Friday, February 11, 2011: Contest!


What do you do while you’re waiting for the performance to begin?

Look up at the ceiling, right?

The ceilings in Prague theatres are incredible. Gorgeous. Unforgettable.

Or are they?

Think you can tell the National Theatre performance hall ceiling from The Theatre of the Estates’? Or Obecní Dům’s? The Rudolfinum? The Prague State Opera?

Go ahead. Try. Identify the ceiling in the picture, and write your answer in the discussion space below, or on our Facebook page (Opus Osm).

Go ahead. We dare you.

And we warn you: this is just the beginning. From time to time we’ll test your ceiling identification skills in our upcoming contests.

So do your homework. Go to plenty of music, opera, and ballet performances and study the ceilings (but only before the program begins, of course).

Then get ready with your answers. Yes, there will be a test. oo
