Read MoreShow Less
The architectural focus of the eastern flank of Hviezdoslavovo namestie (one of the two Baroque main squares gracing Bratislava’s Old Town), the Slovak National Theatre (Slovenské Národné Divadlo or SND for short) is a splendid Neo-Renaissance building. Created by Viennese theater designers Hermann Helmer and Ferdinand Fellner, the SND was completed in 1886 in a time when the Habsburg Austro-Hungarian Empire was thriving and its elaborate pillared, colonnaded façade is encrusted with busts of playwrights such as Shakespeare and Goethe.
Seating for just over 600 in the plush, red velvet and gilded auditorium is in banks of boxes, and the season runs from September to July. The repertoire features a full program of opera, ballet and drama, including such old favorites such as Mozart’s Magic Flute, as well as contemporary performances by the Dragon Kungfu Dance Company.
An innovative new adjunct to the Slovak National Theatre opened in 2007 on the banks of the Danube; the seven-story SND New Building is of gleaming glass and marble, seating 1,677 in its three auditoriums.
The theater's box office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and from 12:30 to 7 p.m., as well as on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon and for one hour before any performances. It is open on Sunday for one hour before performances as well. The SND New Building Box Office is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and has the same weekend hours as the box office of the Slovak National Theatre. Ticket prices vary between €5 and €30.
