Theatre plays

Cardinal´s Ring

first performance in April 2002: Mikulov became famous mainly thanks to Moravian Prince, Cardinal Franz Dietrichstein (*1570 – †1636). The Prince contributed a lot to urban, commercial, craft and mainly spiritual development of the town to the main Moravian settlement. The Cardinal brought Capuchins to town, contributed to extension of Piarist education, and made Mikulov a major political centre and pilgrimage destination.

Thanks to the Actors´ Union the Cardinal sometimes visits the town to inspect its progress after the many centuries...

Liberation of King

first performance in March 2003: In 1403 the armoured squadron of the Mikulov castle liberated King Venceslas IV from Vienna prison. The event has been commemorated every year in the context of the Pálava vine harvest.

White Lady

first performance in March 2004: Hardly anybody knows that Lady Perchta, also called White Lady (*1429 – †1474) lived most of her unfortunate life in Mikulov, where her father Oldřich of Rožmberk married her in a very young age with marauding knight and fighter Jan of Liechtenstein. Despite the unhappy marriage Lady Perchta also spent a couple of nice moments in Mikulov, when she secretly met with her child lover Peter in the chateau garden several times.

In the course of the year the visitors and tourists coming to Mikulov can see White Lady returning to the chateau from time to time.
