The new production (premiered on 24 May 2024) of Smetana’s penultimate opera to a libretto by Eliška Krásnohorská was directed by Ondřej Havelka, a director with an excellent sense of musical theatre, stage humour and visually compelling storytelling.

The Secret, one of his most beautiful operas, was written in 1877 by a completely deaf composer. The premiere took place at the New Czech Theatre on 18th September 1878 under the baton of Adolf Čech.

Presented in Czech with Czech and English surtitles.

“May we all have enough of it, God’s gift and satisfaction!”

Why doesn’t the auditorium plan always start with the front row?
The size of the auditorium depends on the size of the production or the performing ensemble. For example, at the operas, the orchestra takes the place of the first non-elevated rows. The first row is thus row 9 or 10.
