“A full sister of The Bartered Bride.” That is how one of the most popular operas by the famous Czech composer could be characterised. more

V hudbě život Čechů

Slavnostní koncert

Company

Stephen Sondheim / George Furth

Get under the yoke of marriage or remain single? Will Robert find the answer to this question? An intelligent and entertaining musical with lively music, viewing relationships honestly and humorously. Can you recognise yourselves in any of the situations? more

La clemenza di Tito

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“My Praguers understand me.” That is probably Mozart’s most famous statement expressing his affection for the Czech lands and their inhabitants. It was for them that he composed his beautiful opera about Roman Emperor Titus on the occasion of the coronation of Leopold II. more

Tchaikovsky

Anna Vita

A new performance for the Pilsen ballet ensemble tells the story of the brilliant composer’s complicated life, in which the moments of happiness and fame alternate with pain and desire for love. more

Manon

Jules Massenet

The most famous opera version of the story of the fated but unfulfilled love between Manon and the Chevalier des Grieux. In spite of adversities and mishaps, the bond of their love remains strong. more

Candide

Leonard Bernstein

The famous American composer, conductor, and an avid promoter of music Leonard Bernstein is also the author of one opera and several musicals, of which the West Side Story, staged in Pilsen for the first time in May 2017, belongs to the best that has ever been created in this genre. more

Radúz and Mahulena

Julius Zeyer / Josef Suk

The famous poetic fairy-tale drama by the Czech author and playwright Julius Zeyer from 1896 had its premiere staging in the National Theatre in Prague just two years after its publishing. Since then it has become a stable piece regularly acted at various scenes across the country. more

Nutcracker

Petr Iljič Čajkovskij

Ballet fairy-tale based on E. T. A. Hoffmann’s story A Christmas story and a dream about Prince Nutcracker and the Mice comes to life in our theatre at the time of the most festive time of the year. The new adaptation of the well-known classical ballet will celebrate the 130th anniversary since its first staging in the St. Petersburg Mariinsky Theatre. more

Dalibor

Bedřich Smetana

Oblíbená Smetanova opera Dalibor vznikla po Braniborech v Čechách a Prodané nevěstě. Autoři líčí v idealizované podobě příběh z historických kronik o rytíři Daliboru z Kozojed, který byl nespravedlivě odsouzen a uvězněn ve věži na Pražském hradě, později po něm nazývané Daliborka. more

Quo vadis

Sylvie Bodorová

In the theatre season 2021/2022 the opera ensemble of DJKT in Pilsen will present a world premiere of Quo vadis by the Czech composer Sylvie Bodorová, which she had written directly for the Pilsen opera house. more

The Bat

Johann Strauss

Many classical operettas have beautiful music, but the plot is too naive for today's viewer. more

The bartered bride

Bedřich Smetana

Since the first production in Pilsen in 1869, The Bartered Bride has never disappeared for a longer period of time from the opera repertoire and is therefore very well known to our audience. Generations of Pilsen opera singers have matured in the roles in this opera. more

The taming of the shrew

Jan Kučera

'Who better recipe knows how to tame a shrew, they should tell me! I'd be grateful.' more

The merry widow

Franz Lehár

The Merry Widow was the first Lehár’s global success. Without exaggeration, it can be said that every music number in this operetta is a little musical jewel. more
