Happy July! In Prague this month? We’ve got a round-up of what’s happening around town. Most theaters go dark in July and August, so no performances at the State Opera House, National Theater and other large venues. No worries though – there should be plenty of fun and sun to keep you occupied all month long!
The Prague Proms International Music Festival is a great answer to those longing for culture in these “dark” theater days. Designed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra; guest conductors and musicians from all over the world perform unique combos in the beautiful Art Nouveau Obeční dům. Through July 22.
For the kid in all of us: Teatrotoc, a street theater festival takes over Kampa Island from July 11-13. Look for jugglers, puppeteers, mimes, storytellers, musicians and more. Excellent outdoor activity for children; but all will discover a bit of magic.
They never actually came to Czechoslovakia, but Beatlemania is gripping the current Prague at the Czech Museum of Music. An ongoing exhibit, the display combines a history of the Beatles and the culture in general of the 60s with how the band influenced a generation in Communist Czechoslovakia. The lifestyle of youth in this period is examined, complete with hippy hairstyles and the unofficial culture and style popular then.
