venue / Castle Riding Hall

Due to the golden color of the laminate material that dominates the room’s design – which includes a “tunable” ceiling – the castle’s riding hall has been given the nickname “the Amber Chamber.”

frequently asked questions

Where will I sit?
This programme uses the Castle Riding Hall in an atypical arrangement. The modern stage design of the opera almost eliminates the distinction between the auditorium and the stage. Therefore, the capacity of the space is very limited.

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

Which way to the Castle Riding Hall?
The Castle Riding Hall is located in the upper part of the first castle courtyard near the fountain.
