Belgian choreographer Jan Martens and seventeen performers draw us in in an instant. It doesn't matter if we are eighteen or seventy-one years old just like the youngest and oldest performers on stage. Each one is different, with a unique voice and own experiences and skills, yet together they form one entity. The protest songs in the background remind us of the challenges we are forced to face, yet the production is a source of hope and infectious energy – not only thanks to the grandiose finale, which does not let us sit still.
Check opera and ballet in Prague.
Hybernia Theatre and its location have a rich history. In the 14th century, the emperor Charles IV built the St. Ambrosius monastery here which gradually fell under different orders, the Benedictines, Minorites, and finally in the 17th century the Irish Franciscans.
In late-18th century the monastery was shut down on the order of Emperor Joseph II and the church was deconsecrated. Still, the place was called „U Hybernů“ (Hybernia means Ireland in latin). The former church served as a customs house, exhibition hall. In 2006 its interior was transformed into a modern theatre hosting mainly musicals, but also ballet, opera performances and jazz concerts.
