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 (Rusalka, Carmen) also include ballet (Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake), fairytales for children and plays written specially for the auditorium (Beauty and the Beast).
