A classic black-light theatre performance based on “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll.
A classic black-light theatre performance based on “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. A performance whose imagination, poetry and perfect technical effects have been admired by audiences in more than thirty countries across three continents. It is not an exact stage copy of the book, but begins when Alice stops being a little girl. On the stage, with the help of your imagination, the author enables Alice to go through all the beautiful and sweet stages of growing up, first loves, awakening to adulthood, gathering experience, laughter and tears, happiness and sadness. All against the backdrop of old Prague, its architectural jewels, its rich history and also its role as a crossroads of Christian and Jewish culture.
Before your eyes you will see the Cathedral of Saint Vitus come to life, as it was under Charles IV, you will pass through the mysterious environment of the Jewish cemetery in the Old Town and you will later taste the freedom returned to a country in the heart of Europe, to the accompaniment of Smetana’s wonderful music.
The creative design, the large-screen projections, the animated film produced specially for this performance, the puppets, the unique stage tricks and black-light effects, the wonderful contemporary music by Petr Hapka, the classical music from the My Country symphony by Bedřich Smetana and the Slavonic Dances by Antonín Dvořák and your imagination – all this comes together to bring about the resulting theatre experience, which cannot be seen in any other theatre.
The theater hall opens 30 minutes before the curtain call. Each performance lasts about 90 minutes, which includes a 15-minute break. There is an entry accessible to wheelchairs, as well as a handicap restroom.
Come with us on a ghost tour of Prague – a walk through Prague’s dark past, through narrow, cobbled streets and winding lanes where murderers, alchemists, monsters, ghosts, and spirits once walked.
Our tour will take you to this unique Prague’s underground location, once the Old Town’s prison and torture chamber, and our guides will lead you through the gruesome events that took place there.
