|Karlin Musical Theatre (Hudební divadlo Karlín) in Prague stages some of the city's premier opera and ballet productions.|
The theatre is a magnificent Neo-Baroque building, which opened in 1881. It is the second largest theatre in Prague after the Prague State Opera, with seating for 921 people.

A varied programme of opera and ballet runs from September to June.
