At the end of our tour around Prague we had a pleasure to see this wonderfull show. It is a mixture of ballet, music, lights,fountains, fire and even a projection on water. It is so colourfull that you simply do not know where to look to not miss anything:) I didn't know what to expect when we got there... but i have really enjoyed every minute of the show. I've never seen anth like that. We got to see G. Bizet's "Carmen" and it was a totally new experience (see an opera as a ballet).
I put on short video of this show......but it is nth compared to life performance.
I recomend it to everyone.
Enjoy the show:)
A kind of entertainment I'm not very fond of.
Firstly the queues: hundreds of people queuing to enter, when they start to let people in, the whole crowd rushes at once, people elbow their way to get the best places round the fountain. The fountain and the auditorium show signs of fatigue; people sit on long wooden benches arranged in rows around the fountain pool. Not very comfortable as there's no support for your the back and you can get squeezed between people if too many decide to sit on your bench.
The show may be interesting as it's designed to appeal to all your senses: it combines water movement with light and sound. The fountain pool is quite big, water shoots up at different angles from hundreds of pipes, some of them big, some small, some quite tiny, the sequence of movements is coordinated with the music you can hear at the same time - famous pieces from different musicals: Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Cats... The fountain is lit from the inside of the pool, the water radiates different colours, from white, through creamy, red, purple, and blue, all to the rythm of changing music.
That's all very interesting - for the first 5 minutes or so. Then the sequences become repetative, there's nothing more to surprise you. In spite of all those changing lights and passionate music the show seemed to fall flat. 10 minutes into the show I was bored and ready to leave. But that's me. I talked to other people and most seemed to enjoy it, some agreed that it was too long but the overall opinion was favourable. I guess you have to judge for yourself.
Krizik Fountain offers an enchanting show of music, water jets, colours and ballet. Music is selected from world's famous compositions and changes hourly.
Tip: Choose not a rainy evening and go to the show when is completly dark outside!
The Krizikova fontana (Krizik Fountain) dates from 1891, and its illumination was designed by Czech inventor Frantisek Krizik. It was renovated in the 1990s and is now used for light shows accompanied by both classical and contemporary music in summer.
There is plenty of musicals held there during the summer. It's amazing to watch the fountain changing colors and watch musical there at the same time. The atmosphere is so special, you'll never forget the feeling. It is certainly worth to pay a bit extra to see the musical there rather than in the theatre.
It was really relaxing to watch how water, lights and music makes harmony what You can not forget so easely.
I was tired from consert ( LOOK INTO MY TRAVELLOGUE ) when we went there but it was gone within that one hour I watched Kriznikovas Fountain performance.
Do not miss in Prague open air music theatre KRIŽÍK FOUNTAIN / KRIŽÍKOVA FONTANA. The fascinating water and light show accompanied by music and dancing is an unforgettable experience.
This fountain is special because it is a show with music, lights, colors and water.
The fountain moves up and down with the music and the colors changes too.
This is the memory of Prague that I always take with me.
We managed to go one evening when there was a special performance of 'Ma Vlast' A truly magical evening.
