|Hybernia Theatre in Prague specialises in ballet productions. Performances include Swan Lake, Romeo & Juliet, and around Christmastime, The Nutcracker.|
Hybernia is situated on Republic Square (Náměstí Republiky), opposite Municipal House, which is just a few minutes walk from both the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square.
Hybernia Theatre opened in 2006 to much acclaim following a major reconstruction project that transformed a former art gallery and customs house into a modern air-conditioned theatre with fine acoustics.
Because the auditorium at Hybernia has been recently designed, there are good views of the stage from all seating areas.
Facilities include easily accessible toilets spread around the building, a cloakroom, and several bars which serve reasonably priced drinks before, during and after performances.
Hybernia Theatre stands on the site of a former Benedictine church. The property was given to Irish Franciscans who were expelled from their country by Queen Elizabeth I in 1630. The Latin word for Ireland is Hybernia, from where the theatre gains its name.
