This futuristic building just next to the National Theatre is easy to spot because of its all-glass façades. It looks quite out of place beside the neo-renaissance-styled National Theatre. However, it is appropriate for the cutting-edge multimedia shows which combine dramatic lighting effects, cinema, moveable screens, props and live actors to create an extraordinary stage show (which they have been developing for more than 45 years). Mime and gesture are the only languages in these shows, so there is no need to worry about not speaking Czech. Book well ahead as this Magic Lantern Theatre is usually booked out very quickly.
