Revolving Theatre in Český Krumlov

Drama, musical or ballet - but above all, the exceptional experience of a performance in the theatre with the highest ceiling in the world. This is what the Revolving Theatre offers to young and adult spectators.

The productions of world-famous authors performed by the South Bohemian Theatre take place in the beautiful natural scenery of the castle garden. The choice of repertoire, the directorial concept, the actors' performances and the original garden scenery will captivate every spectator.

All performances are subtitled in German and English and are also suitable for the hearing impaired. Fifty tablets with subtitling software are available for loan at the box office of the Revolving Theatre.

A little bit of history: The author of the Revolving Auditorium is Joan Brehms, who was the head of set design and stage designer at the České Budějovice theatre after the WWII. The first improvised revolving platform turned for the forst time in 1958, with only sixty spectators. In 1989-1993 a general reconstruction took place, which gave the Revolving Auditorium its present appearance. The new turntable, with two-directional movement provided by four electric motors and weighing 650 tons, has a capacity of 644 spectators.
