And if we were to name the places at which Mozart in person premiered an opera of his and which still function as theatres, the one and only candidate in the world would be the Estates Theatre in Prague. The National Theatre Opera has proudly cherished this unique tradition for decades.

Perhaps surprisingly, Don Giovanni, the “opera of operas” created for Prague, has to date never been staged at the National Theatre by a non-Czech director.

Accordingly, the new production of the Mozart opera at the unique Estates Theatre is actually at variance with the long tradition – this time, an adaptation of Don Giovanni was created by the Swedish-Norwegian stage director Alexander Mørk-Eidem in tandem with the German conductor and Mozart specialist Karsten Januschke. Co-production with the Nationaltheater Mannheim.
