With its stage parameters and auditorium capacity, it is the most generous theatre space in Prague. After a four-year demanding reconstruction, its operation was renewed by a gala concert at the beginning of 2020.
The State Opera is tightly linked with some of the greatest names in music history, such as composers Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, and Alois Hába, Italian tenor Enrico Caruso and others.

Discover Prague's beauitful spots.
Visit the recently re-opened and newly refurbished grand opera house with a noteworthy history where many world renown artists have worked here making each performance a prime cultural event.
This Neo-classical edifice was built in 1883 by the German Theatre Association as a reaction of German minority in Prague to the opening of the Prague National Theatre. As the New German Theatre it soon gained international acclaim for its inovative repertoire and artistic leadership including such names as Angelo Neumann, Alexander Zemlinski or Georg Szell.
Nowadays, famous operas, as well as pieces unjustly overlooked or unknown in the Czech Republic are introduced in the State Opera gaining the theatre a reputation of one of the best European scenes where you can enjoy watching mainly opera and ballet performances.
