frequently asked questions

Bad Weather…
The performance takes place outdoors. If the usually pleasant summer skies aren’t obliging, an awning will take a few minutes to silently roll into place over the heads of the audience. Therefore, the performance will go ahead even if it rains. A few raindrops may fall in spots in Section C, which is why tickets for this section are sold for a discounted price.

Wheelchairs
We want do everything possible to make things easy for people in wheelchairs. Therefore, to purchase tickets, please contact Jitka at nazdravetska@smetanovalitomysl.cz or +420 602 457 338.

Tour of Smetana’s Birthplace
It’s almost as if intermission was created just for visiting Smetana’s birthplace, as it’s directly on the grounds.
