Events Bohemia Opera Breaks to Prague 2024

Prague is a city whose musical life can be pursued back to the 11th century. Not only famous Czech composers Antonin Dvorak, Bedrich Smetana, and Leos Janacek composed there but also Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived in Prague and composed his symphony no 38 (the "Prague") in the city, as well as his opera, Don Giovanni. A number of great composers visited Prague after Mozart and Beethoven, as well as outstanding performing artists, including Carl Maria Weber, Fryderyk Chopin, Nicollo Paganini, Franz List in particular, Hector Berlioz and Richard Wagner.

EVENTS BOHEMIA have prepared your week-end break to Prague in great style. Marvelous venues, outstanding performances, excellent hotel and services. The only thing behind your expectation is price.


A Faustian tale in an evocative operatic setting with stunning choral scenes and a fascinating demonic bass title character. Mefistofele is the composer and poet Arrigo Boito’s one and only completed opera. It boasts mesmerising choral scenes, such as the Chorus Mysticus in the Prologue and the Witches' Sabbath in Act 2. What is more, the title role affords a great opportunity for basses, who since the early the 20th century have passed the baton, starting with the legendary Fyodor Chaliapin or the no less amazing Czech bass Vilém Zítek.

FEBRUARY 10, L’ELSIR D’AMORE by Gaetano Donizetti
The buffa L’elisir d’amore, about a marvellous elixir, which isn’t actually marvellous at all, yet serves its purported purpose, has entertained global audiences for more than 190 years.Gaetano Donizetti completed his 40th opera within a mere fortnight. The piece premiered to great acclaim in 1832 at the Teatro alla Canobbiana in Milan.

MARCH 30, LA TRAVIATA by Giuseppe Verdi
This staging of La Traviatta is one of the Prague State Opera´s most popular productions. In this work, based on the novel La Dame aux camelias by A. Dumas Jr., Verdi created the first major opera that deals with contemporary social issues.

APRIL 2 , ARMIDA by Antonín Dvořák
Antonín Dvořák’s final completed piece, the opera Armida, is inspired by Torquato Tasso’s Renaissance epic La Gerusalemme liberate Jaroslav Vrchlický, still the only poet to have translated Tasso‘s gargantuan work into Czech in its entirety, based his libretto on the episode depicting the love story of Armida, the daughter of King Hydraot of Damascus, and Rinald, a knight participating in a Crusade. Despite possessing extraordinary qualities and beauty, in comparison with other Dvořák operas Armida has always been somewhat shunned by theatre-makers.

MAY11, TOSCA by Puccini
Love, jealousy, hate, death – these are the attributes of many operas and so it is with this, the most famous, opera by Puccini. It is set against the background of political strife in Italy in 1800. Dramatically it is once more an opera, which enthrals by its dramatic suspense and scenes imbued with passionate commotion and despair. Puccini’s music is matched to the drama.
