Czech National Theatre Auctions Their First Ever NFT

The first ever NFT issued by Czech National Theater is being auctioned exclusively via OpenSea until Monday, October 24th.

Swan Lake, a ballet composed by Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1875–76, is one of the most popular ballets of all time, and it’s a majestic sight, seeing the first soloist of the Czech National Theater Ballet, Nikola Márová in the role of Odette.

The NFT, a photograph by Pavel Hejný, captures a unique moment from the second act of Swan Lake. A white swan, a dark lake and even darker traps and spells… Odette’s first meeting with Prince Siegfried. Can their love break the curse? Will the prince fulfill the promise he made to his beloved white swan, or will he betray and sell his soul? In a single second, the whole fate can be revealed, after all, stories do not have only one level and the endings can be painful. But now – now Odetta still dreams…

It’s a unique NFT, Odette frozen in time. And a remarkable, yet understandable, move from the Czech National Theatre to auction this very first NFT with the aim of supporting the artistic ensemble of the National Theater Ballet. They’re not only bearer of the national cultural heritage, a jewel of the Czech art scene, but very often they’re also a pioneer of new directions.

The work was created with the contribution of the Průch family from Malá Strana and is now on auction on OpenSea until October 24, 2022.

It is also showcased inside the SOPRG gallery in Somnium Space Metaverse at parcel 3250.
