In 2000 Prague was the Cultural Capital of Europe. Anna Chromy’s mother came from Prague and her childhood memories of sculptures originated here. It was fitting that the city honoured Anna with an exhibition of her musicians and the Don Giovanni Group of sculptures in front of the Stavovské divadlò opera house, where Mozart’s Don Giovanni had its first performance on Oct. 29th 1787.
Following the exhibition, the Cloak of Conscience was installed as “Commendatore” permanently at the entrance, followed two years later by the “Czech Musicians” fountain on a nearby square.
