Theatre

The best quality you can find at the National Theatre, State Opera, Estates Theatre.

There is a strong tradition of the special Black light theatre in Czech. Czech young actors gained fame and thou a bit of freedom after playing this "non verbal" extraordinary show at Expo in Brussels 1958, during the communistic times.

Most of the Black light theatres play the show in front of the black background and use various illumination tricks. The actors and dancers have interesting costumes (often partly black) so you can see only dancing legs, or flying arms in the air. If you sit too much in front you can see through the tricks, we recommend the 5-15 row.

There are many Black light theatres in Prague. Be careful some offer very poor quality, "cheesy :-)" performances. These usually use names of the world famous theatre shows or music bands to attract people.

The best quality Black light theatres are: Laterna Magica, Image, Fantastica, Metro, Srnec. It is quite interesting experience and fun for all family.

Prices do not correspond with the quality (expensive, does not have to mean the best).

They had a worldwide success at exhibitions: EXPO 58 in Brussels, Belgium, EXPO 67 in Montreal, Canada, EXPO 70 in Osaka, Japan and with these performances travelled the theatre through the world. Laterna magika is a part of the Czech National Theatre. Director Josef Svoboda was at the beginning of this special medium, which does not use the words, only the combination of film projection and life stage media`s - dance, sound, lights, pantomime, black-theatre e.t.c.

Sarka`s tip: They do not try to be "entertaining for everybody", but deal the strong or even serious topics (Legend of Argonauts, Casanova, Wonderful circus, Gratify), narrating the story with the specific theatre form. If you prefer more intellectual type of the theatre - Laterna magika is the right choice for you.
