Construction and History
The construction of the theater was funded by donations from citizens of Prague, and Prague National Theatre was just about to open its doors when on the 12th August 1881 the building was destroyed in a fire. It only took several weeks to raise enough money to rebuild the theater, and just 2 years later Czech composer Bedřich Smetana held the first performance ever at the newly open theater.
