Said to be the most beautiful of the opera houses in Prague it opened in 1888 for the German stage premiering Wagner’s opera, The Mastersingers of Nurnberg.
It is spacious and luxurious and its neo-Rococo décor is simply breathtaking. The annual Verdi festival takes place here and performances are usually in their original language. Because of the close historical links with Germany a lot of German operas are performed here such as The Flying Dutchman, but from time to time you will also find some English productions.
