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.
