Theatre with English subtitles in Prague ...
Švandovo Theatre has introduced a pioneering innovation to enable English-speaking theatregoers to visit its performances being played in Czech. This innovation is the projecting of simultaneous subtitles. In Prague subtitles are used in other theatres, but only for opera performances. The subtitles are projected onto a special screen that is hung under the stage portal to avoid disturbing the theatre stage itself. This means of presenting translation is used in theatres all around the world.
Švandovo Theatre has chosen to subtitle five plays from its repertoire: The Tempest by Shakespeare, Martin McDonagh’s Lieutenant of Inishmore, Tartuffe by Molière, The Marriage by Gogol and Killer Joe by Tracy Letts.
