Puppet Theater Ostrava
Cut to the Top
A nostalgic exploration into the depths of memories both ancient and recent
Concert performance of songs from the current and past repertoire of the Ostrava Puppet Theater, which have a jazz and blues feel, or not. You will be guided through the evening by the figure of the Unknown, or maybe a bit of the familiar. Depends on how familiar you are with our theater. But if you don’t know, you will.
The Ostrava Puppet Theater is a professional theater institution with three stages (alternative stage, main stage and amphitheater). The Alternative Stage opened in 2011 and presents productions with a more intimate cast and more interactive approach to the audience. The main stage has more traditional themes and execution, and is just plain large (main in this case does not mean more important!). The amphitheater was built next to the alternative stage and is used extensively, especially in the hot summer months, by visiting companies and local productions with a minimalist stage concept.
Each year, the theater stages three to four new productions for different age groups (toddlers, pre-school and school children, teenagers and adult audiences). It also offers a diverse selection of arts and education programs, which grows each year. In every odd year, the DLO also organizes the Spectaculo Interesse festival: this year is the 14th edition of the festival. From 1990 the director was JUDr. Jarmila Hájková and since 2023 the theater has been led by Alena Punčochářová.
