Presenting the Croatian National Theatre Zagreb

The Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb is Croatia’s pre-eminent and oldest theatre, comprising three artistic ensembles: opera, drama and ballet. From the very beginning, the repertoire of the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb was very rich and various including the world classics, national tradition and contemporary works. Even though it was basically founded as a national cultural centre, the Croatian National Theatre has never stayed closed within itself, but it readily accepted and created diverse cultural links, opening its space to all theatrical cultures and giving guest performances all around the world, from America, throughout Europe, to the Far East. In its 154 years of history, the Croatian National Theatre has given a pleiad  of the greatest artists and writers, actors and directors, set and costume designers, world famous opera and ballet principals, conductors and choreographers.

Every year, the theatre’s programme features at least twelve new productions and around twenty rerun productions, resulting in more than 220 performances per season.

As the leading national theatre in the country, the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb has a diverse programme that stages works by Croatian authors of different styles and eras, as well as classical and contemporary works from the world repertoire.

The Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb significantly contributes to the cultural life of the Croatian capital by broadening and attracting audiences that are increasingly diverse, with some performances sold out months in advance.

The Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb is part of the European organisations Opera Europa, the FEDORA platform and the European Theatre Convention.
