Schmopera Says...
"These performances, using the famous 2002 production, sets and costumes of the Czech National Theatre, will be given in the Estates Theatre in Prague, where  Don Giovanni  was premiered under Mozart’s baton in 1787. The Estates Theatre is the only remaining theater in the world where Mozart conducted, and scenes from  Amadeus  were filmed there. Participants in the program will live in the heart of historic Prague, and rehearse daily at the Prague State Opera House and the Estates Theatre."
