The Laterna Magika in Prague offers a uniquely Czech theatre experience. Their shows are a dazzling mix of film, visual effects and ballet, with colourfully dressed mime artists adding an emotional edge to performances.
The Laterna Magika shows are a type of black light theatre, and they continue to push the boundaries of this ever-evolving art form. Talented actors and technicians ensure each new production brings with it new themes and ideas.
The Laterna Magika Theatre is a huge glass structure located next to the National Theatre. It was built during the communist era and is a Czech cultural monument. Indeed the building in itself is worth a visit.
Laterna Magika is known throughout the Czech Republic, and many Czechs will want to bring their families to a show at least once. This ensures a mixed audience of Czech people and tourists.
As stories are told visually, with little or no spoken words, the shows are perfect for an international audience of both adults and children (ideally 10 years and over).
Laterna Magika Theatre is located 5 minutes walk from Wenceslas Square and 10 minutes from the Old Town Square and Charles Bridge.
Laterna Magika performances must be booked at least two weeks in advance. For listings and to book tickets: Laterna Magika.
