|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) in the city centre, opposite Municipal House. It is just a few minutes walk from 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.
The theatre boasts good views of the stage from all seating areas and fine acoustics.
Facilities include easily accessible toilets spread around the building, a cloakroom, and several bars that are open 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.
