frequently asked questions

In Case of Bad Weather…
If it rains, we’ll move the program to the château granary. This is a little less than 100 meters from the amphitheater.

Disability Cards
Unfortunately, it’s not possible for disability card holders (ZTP and ZTP/P) to receive a discount. During the evening at Nové Hrady, guests move through the château using staircases and navigate the château gardens via lawns and unpaved paths. For this reason, we cannot offer handicap accessible seats for this program. If the performance is moved to the château granary, it will be necessary to go up relatively steep historical stairs to the fourth floor.

How Does the Evening Unfold?
With only slight exaggeration, we can say that the Kučeras, the married couple who own the château, are inviting you to their home for a Baroque soiree. In addition to a personal welcome, this includes a homemade feast by Mrs. Kučera (including venison dishes using Mr. Kučera’s fallow deer), a tour of the château household, and a leisurely stroll through the château grounds, where short performances have been prepared at various locations. Afterward, this whole exciting evening culminates with an opera performance.

Transportation to Nové Hrady
Visitors arriving in their own car have the option of parking in the parking lot directly in front of the château. If you opt to use the Festival bus, it will pick you up at the monument to Bedřich Smetana on Litomyšl’s Smetanovo Náměstí Square at 7 p.m. When entering the bus, it’s necessary to show your tickets to the performance. (The same bus will bring you back to Litomyšl after the performance.)
