The Slovak National Theatre is an absolutely wonderful building that is a landmark piece of architecture located in Bratislava's most famous square name Hviezdoslavovo Namesti. A beautiful facade,the beauty of the building is apparent especially when illuminated at night. With opera,ballet and drama performances it's a very popular theatre but as I have little interest in opera or ballet I... More

Tickets to opera are reasonable and can be bought online in advance. Nice local experience. Gown and tux not required. Business casual suffices and is what most locals do

We visited this modern opera house near the river Danube and a busy shopping centre Eurovea, near the town centre, to see the opera La Traviata by Verdi. The building itself is amazing, in the front a fountain and plenty pictures and costumes inside. There is a good restaurant too. The performance itself (on 23rd Nov 2016) was wonderful and... More

We saw this at the historic building but it will be shown in the new theatre from now on. The performance was delightful. The corps de ballet were perfectly sychronised and technically excellent. Rudenko was fabulous as Giselle. Myrtha, played by Najdena, magnificient. The second Act was haunting and atmospheric in contrast to the bright and beautiful first half. The... More

We saw the premiere of Giselle yesterday at the Historic National Theatre. It was absolutely brilliant. Wonderful corps de ballet and performances by Maria Rudenko as Gisele and S. Najdena as Myrtha. As good as you would see anywhere in the world and amazingly 20 euros for the best seats. A fantastic experience.

It is a very beautiful piece of architecture.Used to be known as Reduta Palace or Concert Hall. While on a walking tour or exploring the old town you are bound to see this building. One cannot miss its imposing facade.

If you have a possibility, go for a ballet to the old, historical building. It's beautiful from inside.

With my family and friends we come regularly to see various plays, mostly drama and opera. It's always a spectacle. I also greatly approve the option to buy the last minute tickets, which saved our night last time. I can only recommend Silvester or New Year's Eve plays, which are most often comedies, comic operetas (e.g. Die Fledermaus) or a... More

Beautiful old building from the outside and inside it's even better. We've attended opera Nabucco. Staff was very helpful and nice, when you enter the building you can feel the history in the walls. The opera was also amazing, even though we've had the worst ticket and couldn't see much, it was worth it. The atmosphere, the orchestra and the... More
