The Karlín Music Theatre is one of the oldest and most beautiful theatres in Prague

The Neo-Baroque building, completed in 1881, was originally furnished with tables and initially served for circus and, later on, vaudeville performances and cabaret shows. In the 1920s, the building hosted performances given by various theatre companies and operetta performances.

Throughout its history, the Karlín Theatre employed some of the most distinguished Czech artists. During the time of the Nazi occupation, the building was the venue for performances of then closed National Theatre, under the name Provisional Theatre. 
 
After the World War II, in 1945, the director E. F. Burian launched in Karlín the regular operation of the repertoire musical theatre. In 1950, the theatre came under the administration of the City of Prague, and in 1954 became the property of the state and was given a new name: the State Theatre in Karlín. In 1961, it was returned to the City of Prague as the Karlín Music Theatre, and has remained so until the present day.
