The actor Igor Ondříček (born 6 November 1971) comes from Prostějov and has been one of the important personalities of Brno theatre for many years. In 1994 he graduated from JAMU in Brno with the role of Fernando de Champlatreux in the then production of the operetta Mam ́zelle Nitouche on mdb boards. In 1994 Igor Ondříček joined the city theatre in Brno, where he remains to this day. Immediately after graduating from JAMU, he also guested at the East Bohemian Theatre in Pardubice (Strakonický dudák, 1994, Divotvorný pot 2006), later he also guested at the National Theatre in Brno in the role of Don Lockwood (Singing in the Rain, 2001) and in prague's National Theatre as Cesar Borgia (Lucrezia Borgia, 2003). A completely different acting experience gave him a guest at the Chamber Theatre At the Table, where he portrayed Macduff in Shakespeare's Tragedy Macbeth. You could also see him at G-Studio in the concert performance of Viva Musical II or Raindrops from Broadway and Viva Broadway Night.
However, he remains faithful to his home stage at the Brno Municipal Theatre, where he has already played a number of great roles, as well as one of his closest and most popular – Cyrano of Bergerac (1997).
A great opportunity for him was Charley's aunt (2007) and a number of other games of world and domestic modernity. Moses in the folk play Moses (2011), Petr Alexandrovich Pahlen in the drama Death of Paul I (2007), Jupiter in Kleist's Amfitryon (2006), Biron in Shakespeare's Vain Love Quest (2001) Ed in The Strange Case with a Dog (2013) etc. We must not forget the legendary French farce Beetle in The Head (1996), which the Municipal Theatre in Brno has had on its repertoire for more than twenty years.
