Ferdinand and Philippine

Simon Lovermann / Dustin Klein

A historical story of the forbidden love between Ferdinand II of Tyrol and Philippine Welser, taking place in the very heart of Pilsen, reveals, in our ballet adaptation, the secret marriage of emperor’s son and a beautiful bride who was smart and educated but not equally noble.

The connection of our country with the Habsburg monarch, the inequality of the society, and the search for love across the so-called moral standards offer an image all too similar to our contemporary modern era.

The German choreographer and director Dustin Klein, whom we know in our theatre from our staging of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, offers a truthful, humorous, sarcastic, and at the same time kind story of our relations and morale that unites our countries.

Premiere on 14 May 2022 at the Small Scene of the DJKT
