Prague Spring Music Festival, you’ll be able to catch it again as part of this fall’s Czech Opera season. Written for Prague by its adoptive son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart it the opera had its original premier in the very theater where it will be performed this fall. The current stark white set and modern(ish) costumes (designed for the Mozart 2006 Prague Festival) aren’t replicas of the original 18th century production, but they make for exciting visuals to an exciting Mozart score.
Seeing this integral part of Czech culture, a part of its living history, in the blue velvet jewel-box of an opera house is a must. And with tickets for Clemenza still available for CZK450 to CZK1000 (that’s about $20 to $50), soaking up history and culture won’t soak up your bank account. Bohemia Ticket (located on the net and off Wenceslas Square) is a good resource for getting tickets.
