Classicism in Prague is forever intertwined with the name of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The most famous theatre in Prague is Estates Theatre (Stavovske Theatre), where in 1787 premiered the most famous version of вЂњDon JuanвЂќ. The theatre was built in 1781-1783, financed by the FrantiЕЎek AntonГn Count Nostitz. In 1798 the theatre was bought out by the Czech aristocracy and middle class. In 1787, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart conducted the very first performance of his own opera вЂњDon GiovanniвЂќ here. When visiting Prague, Mozart often stopped at the classical Bertramka estate owned by Mr and Mrs DuЕЎek.
