The highlight of the season - the Czech premiere of Rossini's opera Le comte Ory!

Lock up your daughters, sisters and wives because the young Count Ory is here!

At the moment he has his sights on the lovely Adéle, who, however, does not reciprocate his interest, and to make matters worse, Hotel Formoutiers, where she is staying, is closed to men until the husbands and brothers return to the guests.
