Need help to choose entertainment in Prague

I checked website as it was advised in this forum, and there are so many choices that I need help. We'll have three nights in Prague (May 25-27), and it looks like it's not enough to see everything. I narrowed down our choices to:
Marionette Theatre - Don Giovanni - Marionette
Spanish Synagogue - Bolero
Church of St. Jilji - Faust-Man Between God And The Devil

Are any of these selections just a "tourist trap"? If yes, please share your experience, that we can avoid and go somewhere else.

Should we buy tickets ahead of time?

Thank you in advance.

I think they are all catering for the tourist market, but are they tourist traps,no I don't think so.
I am not a fan of the marionette theatre and as I have seen Don Giovanni performed in the Estates theatre in Prague (where Mozart premiered the opera) then everything else will come second to that.
there are many other performances that I would consider tourist traps usually held in smaller churches with a few second rate musicians and singers doing an hour long show for 1000kc or more per person.
if you are happy with the price and lenth of concert then go for it ,it is your vacation and if it is something you will like then go for it.
