Excellent performance on all aspects! We changed the date and actually we attended it on 24 December 2022. Thank you very much!

As a visitor in Prague, I was truly excited about this opportunity. I was disappointed. The prima ballerina was good but nothing spectacular stood out. The chorus ballerinas were mostly fine, but many were expressionless. The males in the production were poor, however, with the exception of the Clown, who was entertaining. The Prince was awkward, often falling out of turns. We left at intermission, as did many others.

The performance was amazing and the main ballerina was amazing. I enjoyed the music and the customs. The added a bet of comedian element to the show which made it more appealing.

For me and my daughter (13 years) it was the first ballet we have seen. So we are maybe not in position to rate the performance on ballet skills. But we enjoyed the show a lot and we had a great evening. It was really entertaining.

The ballerinas were not technically that good and the theater was way too hot. It was a tourist attraction not a real ballet. I really over paid for it.

Très beau spectacle, quelques imperfections et grosse liberté inappropriée quant à la fin de l'histoire... Entrée du théâtre vieillot et d'un autre âge. Une rénovation et une modernisation de l'accueil du public s'impose

The price was way too high for this event (comparing with National Theatre): - no orchestra - the decoration was a bit damaged (2 candles were not working, one tree was degradeting)

Paulus V. | February 08, 2022 | 13:09 (Tue)

Sorry sorry sorry : last sunday-evening we invited our hosts from Prague to see these so called 'highlights' from the Swan Lake ballet. This has been by far our worse theater experience ever. Please do go to experience this by yourselves : you have no idea how anybody can destroy this beautiful dance event (very disappointing dance capacities and performance -with some exceptions-, horrible over-mimiquing of the story-line, broken decoration, poor costumes and worse) ... i have no further words to describe this performance as very very very disappointing. Yet we have had a lot of fun replaying our experience on the streets of Karlin on our way home afterwards.

Imagine Doncaster Rovers football club playing on a muddy pitch in front of 200 supporters. This ballet was worse. Uncoordinated, dancers that walked over the stage, probably the worst experience I have endured in my 67 years. I have seen 8 year olds dance in more style. Not worth the money, sorry.

Hiu Tung S. | January 16, 2020 | 21:42 (Thu)

The ballet dancers were professional and I enjoyed the show.

Luisa R. | January 03, 2020 | 14:09 (Fri)

A lovely show. Great sound, costumes and good quality dancing. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Emmanuelle C. | December 20, 2019 | 11:06 (Fri)

Ballet was "amateur". Was expecting a lot more for the price. Slightly disappointed.

Rebekah H. | December 04, 2019 | 23:59 (Wed)

Lovely evening watching this. Very pleased we booked.

Jon A. | November 16, 2019 | 07:23 (Sat)

This was a great show to wrap up the evening (or just start)!

Merivan S. | November 16, 2019 | 01:06 (Sat)

Emma M. | November 04, 2019 | 15:41 (Mon)

Lovely performance but had some placement/spacing issues as well as synchronization problems but overall great!

Carla Z. | August 16, 2019 | 07:39 (Fri)

Xenia Lou S. | August 13, 2019 | 14:07 (Tue)

It was well done and the performers were very good. I just think the set could be better and maybe more elegant.

Samantha S. | August 09, 2019 | 10:05 (Fri)

Dancers were largely lovely, but the venue stopped it being a good show

Ian F. | July 22, 2019 | 23:43 (Mon)

Not worth it very disappointing

Alexandra F. | July 22, 2019 | 10:43 (Mon)

Very nice show, really impressed.

Britania L. | July 18, 2019 | 16:21 (Thu)

I loved the ballet. I am very happy that I attended.

Anita M. | June 24, 2019 | 08:25 (Mon)

Carisa S. | April 24, 2019 | 09:38 (Wed)

We loved the ballet itself. However, I missed a complete orchestra and not pre recorded music.

Joaquin C. | April 07, 2019 | 07:12 (Sun)

Very bad performance. Horrible. Please don’t go.

good solist dancers average for the rest of the dancers

Jorge C. | December 02, 2018 | 08:43 (Sun)

Antonio T. | December 01, 2018 | 22:36 (Sat)

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.

Phil B. | November 24, 2018 | 21:56 (Sat)

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.

helen A. | November 18, 2018 | 10:45 (Sun)

Family friendly show.

Ryan C. | November 05, 2018 | 21:30 (Mon)

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'.

Lisa H. | October 14, 2018 | 19:00 (Sun)

Amateur performance and not worth the money.

GIL B. | October 08, 2018 | 22:36 (Mon)

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 ).

Deborah N. | September 30, 2018 | 18:57 (Sun)

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.

GIL B. | September 24, 2018 | 21:56 (Mon)

Amazing preformance, worth every cent

Floor B. | September 17, 2018 | 09:06 (Mon)

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.

Jacqueline H. | September 16, 2018 | 16:04 (Sun)

Excellent dancers. Music quality very good, considering it was not live. Good value production and perfect for a short city break.

Tom C. | August 31, 2018 | 21:44 (Fri)

We just loved the ballet, the performers were awesome, the whole experience was brilliant

Emmanuelle B. | August 19, 2018 | 18:10 (Sun)

Le corps de ballet est de niveau amateur, la chorégraphie peu dansante, l'engagement des danseurs faible également. Très décevant.

Siriluck C. | July 29, 2018 | 07:10 (Sun)

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.

Miriam M. | July 28, 2018 | 09:35 (Sat)

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.

Dawn G. | July 26, 2018 | 00:03 (Thu)

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

Not the best quality

Jorane C. | May 16, 2018 | 22:18 (Wed)

Incroyable !

Olivia P. | May 09, 2018 | 21:49 (Wed)

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.

HANS W. | April 30, 2018 | 07:56 (Mon)

"Average" for the dancing part. "Weak" for the musical part (no live orchestra), for the scenario and for the dressing of the dancers.

Augustin S. | April 15, 2018 | 00:53 (Sun)

Fantastic show. Don't miss it.

The lead dancers performed GREAT. The other dancers were subpar.

pascale M. | December 19, 2017 | 12:57 (Tue)

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

Duncan M. | November 30, 2017 | 19:28 (Thu)

It would have been better to live music however the dancers were very good

Very nice and cute performance of swan lake

Douglas B. | July 05, 2017 | 17:16 (Wed)

Superb dance and production. Everyone was "en pointe". This is the second time we have seen this danced at the Hybernia. Last time, 3 years ago. Enjoyed the show emmensley and will highly recommend to others.
