Alfréd Radok

Alfréd Radok

Alfréd Radok (December 17 1914 in Koloděje nad Lužnicí - April 22 1976 in Vienna) was a distinguished Czech stage director.

He worked as the stage director of the National Theatre in Prague in the years 1948 to 1949 and 1966 to 1968. Radok's work belongs to the top of the Czech stage direction of the 20th century. He is often cited as a "formalist" in his work.

With his wife Marie Radoková (1922 – 2003), he had a son David, a stage director, and a daughter Iva (?).

His younger brother Emil Radok (1918 – 1994) was also a director and Alfréd Radok's collaborator.
