Daniel Tesař belongs among the best Czech lighting designers and can be compared to his foreign colleagues, although he has not studied this subject. Since 1999, he has been fully devoted to theatre and event lighting as a lighting designer, technical manager, to supplies and provision of equipment. He currently works as a lighting designer for major domestic venues (the National Theatre, the State Opera, the Estates Theatre, Ponec Theatre, Archa Theatre, NoD etc.), prestigious events in the Czech Republic and abroad, collaborates with renowned choreographers and directors in the field of dance, opera and drama. He is a co-owner of a business company that is perhaps best known in this field.
For many younger colleagues, he is an embodiment of a mentor and always willing advisor, either in the field of technical or creative issues.
