Revolving Theatre Český Krumlov

Revolving Theatre Český Krumlov

Visit the grounds of Český Krumlov chateau for a unique artistic experience at the open-air revolving auditorium!

Nestled beside the splendid Baroque theatre at the chateau in Český Krumlov is yet another surprise: an open-air theatre with a rotating stage, situated in the middle of the grounds of the chateau, not far from the Bellarie Rococo summer palace, which serves a backdrop to the auditorium. The idea to utilise the summer palace and surrounding park for an open-air stage originated in 1958 with artists from the South Bohemian Theatre in České Budějovice.
Performances are held over the summer months, and apart from opera also include ballet, fairytales for children and plays written specially for the auditorium. This year, special audiovisual project called The Double Star Man will start the season of the theatre with the highest ceiling in the world. All performances offer subtitles in German and English and are also suitable for hearing impaired visitors.
