Dear festival visitors:

It is our hope that you will come away from our festival with only positive experiences and that each visit will go smoothly. Please allow us to give you a few tips that will help you to avoid any inconveniences and to enjoy the festival programme fully.

·        We will be opening the concert venues an hour before concerts begin.

·        We recommend that you arrive sufficiently in advance, ideally at least 30 minutes before the concert begins. We always close the hall 5 minutes before the beginning of the programme. If you arrive late, you will be seated only during applause or at the interval. Please remember that under such circumstances, you will be given a currently available seat to avoid disturbing the other concertgoers. For the second half of the concert (after the official interval), you may take the seat that you have purchased.

·        We will seat audience members from the Youth Club in vacant seats after the third bell before the concert. When you arrive at the concert venue, please check your belongings at the cloakroom and gather at the designated place, usually the foyer of the concert venue. Please present your valid ISIC ID card together with your ticket when it is checked.

·        Intervals last 20 minutes.

·        In the case of concerts broadcast live on Czech Television, we close the hall 10 minutes before the concert begins, and the interval is shortened to 15 minutes.

·        Taking photographs and making audio or video recordings at concerts is forbidden.

·        Unless stated otherwise, the dress code for concerts is dark suit, i.e. evening attire. For men, this means a dark suit with a collared shirt and a tie. Women should wear a dress of appropriate length or evening attire. At the opening and closing concerts, black tie is recommended. Men are to wear a dinner jacket (tuxedo) with an evening waistcoat or cummerbund, a black bow tie, a handkerchief, and a white dress shirt. Women are to wear an evening gown (long dress). A dark suit is also acceptable at these concerts. At the debut concert, however, informal dress is permitted.

Unfortunately, security has become a topic of discussion around the world, and the Dvořák Prague Festival wishes to draw attention to its security measures at concert venues and in the halls. Our primary concern is for your safety as well as the safety of the performers and our entire team.

·        Please check any larger belongings in the cloakroom along with any items that could impede other audience members in the hall. For security reasons, you will not be permitted to enter the concert hall with such items.

·        Bringing weapons, sharp or pointed items, or objects of any kind that are seen as dangerous or could be used as a weapon into concert halls is forbidden. This includes selfie sticks.

·        We ask visitors to carry a valid form of identification to identify themselves if necessary.

·        For security reasons, we ask for your understanding concerning any spot checks of persons and their belongings.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We hope you enjoy this cultural experience.

The Dvořák Prague Festival Team
