Budapest Operetta Theatre
Together with Vienna, Budapest is the capital of operetta and visitors can see for themselves the high standard of operetta performance.
The Operetta Theatre building used to give home to an Orpheum; the Budapest Operetta had moved here in the year 1923. Full reconstruction was carried out between 1999 and 2001.
The most advanced European stage machinery was installed, the beautiful original ornamentation was restored and the earlier rows of boxes in the circle were also rebuilt. Today the theatre has 917 seats and the auditorium is air-conditioned.
Their primary goal has always been the preservation of traditions and finding new artistic solutions.
