The theatre

Orlí Street Theatre / Musically Dramatic Lab is a new theatre venue of the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno.

It contains a high-tech workplace with stage technology, i.e. especially sound and lighting that allows students to prepare for professional careers in an environment corresponding to current world trends. It primarily serves the student musical theatre – opera and musical. In addition to JAMU students and teachers, artists from professional theatres will also collaborate with the Orlí Theatre.

The other JAMU theatre, Marta Theatre Studio, has been one of the most popular small theatres in Brno, with about 6,000 spectators annually; the Orlí Theatre expects a higher attendance still.
Besides the use for curricular activities, the individual theatre premises can be rented for commercial purposes.


Orlí Street Theatre provides a variable theatre space that is designed as a multipurpose hall with a stage, orchestra pit and fly loft, which makes it possible, using the movable elements, to build a classic proscenium theatre, but other spatial solutions that change the ratio of the size of the stage and auditorium and allow a central stage are also possible. The technical equipment is installed so that it can respond to these alternatives. It allows you to set up the floor of the room on the same level with the stage (it can be used for other purposes than a performance, for example conferences, etc.) or place the performance area as well as the auditorium and in any place /with various levels of technical support/. The total area of the room is 21 x 12 m, height is 6,5 m; a more detailed description can be found in a separate document. The total capacity is 150 people, depending on the room layout.

There is a recording studio in the basement, built in as a concrete block flexibly mounted in two floors of the building, so the influence of any disturbing noise is reduced to a minimum. The studio has an acoustically favourable setup and some acoustic properties are variable. All recording technology is separated, both in the music director’s room and in technological areas. The technology in the recording studio is designed as dual, with the ability to record over a traditional analogue mixer, or directly into a recording computer programme. Both methods can be used simultaneously. It is planned primarily for recording and processing in ProTools on Apple Mac Pro, but there are also Steinberg Cubase / Nuendo systems available.

The recording studio also has a unique quality in its top musical instruments that are available, from a grand piano through the legendary Moog and Hammond instruments, from high-end concert harps to modern software solutions, such as the Vienna Symphonic Library.

In addition to the theatre space and the recording studio, the theatre has three rehearsal rooms, a singing rehearsal room, appropriate facilities (changing rooms for four soloists and chorus), box office and foyers on two floors, which also include the audience cloakroom. Social events can take place in historic cellars below or a ground-floor wine bar and cafe with a sheltered garden, total capacity is up to 150 people including the outdoor garden. The kitchen for both spaces provides hot and cold meals, the rooms are equipped with two large bars.

It is also possible to use the foyer area with a fast buffet for social gatherings after events.

The whole theatre is wheelchair accessible with a possible 24hr operation.
