Dvořák’s most lyrical work about an impossible desire cannot find a better place than in front of the Revolving Auditorium. It has been at home there for over half a century. In 2014, it will have been nine years since the last production of Rusalka directed by Josef Průdek was premiered there, therefore it is time to produce a new Rusalka.

..About Open-air Theater with Revolving Auditorium


Revolving Auditorium in Gardens of the Český Krumlov Castle, Archiv OIS 1611 Aerial view of Revolving Auditorium and Summer Manor Bellarie in the Český Krumlov Castle Gardens, foto: Libor Sváče

An experimental scene - there are no other words to characterize this project which was born in the mind of script-writer Joan Brehms, who worked after 1945 as a chief art designer in a České Budějovice theater. The first improvised revolving stage first turned in 1958 so that sixty spectators could see the play Lantern by Jirásek.

The original revolving stage was driven by human power, but not many people knew about it at that time. The first night was such a success that 22 performances followed and as can be seen, it was the first step in establishing a tradition of modern summer seasons in the Open-air Theater.

We must point out that a great deal of the success was guaranteed by the beautiful surroundings of the night Castle Gardens in Český Krumlov and the use of the Bellarie summer manor, the most valuable building of garden architecture in Bohemia. The garden, summer-house and fairy-tale surroundings of the darkened night garden were the first attributes of the theatre's present success.

As time passed, the techniques changed. The present revolving stage is driven by electric motors and can hold more than 650 spectators. But the modernization did not take anything away from the magic of the surroundings where the summer theatrical seasons in Český Krumlov take place. The sold-out performances of the past years speak plainly for these natural theatrical performances. There are some voices in opposition, those who do not like the authentic historical spaces of the Baroque garden to be affected by this "commercial attraction". Some theater critics like to point out the slightly truckling tone of performances, which tned to be chosen with regard to foreign tourists.

This does not change the fact that the revolving stage will be preserved and in the following years will bring the same experiences as used to exist in the atmosphere of ancient amphitheaters. There is nothing else to compare with the performances in Český Krumlov with. Every visitor of the town can find this out for himself. In spite of all the struggles we can claim: "It still turns!"
