne fait pas partie des fin proposées en général, qui sont des fins tristes. Avec une troupe moyenne, sur une bande son qui ne rend pas comme un orchestre, on ne propose pas des pris comme cela. La prestation valait la moitié moins
Tres bonne accoustique dans ce lieu très baroque tout à fait adapté à ce repertoire. Prestation de qualité, plublic respecteux même si pas forcément connaisseur. Je recommande! (Attention à ne pas vous tromper de lieu, il y avait au moins 3 concerts à ce même horaire au clementinum)
Highlights of famous classical composities, performer by excellent musicians with passion for the music in the magnificent architecturale setting of the Klementinum Mirre Chanel.
It was great. Enthusiastic artists doing what they love. Nice sampling of great music works.
We can't fault anything with last night's performance...the venue was spectacular, musicians were brilliant and the choice of pieces was intriguing and interesting. Coming from Australia, we had no previous knowledge of Teml, Martinu or Suk so we found the program musically challenging and exciting. We weren't sure if the gentleman who was called up on stage was the artistic director or the composer but all kudos either way.
Thank you for such a wonderful night of music...exactly the experience we were hoping for and thinking we would not find in a sea of Vivaldi and Mozart!!
Fantastic experience at the Black Light Theatre! I really enjoyed the event -
fascinating staging, very professional actors engaging with the public and found out the performance to be creative, fun and every aspect of it taken care of. I'm very glad I did this during my stay in Prague and will be recommending it to friends and family. Well done!!!
Both orchestra and conductor did a really good job performing works by Jan Václav Stamic. But the highlight of the eventing was Sinfonietta Giocosa by Bohuslav Martinů. I was completely stunned, never heard better rendition of it.
This was truly not a performance to earn money from the tourists abroad! The excellent musicians really surprised us (we have had taken part at the other performances in Prague so we can compare), very well made play list (changing organ, vocals, violin alone or in duets), heated seats! We can really recommend
the event as a high-quality mucical performance on the world class level.
The musicians were talented and energetic--the soloist, the base and the first violin stood out as excellent. The program of music was chosen well, the combination of Spanish pieces and Jewish traditional pieces fit the venue. The one piece that did not fit very well was the show tune from Evita the movie--not really in the same class and category as the rest of the music, neither Jewish nor Spanish, and it did not make sense with the other pieces in the program.
Concert was delightful.
Excellent musicians, well chosen music!
Brilliant concert by 5 very competent musicians especially the young viola player and the lead violinist for the Vivaldi section which was played with infectious enthusiasm and finished with a variation on a xmas carol, very entertaining all round.
This event was beautiful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our concert. The music was beautiful played by extremely talented musicians. It was breathtaking....thank you.
Not only did the Czech Collegium perform Carmina Burana and Bolero but also performed a mixed of other songs. Enjoyable event!
excellente soiree dans un cadre superbe tres romantique repas de qualite ainsi que la musique
It was my first opera, and it was an incredible experience. I was not sure what I had expected, but the performance was incredible.
First ballet I have attended in a foreign country and found it very enjoyable. No language problem obviously. The venue was tiered well so a good view of the stage from all seats. My only complaint was that it was a bit too warm. As for the ballet/performance, great. Well worth attending if in Prague
Unusual combination of music.
Excellent performance of Bolero.
Trois bons musiciens qui ont joué avec coeur, malgré une assistance très clairsemée. Un petit coup de coeur spécial pour la pianiste.
On aurait aimé être plus nombreux afin de rendre aux interprètes ce qu'ils nous donnaient
There was no interaction between the musicians and audience except to acknowledge our applause. I wish they would have talked a little about the pieces or at least told us what they were playing?
Prestation sympathique, mais son rapport à la grande musique est un peu celui du fast food à la cuisine de gastronome . Néanmoins, une mention spéciale pour "la voix", parfaite.
Wonderful Christmas Concert. The church was beautiful and the musicians were superb... a little cold so bundle up!
This was an excellent programme and the venue perfect for it - it was only a 5minute walk form our hotel. The Dvorak 9th (my Desert Island disc of choice!) was beautifully and lovingly played - it was a supreme joy to listen to it in Prague. To visit Dvorak's birthplace and hear it played by top Czech musicians has been at the top of my bucket list for years - so mission accomplished! And we followed it up with an equally memorable visit to Vysehrad Slavin Cemetery the next day to pay our respects to the musical genius who composed it. With regard to the remainder of the concert programme, the beautiful Mendelssohn concerto was superbly played as was the sparkling Mozart piano concerto. What a splendid evening of sublime music - it was truly worth every penny.
This was a great concert in a beautiful setting.
I didn't rate it as excellent as if felt a bit rushed.
Lovely music, excellent singers and musicians, beautiful room. We really enjoyed the concert.
The meal and venue were both very good, but we expected a small jazz group and not a singing pianist and saxophone player. More jazz less singing required.
It would have been better to live music however the dancers were very good
Musicians excellent and the acoustics fantastic
the petr benes quartet were excellent. the service , food and wine on the boat were very good
This performance was exceptional. From the talent of musicians, to the music selection, to the venue - beautiful and great acoustics. We sat near the front. Absolutely magical.
Great concert in a beautiful venue. The only disappointment was that they turned off the main lights in the church before the concert: the church is really stunning so it would have been much better to keep the lights on during the performance.
Rock n roll musician from Canada... not a huge classical buff or anything but the show was extremely pleasing. The professionalism and great acoustics made for a cheap and thrilling performance! Definitely recommend!
The music was, as expected, first class. To be up close with some of the greatest pieces of music was a joy!
Nice Location, so friendly waiters, great performers and delicious food. The ticket is worth its price.
Musicians were perfect and so able to create a wonderful atmosphere that these 2,5 hrs passed bye much too quickly :-)
Thank u to the musicians, the dancers, the restaurant stuff. U all made us spent a very nice and pleasant evening, full of sweet memories :-)
Nice show. Something worth doing when I’m Prague. When in Rome .......
Don’t expect the world though!!
Beautiful music, it truly touched our hearts ~ Thank You!
Thank you for an exceptional concert! The church is a fantastic place to be with its specific architecture and the altar paintings, and I liked very much the surprise with the heated pillows on a chilly night!
THE MUSICIANS WERE VERY CAPABLE, ALTHOUGH THE PLAYED SOME OF THE SELECTIONS AT TOO QUICK TEMPO
Just amazing. Quirky venue in an art gallery but such an intimate setting. If in Prague you MUST attend one of these concerts. We loved it so much we now have a CD signed by the duo. Thanks for a memorable evening.
I really enjoyed the performance
Highly recommended. Musicians are real professionals playing with no compromise. Very good to listen to and very good to watch them playing. The program is good. We liked Chamber Ensemble a little more than organ (but this is up to your taste, of course).
Enjoyed the concert very much, the piano, violin and the opera performers.
This was an amazing performance of chamber music. It was towards the more expensive end of the activities I paid to do in Prague (300 Czech) but was definitely worth it! Beautiful surroundings and great acoustics in St Martin in the Wall Church. The only downside was that the performers had to twice pause their performance to ask the reception staff member to stop talking loudly. Definitely recommend attending this concert if you enjoy classical music!
When we were let in concert hall already 3/4 full with a group event so we ended up a long way back which was a bit disappointing. Music and venue were excellent though
The variety of the program was very good, of a digestible length for a student group. The trumpeter in particular was really outstanding in tone and variety of genre.
This was exactly what we were looking for. An evening of Mozart in an enchanting setting with beautiful voices.
I really enjoyed the very upbeat music performed with great brio and humor though I was slightly surprised to hear a medley of songs from the musical My Fair Lady included in the program. Gershwin did indeed write a musical that was briefly titled My Fair Lady but the songs our quintet treated us to are from a different later musical the music of which was composed by Frederic Loewe. Not that I'm complaining. It's my all time favorite musical. It's just a point of information.
A very enjoyable evening. A great introduction to Dvorak.
Everyone was very helpful and courteous. An extremely pleasant evening and buying the tickets was very easy. The ticket prices were a fabulous bargain compared to many cities in the United States.
Die Auswahl und Abfolge der dargebotenen Stücke war stimmig.
Die Künstler waren gut aufeinander eingespielt und die Darbietung ein Genuß!
Im Gegensatz zu einem anderen in Prag besuchten Konzert komme ich hier sehr gerne wieder hin!
Impressive light effects, mind-boggling, great variations, funny intermezzos
Mit Petra hatten wir eine sehr kompetente Reisebegleitung die uns viel zur Geschichte der besuchten Orte, und auch darüber hinaus erzählt hat.
Dabei war die Art der Vorträge stets kurzweilig. Mir hat besonders gefallen, dass man tiefgreifende Informationen erhalten hat, ohne mit unnützen Zahlen erschlagen zu werden. Daumen hoch - immer gerne wieder!
Tereza Krippnerova is an absolutely outstanding vocalist and performer. Quirky, charming, beautiful and alarmingly talented! World class/first-class - most certainly top of her game and one to look out for on the television or expect to hear on a radio show. Utterly brilliant!
This was a fantastic experience and in particular for fans of live music. A wonderful atmospheric jazz club and a very well-organised event. The Bohemia Big Band was world class and sounded fabulous!
Wonderdul program. Excellent musicians. Beautiful setting.
Was a shame that there weren't more people there as the venue and the event were great
Amazing concert! I definitely recommend.
It would be better to use the german language. Most of the people in the audience spokes german. German is the most spoken language in Europe and in the city of Prague during the 19th century (during the time of Dvorak) german was the most spoken language in town.
An excellent performance in a lovely Theatre.
Highly recommend this tour. It was great value and really gave a great insight in to the history of Czech Republic and Prague. Very comprehensive and informative but also fun. Our guide, Radek, was charming and really took trouble to answer our questions. The boat trip is a highlight, being in a small passenger boat made travelling up the small canal possible, so you get to see hidden parts of the river bank. We enjoyed it so much, we will take the trip again when we come back to Prague.
Not enough members of the choir to match the size of the orchestra.
As a full time professional symphony harpist, I thoroughly enjoyed this concert, particularly the cohesion of the ensemble with all the tempo changes in the Vivaldi.
A wonderful performance of music and ballet by those at their artistic best. Very much appreciated by adults and children of all ages; my 6 year old loved it.
The entire event was superior from the setting to the skills of the musicians. Hearing such beautiful music in an intimate setting is a unique experience. I recommend this event to others without reservation.
This show is a must in Prague. The whole experience was fantastic, from beginning to end. The service, the atmosphere, the food, and the singers and musicians, such talented people. It's seriously a great show
A great performance of amazing musicians with virtuoso performance in a special location with ideal acoustics.
The performance was magnificent as was the venue. It was a very good ending to our stay in Prague.
Great show, so much fun. The small theater made it a very intimate and cozy experience.
with my friends, we enjoyed very much from the ambiance, meals. the music and the city view. The quality of the service and everything was very good.
We were very happy with the booking procedure and the event.
It was excellent. Thank you to the members of the night.
This was a great event to attend. The small venue made it very personal and the musicians were absolutely first class. Would recommend to all.
Easy to acquire the tickets online. Fast pickup at the office. Very enjoyable evening.
Great concept, beautiful music, talented musicians
Exceptional!!! Unique performances!
Wish I’d had a simple program. It makes get have prevented applause after the first mvt of the Beethoven piano concerto
Great accoustics, virtuoso performers, good organ
This show was a perfect way to cap off my visit in Prague. I truly enjoy good 'blues' music and find it more difficult these days to actually encounter local talent that is not only very talented, but is also an ambassador for the foundation of the blues. The group, and the club also made us feel at home and thus both served as positive hosts to help make our visit a wonderful experience.
Musicians played with verve, enthusiasm and wonderful tecnique. The venue had incredible acoustics which raised the music to a heavenly level. One of the highlights in my life that i will never forget.
We loved the whole live concert! The instrumentalists very skilled and the singers and dancers delightful also. The pianist as also the conductor added humor and fun for all.
the programme of chosen music had lots of variety - some well known tunes and some less so. Lots of technical difficulty for both violinist and organist. The soloists were very talented and it was quite emotional to listen to the emotion put into some of the violin pieces. Both instruments worked well together to produce lovely harmony and balance. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole recital and recommend people to go and see it.
Impeccably performed, great musicianship indeed - thanks Roman Pokorny!!! My students would agree: Nothing compares to a live concert that's played with such touching intensity and improvisational enthusiasm and skill.
I am a visitor from Australia and have booked for 3 musical events in Prague this week. The Missa Criolla and other works was not going to show me much about the Czech music scene, I thought. However, it was a most exciting evening, partly because of the voice and personality of Jose Cura, but also the superb choir and orchestra. The audience response helped to make it exciting too. Moreover I loved the Smetana hall with its elaborate Art Nouveau design and decor.
I loved this performance! It was one of the best things I did in Prague.
Beautiful and unique venue, lovely music, great musicians. Wonderful experience!
Wonderful performance and choice of pieces! Six elements that performed with virtuosity and irony the best songs of Gershwin but also other authors. The best and pleasant evening I spent in Prague!
Wonderful concert in the most beautiful church.
An excellent selection of short pieces that were well played. The concert was the only one we could find during the daytime which was most suitable for us.
great musicians, very creative and highly motivate, gorgeous setting in the Spanish synagogue
Really enjoyed it, great concert and amazing synagoge.
The performance was very good, perhaps a few less people in the choir than we thought, but they did a great job!
You have to sit back and enjoy watching the puppeteers manipulate the marionettes. The show was funny, but it helps to know the plot and famous arias before you go.
The Prague String Ensemble put on an extraordinary performance, playing a mix of well-known and lesser-known (to Americans) pieces. The musicians were all extremely talented and the first violinist was phenomenal.
The meal was excellent!
The quartet were good but not exceptional - the leader looked quite unwell and this may have detracted from their playing. The period costume didn't really add anything and the players looked uncomfortable in their ill-fitting wigs.
Fabulous. The musicians were fantastic, such beautiful music. Would you send me the names of the pieces that were played that night? (September 9, 2017). email@example.com. Thank you
Buying tickets was straightforward and efficient - online payment and collection in person at the Via Musica office off the Old Town Square.
The quality of the performers was excellent and the program was interesting and entertaining. Length of the program at 60 minutes allowed those of us who are interested in the classics but are not avid fans to maintain our interest and appreciation.
All musicians were well presented personally and gave professional performances.
thoroughly enjoyed to concert-musicians and vocalists extremely talented. perfect length of concert . highly recommend!
Too much contemporary music. Wish there had been more baroque.
The concert program was excellent, and the musicians were unparalleled in my experience. The Schumann piece from Scenes from Childhood with the violist Jaroslav Pondelicek was my personal favorite, but all pieces and musicians were excellent. The concert has been the highlight of my trip to Prague so far.
Great guitar concert in an interesting venue.
A bohemian show in bohemia!
First: it is not a "little" dinner. We ate a lot with the 4 meal package. By the desert we were full! Dinner was very good as expected.
Classical , perhaps more swing.
Very enjoyable show.
Beautiful setting and the musicians were absolutely marvellous
We thoroughly enjoyed the performance by Jan and the choice of compositions chosen for the concert.
I loved it! Actors are amazing and the whole show is very good. It's composed of short scenes, all of which are pretty fun. A good intro to black theater in an independent venue in the heart of Prague.
This concert was excellent. I loved the repertoire and the artists performing were really good. Thank you for making the end of our Prague stay memorable.
A beautiful concert in a lovely setting. Three very talented women.
Wonderful music in an historic and incredible setting.
Thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful concert. Music was enthusiastically played and the acoustics of the hall are outstanding. It was a special privilege for us from the US to be able to hear such well played musical scores. Thank you for this opportunity.
Our guide was truly passionate about the history of Prague and was extremely knowledgeable. We enjoyed the tour very much and recommend it to anyone planning to visit Prague.
I think program is well selected and we enjoied Bohemian music at their birth place.
Setting was beautiful and muscians were incredible. This was one of our most memorable experiences in Prague.
A lovely selection of works highlighting the the best of each piece. The singer had a wonderful voice and the acoustics in the church were great! A great way to spend an evening out
The show was good. There were some classic tunes played. I liked that they played some faster music instead of only slow music.
Good food and excellent service. Piano and saxophonist very good . Singing not really as good since she is singing in a foreign language so phrasing not good. Had a lovely time and would recommend the evening.
It was a very delightful night, being surrounded by centuries of history.
It is only the second time I have been to the ballet so I am certainly not an expert, but personally I enjoyed it very much. I understood the story the ballet was trying to tell. The venue was quaint. The performers were excellent. Very impressed and I would recommend to others.
It was very exciting to participate in such concert.
This is my first but not the last.
It was an excellent show to understand the culture of puppetry and marionette the Czech are so good at. The puppet masters have also tried pepper some humour to script, which can be hilarious at times. I would recommend going for one of these shows for an all-rounded Prague experience. Other than this, I would recommend reading up a little on the synopsis of Don Giovanni just before attending it, as it'll help one appreciate the puppetry much better.
Nice music, but missed some comments/introductions between the sections. Felt a little impersonal.
The setting was beautiful. The program was perfect for a vacation evening for classical music lovers. The musicians were wonderful and the acoustics great. It was a thoroughly enjoyable concert.
Incredible concert, very strong performers, to the best of my understanding.
Very funny and imaginative suitable for kids and adults alike.
Very well done theatrically
The program was really for tourists... a best off of classical music! But quality was really good, what a joy to be able to listen to music!
Absolutely beautiful performance.
Outstanding performance. Great program with amazing artists. Thank you....enriching experience
The concert was fabulous, in every way - the venue is spectacular, the music was delightful, and the performances were outstanding. The double bass player and the soprano were particularly excellent. It proved to be a marvelous way to spend time in a magnificent setting, soaking up all facets of the awe-inspiring space, and a fitting ending to our visit to Prague.
This concert was a nice combination of string quarter mixed with organ toccatas. The organ is powerful, the space is exceptional, and the musicians were excellent.
Beautiful music by a very talented chamber orchestra. The solos by the organist and violinist were breathtaking and the young soprano was incredible.
Dear Prague Ticket Office,
I and my family attended the concert of vocalists and the North Czech Orchestra at Smetana Hall on Friday evening, 11/8/2017. In every respect the concert was enjoyable and memorable; we were very happy to have chosen this one over other music options available during our few days in Prague.
As background, our family regularly attends opera, especially at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and also symphony. We are reasonably well acquainted with Czech opera, particularly Smetana’s The Bartered Bride, Dvořák’s Rusalka, and the major operas of Janáček. Sadly, these wonderful operas are performed only infrequently in the USA.
We were hoping to attend a staged performance of a Czech opera in one of your opera houses, or, if not Czech, at least Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Estates Theater. Unfortunately all theaters were closed this summer.
In planning our trip, our criteria for choosing your musical event over the other musical options were first, that the concert contain music by Czech composers, preferably opera, but orchestral compositions were most welcome; second, that the concert have a full orchestra, not a reduced ensemble; third, that the performance was at a dedicated concert hall.
Your concert was the only one to fill these criteria. Our fourth criterion, that the several performers should be excellent, was met by all your artists.
It is good to list these characteristics (full orchestra, concert hall, program) in your promotional material because these characteristics are important. Thank you!
The vocal selections by non-Czech composers (Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Bizet, etc.) were welcome, well performed, and therefore entertaining, but I was most moved by the selections from The Bartered Bride and Rusalka, especially by the two arias from Bride not actually listed on the program!
Members of the audience were mostly tourists, many in large groups; as we did, they probably booked the concert in advance. One can assume that the actual content was less relevant in their decision, just that it be operatic (vocal), orchestral, and professional. By this I mean that removing, say, Bizet’s Carmen from the program would not make a difference.
But some additions might. Experiment with your programming: my guess is that increasing the amount of Czech opera (or orchestral selections, Vltava, for instance) for some of your concerts might attract more persons like myself who deeply desired to hear Czech music performed by the people of Prague themselves, but not, at the same time, turn away tourists.
In one concert add the overture to The Bartered Bride, in another maybe add the duet of Karolina and Anežka from Dvě vdovy or the final prophecy from Libuše or Marina’s Mazurka from Dvořák’s Dimitrij or maybe the final duet from Janáček’s Jenůfa or the love duet of Kata and Boris from Kát’a Kabanová, etc. Maybe every third concert is more Czech, the other two Czech, but also more international, Verdi, Puccini, Mozart, etc.
You have a wealth of wonderful music which is rarely performed outside of the Czech Republic. It’s safe to assume that some opera lovers look forward to hearing your music specifically. In the summer, with all of the opera houses closed, you have no competition. We thank you for the wonderful experience. The Sehulsters, Stamford, CT.
Very nice one hour concert , the singers and organist were professional and polished . Great way of o spend a evening .
I enjoyed it. It was fascinating to see the lights being used to tell a story. I wish the person explaining the technique at the end translated it into English. Also, the romantic end to the story is a bit corny but that's just my taste.
One of the finest representations of Vivaldi's seasons I've ever heard.
Excellent tour. Mark was fantastic. He was funny very personable and knowledgable.
So nice music 10 times more than I expected!!
Terrific, foot-stomping stuff. Lusty vocals with a high voltage all around performance. Great evening!
Very good programme
I've been to several local concerts, but this is the one I always bring my visitors to. All the musicians are wonderful, but the Lecian brothers are astonishing. The Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace is gorgeous, and unapologetically faded. It feels as if you have slipped into the palace secretly for an evening of magic.
This was something very different for us to do in Prague - and could be classed as very touristy perhaps. However it certainly didn't feel like that. The setting was lovely in an elegant upstairs salon at Café Mozart, right opposite the Astronomical Clock - indeed we were actually level with it in the room. Service was good and very discreet, which didn't impose on the music at all. The dinner was excellent quality and with an ample selection to choose from. Without exception all the courses were delicious - the filet mignon was a particular highlight. The welcome drink of Bohemia Sekt (Brut) was lovely and we ordered a bottle to accompany the meal. This was excellent value and seemed perfect for the occasion. The music was played by a talented quartet of musicians who played a great selection of well known classical/operatic pieces and a more modern classic from Phantom of the Opera, which fitted into the repertoire well. The meal was quite leisurely with a short break part way through. Perhaps the only thing that I could suggest would be to include tea or coffee into the set menu as well. However this was a truly delightful evening & one I would recommend.
Very good concert and soloists, mainly the soprano. Good choice of music pieces. And also in a beautiful room, with a good acoustic.
I have experienced very spleandid and exciting performance. I was very satisfied with the performance.
The show was nice. The dancers came among visitors to make great interactions.
I have never written a review before but this fantastic concert prods me to rise to the occasion. I have attended many professional and semi-professional concerts in the US and I honestly did not expect much from a tourist concert like this one. WOW – was I wrong!!! This event was the highlight to our weeklong visit to Prague
The venue was a little aged. I think it would be a decent place to hold this sort of event if there was just better lighting but a full renovation is really needed. The size of room is intimate. We were fortunate to get seats in the front row, I would recommend getting tickets for the front section. Being only a few feet away from such talent was a once in a lifetime event. The performance becomes personal because they are so close to you – you see the effort, the intensity and the pure, raw talent. I was on the edge of my seat for the duration.
The performances were simply exceptional. There were three soloists, all were remarkably talented and all three deserve center stage at big-time events. The mezzo soprano was spectacular. I am not an opera fan but it really brought tears to my eyes…such beauty. The violin and cello soloists I think are brothers and were also just exceptional. These are not glorified street performers – they are definitely the real deal who gave incredibly energetic performances to our small audience. Finally, the backup quintet was very, very good. It was nice hearing the base in these pieces, it provided a nice balanced sound.
The program was short (one hour) but very engaging. The only thing I would suggest is to have the violin and cello soloists take a run at Humoresque (in the mode of Perlman and Ma). It would make a great Dvorak/Prague encore. For these guys who grew up with Dvorak it could be boring but I would have loved to see that piece played by these two immensely talented musicians, they would tear it up. If not Humoresque, then La Musica Notturna Delle Strade Di Madrid by Boccherini. Either piece would be fun way to close the show, they are my favorite pieces for cello and violin.
Terrible venue!!! Terrible seats with no comfort at al!!!
Top performer with a good choice of works. Right amount of time for the performance
Excellent peformers, especially the violin solist in 4 seasons and the organ player. All in all very good value for money
Enjoyable evening, beer pleasant tasting, food really good, entertainment great mixed program well compared and executed. Fun evening.
Interesting mix with a good orchestra and a very good soprano.
Very good introduction to Prague with a knowledgeable, friendly, guide.
Very good organ, very good acustics, interesting program
Well worth the price. Dinner was excellent and the musicians were very skilled. Overall great experience.
What an exemplary show! We are so happy we were able to see the Black Light Theatre production of Aspects of Alice. It was different, exciting, and fun. The fact that the cast members interacted with the audience and brought children up on the stage was great. The seats were comfortable. All in all, it was an experience not to be missed.
Was very good and the Entertainments excellent
It would be great if someone could introduce the performer and the songs they performed.
The musicians were very good!
The place is wonderful for classic music
The places we sat, weren't good, because we just could hear the music. The tickets were the cheappest, but if there's a place that you can't see who is playing, I think it should better not be sold!
The staff could be more polite with the public. Sometimes they were a little bit rude.
It was a splendid performance. The marionette-masters were very good at their job. They even gave us a good laughter several times! We were 2 adults and one kid (6 years the same day) who had a really good time!! Thank you very much!
The highlight of our stay in Prague. The concert was wonderful.
It was a lovely performance!
It was an amazing concert, with a great program. We really enjoyed the selection of the pieces, the atmosphere and the professionalism of the musicians.
Stunning. The chapel is a beautiful and acoustical delight. Lovely program delivered with enthusiasm and competence
fantastic musician - good sound and good voice - they engaged the people to join the show dancing and singing - i had a very good evening with my wife - we enjoyed the music
Fantastic show! The place, the concert, the sound and the singer were amazing! If I come back in Prague, I will reserve again a concert like this one!!!
Good show. Very entertaining. 7 actors, all under 25. Probably closer to 20. Very talented. Glad we had an opportunity to see it while in Prague.
My daughter and granddaughter visited me from the USA and wanted to see a Black Theatre performance. I myself haven't seen it yet, so we decided for the 'Antologia'. We all enjoyed the performance. It was lovely, funny, lighthearted. Good team of young actors. Many thanks to all of them.
Top quality performance from all participants. Particularly enjoyed the soprano.
Only disappointed with the noise coming from a nearby room...another concert.
Very entertaining and good dynamic on the stage.
Unforgettable concert of a very high and professional standard. A must in Prague. Only downside was that some of the dialogue was mumbled so that we did not hear all that was said despite sitting on the second row.
Fantastic singer, what a great show!
Except for the singer who did very well, especially with Mozart Requiem, musicians obviously struggled to cope with the technical complexity of the pieces they were trying to perform.
Why attempt virtuostic pieces (e.g. Paganini variations) in performance if one obviously can't deliver? It would make more sense to stick with more playable repertoire. That would be much more enjoyable for everyone infolved...
And someone should give a hint to the cellist that loud stomping of feet to mark the beat in combination with absent tone in the more challenging passages does not contribute to the performance. It's an easy thing to fix. Getting him to play in tune, and with healthy tone may be harder...
Loved everything about this productions and the venue!
The performers were excellent! It's unfortunate that many other attendees were allowed to distract from the performance by holding phones in the air to record videos and take selfies throughout the entire concert.
Chambre ensemble musicians had great master of their instruments. However, the tempo of the various pieces on the program was much too fast. In certain cases, notes could not be heard because of the much too rapid tempo. It would be better to take out one or two pieces from the program to ensure a rendition more respectful of the composers' intent, and fit the 60-65 minute timeframe. The soprano singer and the organist were a delight.
