Lucie Skeaping visits the Baroque Theatre of Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic, where she is given a guided tour of the auditorium, backstage areas and museum by the theatre historian Iain Mackintosh. The theatre - part of Cesky Krumlov castle - was built in 1766 to celebrate the wedding of Prince Adam von Schwarzenburg, and is recognised as arguably the best-preserved example of baroque theatre spaces in Europe. The original trompe l'oeil painting throughout is quite breathtaking, and the detailed set designs, costumes and working machinery are remarkable. Music is taken from disc, and includes works by Vivaldi, Scarlatti, Rameau, Zach, Myslivecek, Tuma and Mozart.
