Budapest Operetta and Musical Theatre

The building of the Budapest Operetta Theatre (Budapesti Operettszínház) in Nagymező Street was designed by the Viennese studio Fellner and Helmer. Although a reconstruction in 1966 altered the interior design of the theatre to a great extent, it is still the same 100-year-old chandelier that casts light on the auditorium. Today, director Miklós Gábor Kerényi manages a true musical theatre here, with Hungarian operettas and contemporary musicals on the repertoire in addition to the historical-literary musicals aimed at the younger generation. The 500 performances in front of 400 000 guests each year make this one of the most frequented theatres of Hungary. The air-conditioned auditorium seats 901 persons and is quite popular in the circle of foreigners, so the operettas are subtitled in German, while the musicals are subtitled in English.
