Welcome to the New Stage of National Theatre - Laterna magika, a world famous nonverbal multimedia theatre in Prague!

Legendary project of Laterna Magika is a Czech-unique, a show combining elements of film and live acting performances. 

Classical principles of non-verbal theatre mingle with dance, film images and black light theatre. The audience is drawn into the story by a panoramically projected image, and fantastic scenes surpass the boundaries between fantasy and reality. 
Enjoy the journey to the fantastic world of the Laterna magika, a synthesis of pantomimedance, music, film and black light theatre!

The building of the New Stage of National Theatre, built in 1983, was tailored to the specific requirements of Laterna magika performances. The unconventional edifice, covered by over four thousand pieces of glass tiles, was designed by Karel Prager. The diversely shaped glass tiles, created by Stanislav Libensky, form a distinctive relief which gives the New Stage its characteristic appearance. This unique use of glass makes the whole building an original sculptural work of art.
