Received the list of optional concerts/performances for the Nov.12-19 period. So many good choices. Has anyone else made decisions on what to attend?
David Andrews Nov 06, 2015 at 07:46 PM

I have a ticket for Rusalka at the State Opera on November 11, and Die Zauberflote at the Estates Theater on November 15.
Elaine Murphy Nov 09, 2015 at 01:31 PM

Hi David, I'm hoping to get Opera tickets from concierge at hotel!

Polly Harrington Oct 31, 2015 at 04:19 PM

Is anyone else arriving on November 22 and planning to take the hotel shuttle?
Sharon Clarke Nov 05, 2015 at 07:17 AM

Yes. My husband and I are to arrive at the airport about 2 pm.
Polly Harrington Nov 15, 2015 at 08:35 PM

I arrive at 8:20am, so I will look forward to meeting you at the hotel.

Gary Green Sep 23, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Hi! I'm going on the October 10, 2015, trip. I'm a semiretired teacher from Berkeley, CA (flying from San Francisco). I'll be looking for participants who would like to get together in small groups to sample Prague restaurants on the "independent" evenings...and participants who would like to occasionally sightsee or attend events together. Look forward to meeting everybody! --Gary

David Andrews Sep 16, 2015 at 04:12 PM

I'll be flying from Montreal on November 9 for the November 12 program, staying two nights at an Airbnb in Prague. If you are looking for a roommate, let me know. Also, the public transit system in Prague is great, and free for those 70 and older. Bus 119 from the airport connects with the green metro line at Nadrazni Velaslavin. Transfer to the yellow line for Andel, near our hotel.

Kamileh Sep 14, 2015 at 04:13 PM

Going from Boston on Oct 3! Anyone else going?

Allison Jones Sep 07, 2015 at 04:38 PM

Thanks for all your comments. I think I will try to get tickets for opera and sort out the rest when we arrive. See you soon, Toni!

Toni Burnett Sep 04, 2015 at 03:41 AM

Allison, my husband and I will be on the same Prague trip. We are also interested in classical music. I found a web site www.pragueexperience.com that lists many concerts by month and day. Very useful. I don't know if we will purchase tickets from them, but a great source. Looking forward to our trip and meeting you.

Allison Jones Aug 29, 2015 at 08:01 PM

We are in the Sept 19 trip. I would like to hear as much music as possible. Should I make reservations for opera? Suggestions for concerts anyone?
Virginia Coombs Aug 31, 2015 at 08:31 AM

I would arange your opera tckets and orchestra tickets ahead of time. But for the concerts in the local churches I found it possible last September to buy those at the door. There are so many opportunities that you can hear something each night! Enjoy
Gloria Smith Sep 01, 2015 at 04:34 PM

Allison, I did the Prague trip in 2012. i was able to buy opera tix through the hotel. Prague has so many music options. I suggest you don't overbook as there is so much to do.
Peggy Todd Sep 03, 2015 at 07:24 PM

I was on the same trip as Gloria. The hotel arranged opera tickets and also church concerts. Although our trip was in November, I don't think you have to do too much pre-booking. Enjoy your trip - it was one of the best I've ever been on!
