There's a bewildering array of entertainment in this eclectic city. Prague is now as much a European centre for jazz, rock and post-rock as for classical music
. It's a changing scene too. These listings may well be out of date by the time you read them. For reviews, up-to-the-minute venues and day-to-day listings see Prognosis or the Prague Post.
Good Czech-language listings magazines are the weekly Program and the monthly Prehled. These don't catch everything so keep an eye on posters and bulletin boards.
Classical music can be heard at the National Theater, the State Opera, the Estates' Theater and the Rudolfinum
, a neo-Renaissance concert hall. An annual highlight is the Prague Spring Festival
of classical music (from mid-May to June).
The Lanterna Magika
is a multimedia sound-and-light show. Jazz and rock can be found at many clubs.
